Update: Well, it's been several hours since this rumour surfaced, and there's no sign of a State of Play announcement. There's a slim chance that we could hear something later tonight, but at this point, we're not holding our breath.
Does this mean the rumour surrounding the supposed trailer is also false? Not necessarily, but we won't know for sure until the week draws to a close.
Original story: Uh oh, here we go again. Legion de Jugadores, one of the Spanish sites that claim The Last of Us: Part II will be getting a release date reveal this week, has doubled down. Now, the website is saying that there really is a State of Play livestream happening in just a couple of days, on Thursday the 30th May. This broadcast will apparently focus on Naughty Dog's sequel.
If The Last of Us: Part II really is getting a release date this week, then a special State of Play makes sense, right? We suppose so, but truth be told, we're still not completely sold on this rumour to begin with. With the greatest respect to Legion de Jugadores, we're seen plenty of websites capitalise on fake rumours before in order to keep the traffic rolling in. With that in mind, let's hope that this source turns out to be legit.
Either way, we'll know whether these rumours have any real weight to them very soon. If a State of Play is planned for this week, it won't be long at all before Sony makes a statement. We'll be keeping our eyes peeled.
