Sony revealed earlier today that its summer State of Play livestream will take place next Thursday, June 2. Starting at 6:00 PM EST, the showcase will run for 30 minutes and will primarily focus on games from other publishers.
State of Play usually returns every two months and alternates between focusing on one game and featuring several. The company’s last state of play was in March and was entirely focused on the release of Hogwarts Legacy, a title that sparked controversy due to series creator JK Rowling’s transphobia. The upcoming showcase promises more variety, though details beyond that have yet to be revealed.
The showcase will also include a preview of several unidentified Playstation VR2 games. The next VR headset has only one confirmed game so far, a spin-off from the Horizon franchise titled Horizon Call of the Mountain. Sony has announced that the headset will be launching with over 20 titles, so this event will likely be the start of expanding that list.
Previously, this showcase was tied to E3, but due to the cancellation of the event, Sony and other publishers opted to hold their own video announcement events. Other events scheduled for June include Summer Game Fest and Microsoft’s Xbox and Bethesda showcase.
State of Play can be watched live on Twitch or Sony’s Youtube channel.
