According to a well-known industry figure, PlayStation fans could have a whole lot to look forward to during the early days of April.

p>PlayStation fans have had plenty of big news to celebrate in recent months. From the Bungie acquisition to the announcement of PSVR 2, there is already plenty to look forward to - though it seems like more reveals could be imminent.

In recent months, there have been plenty of leaks and rumored about PlayStation’s future, with many of these tied to future acquisitions and the all-but-confirmed Spartacus program. The company also has several exclusive games in development, with PlayStation Studios set to deliver several announced and unannounced games over the next few years. As such, an announcement can seemingly happen at any moment, and said announcement could take many different forms.

PlayStation fans hoping for some big news could be in luck, as Kinda Funny Games’ Greg Miller has given gamers a reason to be excited. According to Miller, he has heard three massive rumors about PlayStation, with these sources reporting that news could come as soon as next week. This PlayStation-related news is so major that Kinda Funny Games is delaying its PS I Love You podcast in preparation for whatever the reveals may be. While Miller has understandably provided no specifics on these rumors, fans are already speculating on the announcements.

The most likely announcement could be related to PlayStation Spartacus, which is rumored to feature a large catalog of classic PlayStation titles while merging PlayStation Now and PlayStation Plus. With PlayStation Now cards removed from retailers and reputable sources like Jason Schreier confirming that Spartacus is on the way, there are high expectations for the program. With some even dubbing it a competitor to Xbox Game Pass, it will be interesting to see if it is able to meet gamers’ lofty expectations.

Aside from the heavily anticipated reveal of Spartacus, it is anyone’s guess what the other two announcements could be. Some rumors have suggested that Sony may have purchased a Konami IP, though this remains unconfirmed. Similarly, fans have wondered whether the company will acquire a publisher in response to Microsoft’s purchase of Activision Blizzard. Game announcements are also a possibility, with one of the still-unknown PlayStation Studios games potentially being unveiled. Not only does Greg Miller avoid providing any specific details on these rumors, but his comment that it could be a “very interesting week” does not indicate if this news will be good or bad – the rumors could even be a mix of both.

Obviously, it is important to keep in mind that these are just rumors and that there is no guarantee that the rumors will be true or that the potential PlayStation announcements will be made over the next few days. Still, Greg Miller is a beloved and trustworthy member of the gaming industry for a reason, so PlayStation fans should keep an eye out for news next week.
