A PlayStation employee has teased that a major title will drop sometime in November, so it’s up to us to determine which game is on his mind.
The employee, who introduces himself on Twitter and Twitch simply as Yuichi, made a post on Twitter about the recently confirmed release date for Days Gone. The zombie-survival game is now slated to launch at the end of February, but Yuichi slyly hinted that another PlayStation title may precede Days Gone with a November release.
Days Gone 2/22/19… interesting.
Wonder what is coming November of this year..

So what is the game that Yuichi is hinting at? Considering Sony’s confirmed line-up for E3 and other currently undated PlayStation titles, there are four games that could potentially fill this slot, given that they don’t have confirmed launch windows: Death Stranding, The Last of Us Part II, Ghost of Tsushima, and Dreams.
Death Stranding and The Last of Us Part II are easily the most highly-anticipated games out of this list, but given how little we currently know about either of them, 2018 launches seem unlikely. Going by this logic, Dreams could be the most logical choice for a November launch, given that fans have seen a fair amount of the game, and it’s also confirmed to launch sometime in 2018. Alternatively, the mainstream appeal of Ghost of Tsushima‘s third-person action combat could more effectively keep PlayStation on people’s minds this fall, particularly with it spaced just far enough away from September’s Marvel’s Spider-Man.
Whether Yuichi is preparing us for a big reveal or just taking us for a ride, we will know for sure when Sony’s E3 press event goes down on Monday, June 11th. Those unable to make it to the LA Convention Center this year can simulate the experience by enjoying the press event in a number of theaters around the country.
