The PS Plus Free Games for September 2022 Announcement Could Be Extra Special

Sony is expected to announce the PS Plus free games for September 2022 soon, but it’s possible this reveal is accompanied by something special.

As August 2022 comes to an end, many PS Plus fans are eager to see what comes next. Sony is expected to reveal the PS Plus free games for September 2022 on August 31, release them on September 6, and follow up with the Extra and Premium games in the weeks thereafter.

However, based on other rumors, it’s possible that the upcoming PS Plus Announcement isn’t just a simple new games reveal. September is typically a big month for PlayStation, and it would be wise to leverage the hype around PS Plus with the hype of another reveal.

PS Plus Announcement, PlayStation Showcase Rumors

Sony has hosted a PlayStation Showcase every September over the past few years, with recent rumors suggesting the next PS Showcase will take place on September 8. Sony’s announcements are hard to track, but there’s little reason this Showcase couldn’t be announced on August 31. State of Plays are typically announced at the start of the week they take place, with this also happening once with a PS Showcase. At the same time, some State of Plays and at least one PS Showcase were announced a full week ahead of time. With this rumored PS Showcase likely showing God of War Ragnaroka week of hype would be good for the reveal.


In the past, Sony has withheld, delayed, or otherwise changed its typical PS Plus reveal pattern to coincide with something else. PS Plus announcements have been delayed to appear at a bigger event before, as an example. That’s unlikely to happen here since the PS Plus September 2022 release date is 2 days before the rumored event, but releasing a PS Blog with a focus on the September 2022 free games, potentially another announcement or two (as it did with the Yakuza games for PS Plus), and a final line going, “Oh hey, join us on September 8 for our PS Showcase” would be incredibly hype inducing.


It would keep a lot of attention on Sony for the next week or so going into the event, and it’s also noteworthy that Sony likes to stand out. This is one reason it pulled out of E3 even before the pandemic began. There are a lot of events lined up for September, including the Disney and Marvel Games Showcase on September 9 and Ubisoft Forward on September 10, and if the PlayStation Showcase happens on September 8, this would be a good way to keep fans hyped for and focused on the event. It would stand out and overshadow the others if it revealed all of its major announcements for September in one package, so while it remains to be seen, it stands to reason August 31 will be a big day for PS Plus subscribers.
