The next Sony State of Play event will focus on indie and third-party titles, and it's airing very soon indeed.

Since the series 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 more. 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 new PS5 games.

The last State of Play aired on April 13, 2023, and was followed in May by a full-blown PlayStation Showcase. The former focused entirely on Final Fantasy 16, with a 25-minute deep-dive on the game, while the latter revealed games like Marathon, Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake, and more. Now, we're right on the cusp of a new State of Play event. Here's what we know so far.

Sony has said that the upcoming State of Play event will focus on indie and third-party titles. Really, it's anyone's guess as to what could be shown, but we're betting to see new trailers for games like Assassin's Creed Mirage, and possibly even Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. Don't expect too much on the first-party side. It's possible we may see updates for Marvel's Spider-Man 2, but mostly, we'll be dealing with third-party titles here.
