At the time, both were confirmed for vague “2018” release windows, with many assuming that those dates would end up being in the second half of that year, since titles like God of War got the slightly more specific release window of “Early 2018.” However, in an interview with The Telegraph, President of Sony Interactive Entertainment America Shawn Layden has hinted that the above two titles will be launching before E3 of next year. While discussing the publisher’s upcoming lineup of exclusives in 2017, Layden adds, “And the stuff coming in 2018, all of that is coming in the first half of the year, so. Is it in the next 12 to 13 months? Most likely. So.” While he never directly specifies which titles he is referring to, one could likely infer that Spider-Man and Detroit: Become Human both qualify, due to their current release windows. Although less likely than the aforementioned two games, Sony Bend’s apocalyptic open-world title Days Gone could also be part of Layden’s suggestion, as it has been shown at the previous two E3s but, unlike the other two games, does not yet have a release window.
