What Games Will Be Shown or Announced During State of Play?
According to Sony, we can look forward to 10 PS5 and PS4 games to be shown during the broadcast, consisting of "new updates and deep dives" as well as new game announcements. In terms of first-party titles, we'd anticipate fresh looks at Returnal and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. We're expecting to see some indies, too — think Stray, Jett: The Far Shore, and maybe Kena: Bridge of Spirits. Bigger budget games from third parties might include Resident Evil Village or Deathloop, but it's hard to predict.
As for new game announcements, we're less sure, but it would be very welcome if Naughty Dog showed off its multiplayer The Last of Us game, wouldn't it? Fortunately, we don't have long to wait.
How Long Will State of Play Be?
Sony has stated the State of Play presentation will be roughly 30 minutes in length.
