State of Play is Sony’s regularly scheduled livestream show, which the platform holder’s committed to being a recurring event. The show will return this week on 6th August with a focus on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR software, as well as "quick" updates on some previously announced PlayStation 5 titles.
When Is Sony PlayStation’s State of Play Livestream?

Where Can You Watch the Next Sony PlayStation State of Play Livestream?
You'll be able to watch the next State of Play on Sony's official YouTube and Twitch accounts, through the respective links. We'll also bring you the State of Play right here on Push Square, along with live chat and reaction.
What Games Will Be Shown or Announced During State of Play?
There'll be no PlayStation Studios announcements or updates during the next State of Play, which is a surprise considering we're so close to the PS5's release now. There'll also only be small updates to previously announced PS5 games, presumably including Resident Evil Village, Bugsnax, and Kena: Bridge of Spirits. We expect new trailers for Deathloop and Ghostwire Tokyo, too.
Our guess is that this 40 minute showcase will focus on titles that Sony has marketing partnerships with. That means we'll almost certainly see Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War at some point, while also getting updates on titles like NBA 2K21, FIFA 21, and Marvel's Avengers. There'll also be new PlayStation VR announcements and PS4 indie reveals, although we'll need to wait and see what those entail.
