At this turn Sony has completely upset the routine which has always characterized the announcement of free games for the PlayStation Plus. First of all, it revealed and launched in advance one of the two titles: Call of Duty WWII was presented last Monday on the occasion of Memorial Day – the day in which the USA are commemorated fallen American soldiers of all wars – and ended up in the Instant Game Collection yesterday, a week earlier than usual.
The announcement of the second game was expected today at 17:30, yet it did not happen. Sony has not provided any official explanation on the matter, but it is highly likely that the Japanese company has decided to act in this way so as not to divert the attention of the players from another major event expected for today, namely the State of Play of The Last of Us Part 2, which will start at 22:00 with the participation of Neil Druckmann – we at Everyeye will follow him live on Twitch starting from 19:00. In retrospect, the Call of Duty WWII announcement tweet of Monday 25 May, in which Sony wrote “we will reveal more details on our monthly line-up later in the week“, without precisely providing any specific date.
At the moment, therefore, we must necessarily wait a little longer to find out if the rumors that want Star Wars Battlefront 2 as the second free game for PlayStation Plus are true or not.
