Peo­ple look­ing for­ward to play­ing The Last of Us II or the Final Fan­ta­sy VII Remake, will be sore­ly dis­ap­point­ed. Sony pulled out of the PAX East show, giv­ing a state­ment for their absence in a PlaySta­tion Blog update.

Sony Will Not Be Attending PAX East This Year

UPDATE: Today, Sony Inter­ac­tive Enter­tain­ment made the deci­sion to can­cel its par­tic­i­pa­tion at PAX East in Boston this year due to increas­ing con­cerns relat­ed to COVID-19 (also known as “nov­el coro­n­avirus”). We felt this was the safest option as the sit­u­a­tion is chang­ing dai­ly. We are dis­ap­point­ed to can­cel our par­tic­i­pa­tion in this event, but the health and safe­ty of our glob­al work­force is our high­est concern.

Mul­ti­ple PlaySta­tion titles were sup­posed to be avail­able for peo­ple to try out, and there was some hope more infor­ma­tion about any­thing PlaySta­tion relat­ed would come to light.

Hopes have been dashed how­ev­er, as it seems there will be no demos or infor­ma­tion com­ing from Sony for quite some time.
