Sony State of Play is a semi-regular digital event, which showcases the latest and greatest PlayStation news, updates, reveals and announcements.
Since the showcase began in 2019, Sony has used State of Play to reveal The Last of Us 2 release date, debut gameplay footage for Ghost of Tsushima, and offer a deep dive on Hogwarts Legacy. So it's always worth tuning in to the State of Play live streams if you want to be alerted to any big announcements for PS5 games, PSVR games, PS4 games, and PSVR 2.
The last Sony State of Play took place on June 2 and it gave us a look at some of the third-party titles that will be coming to the PlayStation platform and the upcoming PSVR 2.
At the moment, we don’t have a date for the next State of Play but we’d be hoping that it’ll have a focus on first-party games now that we’ve gotten a glimpse at some of the third-party releases that are on the horizon.
Want to know more? Read on for everything we know so far about the next Sony State of Play event and make sure to check out our roundup of what happened in the last Sony State of Play if you missed it.
When is the next Sony State of Play?
We currently don’t have a date for the next Sony State of Play. There have been some reports via journalist and insider Tom Henderson (opens in new tab) that we could in fact see a second State of Play held in June as a result of a rumored God of War: Ragnarök and “some other important announcements”.
However, we’ve had nothing official from Sony just yet.
What can we expect from the next Sony State of Play?
Sony hasn’t told us a date for the next State of Play, never mind what announcements it will include. That said, we can try to take a guess at what might be covered. Given the last State of Play focused on upcoming third-party and PSVR 2 titles, we like to think that the next State of Play will focus on upcoming first-party titles.
There’s been plenty of chatter around the God of War: Ragnarök release date, for instance, and it does feel pretty likely that the game could feature in the next State of Play. Whether or not that would mean a dedicated State of Play or something that's part of a wider slate of announcements, we don’t know and we can't be certain about anything until Sony makes some official announcements.
GOW "announcement later this month".This is consistent with some other important announcements from Sony during the last week of this month. So there's a possible a SoP inbound? Hoping to get those details soon. https://t.co/MnceyJWxnHJune 10, 2022
