Although Sony has not specified which games will be displayed, there are several upcoming titles that can be part of the showcase. The last of us 2, Ghost of Tsushima, Dreams, Days Gone and Death Stranding are in the process of preparation, and Sony will probably pepper in some Indian and VR Exclusions as well. The company has announced that it will skip E3 this year, so a series of smaller presentations may be part of its way to fill the gap. Shawn Layden stressed that "the world has changed, but E3 does not necessarily have changed with it." these will come regularly. Nintendo and Microsoft have similar presentations called Nintendo Direct and Inside Xbox, respectively. Microsoft conducted a similarly focused presentation on Indians on March 26th.
