One of the tentpole titles featured during this week’s State of Play will be Korean developer Shift Up’s highly anticipated PS5 exclusive Stellar Blade, which is scheduled to release later this year. Already confirmed to be one of the 15 titles featured during the 40-minute presentation, the game’s social media account has suddenly sprung back into life ahead of the event.
The account previously tweeted on 22nd September, 2022 celebrating 10,000 followers – but it was reactivated overnight, well over a year later, to retweet Sony’s official State of Play confirmation. The game – a console debut from the Goddess of Victory: NIKKE developer – had been due out in 2023, but missed its target. Presumably we’ll learn about a firm release date later this week.
Stellar Blade was previously announced as Project EVE for multiple platforms, but Sony has since signed a publishing deal with Shift Up, making the team a second-party developer. In an announcement post, PS Studios boss Hermen Hulst said we should anticipate an “extended look” at the title, which will presumably include tons of gameplay, cinematics, and screenshots.
