E3: Sony Zeroes in on Franchise Games

Sony made clear its focus on big franchise games at this year's E3 conference.

(CCM) — During Sony's scheduled event at Tuesday's E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) video game conference, the electronics company revealed plans to concentrate largely on franchise games. Sony marked the end of the conference, which attracts international visitors, with a slew of trailers for its forthcoming video game projects. The first trailer previewed before the audience was for God of War, which was followed Horizon: Zero Dawn, and Resident Evil VII, with Sony subsidiaries Bend Studio, Team ICO, and Quantic Dream also getting a chance to preview their new releases: Days Gone, The Last Guardian, and Detroit: Become Human, respectively. The company continued this pattern of surprise reveals with trailer previews of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, LEGO Star Wars: The Force, a PS4-exclusive Spider-Man game, as well as with an announcement of its plans to revamp their beloved Crash Bandicoot games.

Also unveiled during the event was Sony's PlayStation VR, which was given a release date of Oct. 13. Sony has expressed plans to roll out more than 50 games for the unit before December, including Resident Evil VII, which has already been determined to be compatible with the virtual reality set. Sony wrapped up the event — and the conference — with a live demo of its zombie-fighting game, Days Gone, which is slated for official release on Oct. 25.
