On this episode of Video Games 2 the MAX hosts Sean Garmer and Marc Morrison discuss the PlayStation 5 event being back on for June 11. The guys give a final preview of some games that could be announced or shown off at the event.
There was also a Destiny 2 event yesterday and Bungie even announced what’s ahead in 2021 and 2022. Could this finally be what gets more people into playing Destiny 2, or is this just a case of current fans should be excited for more content coming?
