According to Sony, this State of Play event will focus primarily on Deathloop, and should provide a closer look at Arkane Studios highly-anticipated first-person shooter.

We already know that Deathloop is due to release on September 14, 2021, so we're expecting a more detailed explanation on how the game's time loop elements work and a couple of nice surprises. 

We're hoping that, in addition to shedding some light on what's new with Deathloop, that this showcase will also reveal some key dates for third-party titles and show off a couple of intriguing looking indie games for PS5.
