Sony could be working on another big PlayStation Plus announcement that will prove popular with PS5 gamers.
The PS Plus July 2021 reveal is expected to be shared on Wednesday, June 30, and will be followed by the big release a week later.
The big announcement is expected to include at least two games, both of which will be available on PS5.
As always, Sony can do whatever they want, meaning they can change this format and provide as many games as they want.
And whenever they choose to offer a PlayStation 5 exclusive, like Operation: Tango in June 2021.
Perhaps to make up for the extra PS5 game, Sony also made it possible to download Star Wars: Squadrons and Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown.
And with another PS5 exclusive reportedly being planned for July, there could be another three-game PlayStation Plus announcement coming soon.

A new rumour this week claims that a native PS5 version of a Plague Tale: Innocence will be one of the free PS Plus games for July 2021.
This report was connected to the game’s sequel being revealed during the Xbox E3 event and being announced as an Xbox Game Pass title.
And like what was rumoured, a Microsoft announcement revealed this week: “If you want to experience A Plague Tale: Innocence and discover Amicia and Hugo’s story today, the game is available to play with Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows PC.
“No matter how you choose to play the game, there has never been a better time to discover or revisit the poignant tale of the story’s first arc in anticipation of its sequel’s release in 2022, which will also come day one with Xbox Game Pass.”

With that part of the rumour now proven correct, there’s a good chance that the PS5 version of A Plague Tale: Innocence will be a PlayStation Plus game.
A recent announcement confirmed that the next-gen upgrade would be released on Tuesday, July 6, the same day PS Plus games are released.
That’s just another piece of evidence to back up this rumour, although, like all reports of this nature, they still need to be taken with a big pinch of salt.
The next-generation version has been confirmed to feature the following:
4K UHD (on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5)60 FPS3D audio supportXbox One & PS4 versions can be upgraded for free.
And anyone who wants a short description of A Plague Tale can find it here: “A Plague Tale is the new story-focused action-adventure game series of rats, war, and death created by Asobo Studio and published by Focus Home Interactive.
“Follow the grim tale of young Amicia and her little brother Hugo, in a heartrending journey through the darkest hours of history. Hunted by Inquisition soldiers and surrounded by unstoppable swarms of rats, Amicia and Hugo will come to know and trust each other.
“As they struggle to survive against overwhelming odds, they will fight to find purpose in this brutal, unforgiving world.”
