PlayStation started the new year with a montage of what’s to come in 2017, but it looks like they forgot to check with developers.
Undoubtedly, PlayStation gamers have a lot to look forward to in 2017. From first to third party developers, the platform will host massive AAA games like Horizon Zero Dawn and smaller indies like Drawn to Death. To remind players of what’s headed their way, PlayStation Europe released a montage on YouTube of games to look forward to this year.
While the trailer above offers some great insight and raises expectations, it doesn’t come without error. Both Detroit: Become Human by Quantic Dream and Dreams by Media Molecule were included in the montage, but it’s not looking like they’re locked into the 2017 release schedule. Shuhei Yoshida, the president of worldwide studios at Sony Interactive Entertainment addressed the error once a fan expressed skepticism:

Despite addressing the mistake on Twitter, Yoshida still has the 2017 montage pinned on his Twitter wall. At the time of this publication, the trailer on PlayStation Europe’s Youtube channel also remains unedited with both Detroit and Dreams still appearing with the rest of the 2017 line-up.
While this is likely nothing more than a genuine mistake between developers, Sony and marketers, it’s unfortunate to see a trailer that will likely mislead a number of gamers this year.
With the first half of the year looking game conference free, it’s unlikely Sony will address what all is launching in 2017 before E3 in June. In the meantime, gamers can count on more than a handful of games, including Gravity Rush 2 (Jan. 18, 2017), Nier: Automata (Feb. 23, 2017) and Horizon Zero Dawn (Feb. 28, 2017) to launch early on this year.
