Sony never disappoints so be sure not to miss the big-ticket lineup.

With the release of Final Fantasy XVI on PS5 set for 22 June, the attention is shifting to Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, and maybe a few Wolverine tidbits, too.

Rumours suggest that Spider-Man 2 might be released by September this year, but it’s not just Insomniac stealing the spotlight.

The highlight of the evening seems to be Naughty Dog! We heard something about a multiplayer game set in its post-apocalyptic Last of Us universe.

Unfortunately, details about the sequel to the Final Fantasy VII Remake have been scarce.

All we know at this stage for sure is that director Naoki Hamaguchi confirmed a “full production”, with a tentative Winter 2023 release date.
