Sony Won’t Be At San Diego Comic Con 2019

by Liana Ruppert

E3 has come and gone and survived without Sony’s presence this year, but it looks like there’s another major event that the PlayStation powerhouse will be missing out on as well: San Diego Comic Con 2019. 

The confirmation comes from Deadline that Sony has made the decision to skip out on this year’s festivities, which is a bit odd considering they made their plans known for game adaptations for the big and small screen known earlier this year. That being said, there will be tons of other big movie and television show news with, of course, gaming thrown in, but given that the company forgo their place at a few major events now, including their own PlayStation Experience last year, it will be interesting to see what they have up their sleeve because it’s got to be big. 

Sony Pictures is one of three major film companies sitting out this year, including Warner Bros. Studios and Universal Pictures. This means no panels for fans to enjoy, a huge staple for the big event. 

Twitter has responded to the news with concerns that this could be setting a big trend for SDCC, arguably one of the largest fan events in the United States. With 3 big names sitting out, could this possibly set a presedent for future attendence, or was it that schedules just didn’t line up for what’s coming out in 2019? 

What do you think about Sony Pictures’ decision to sit out San Diego Comic Con 2019? Smart move or continued mistake? Sound off with your thoughts over on Twitter @PrimaGames.
