While the year was a lousy start for PlayStation News, we had at least one Sony Sizzle preview from CES 2021 to exhaust our collective editorial effort. In it, the platform owner included fine print that included target dates for a ton of titles, including Pragmata and Kena: Bridge of Spirits. While we weren’t expecting most of the planned windows to remain, it was interesting to learn what kind of timeline developers had attached to projects.
However, the platform owner must have gotten some unsatisfied calls the next day, as his YouTube upload of the same trailer removed all target dates from the end of the clip. Gematsu saw the change with her eagle eyes:

So what does this all mean? Well, nothing really. The dates were still just internal goals, and while they may be taken as a rough indication of when to expect games, they were never supposed to be confirmation. As we said at the beginning of this article, it has been a slow month so far, but we hope things will improve in the coming weeks.
