Sony Interactive Entertainment plans to present its corporate strategy for 2024 on May 23. We will learn more details about this giant's plans for all its divisions, including PlayStation.

It will be a very important day for Sony. On May 23 at 9:30 AM Eastern Time, CEO Kenichiro Yoshida and CFO Hiroki Totoki will present the corporate strategy for 2024 at a meeting.

Sony’s laconic announcement sparks a wave of rumors and speculations

The event announcement is, to put it mildly, concise. Beyond the date, it features only the telling phrase "Beyond the Borders." At this moment, it's hard to determine precisely what Sony aims to communicate with this. There are so many unanswered questions that the internet is buzzing with rumors and speculations. This is well demonstrated by the comments on the mentioned post announcing the event, which Sony posted on the X portal.

Will we finally find out when the PS5 Pro will be released next week? That's one possibility. In gaming hardware, we can't overlook the recent leaks regarding the successor to the PlayStation Portable.

Rumors suggest this device will function as a portable gaming console, not just a game-streaming device like the PlayStation Portal. Furthermore, this portable console will reportedly be equipped with a custom AMD APU processor—similar to those used in devices like the Steam Deck, Asus ROG Ally, and Lenovo Legion Go. It is also supposedly capable of running PS4 and even some PS5 games.

What do netizens foresee about Sony's alleged announcements?

Some netizens suggest that new PlayStation games for PC, and possibly even Xbox, may be announced during the event. This is inferred from the event's motto, "Beyond the Borders."

Let's also not forget that PlayStation Productions is working on several exciting projects, such as the Ghost of Tsushima movie, in preparation. Perhaps during the event, we'll learn something new about the Horizon universe, particularly as little has been said recently about the Horizon 2074 series for Netflix and the multiplayer game set in that world. All of this, however, is just speculation for now—let's wait until May 23, and then everything will become clear.
