Don’t expect to hear anything about the PlayStation 5 during next week’s PlayStation Network State of Play, says a short blog entry on the official PlayStation website.
Instead, gamers can look forward to “around twenty minutes” of new game reveals, release date announcements, new gameplay footage, PlayStation Worldwide Studios updates, and more on Tuesday, December 10 at 6:00 am PST/9:00 am EST. While there won’t be anything new regarding the PlayStation 5, there’s sure to be all sorts of tantalizing information regardless, as recent leaks, rumors, and speculation suggest quite a few fan-favorites and highly-anticipated titles could be featured.
Many gamers speculate the upcoming State of Play will announce the official release date for Ghost of Tsushima, and perhaps some information regarding The Last of Us Part II. Elsewhere on the internet, tweets issued by Bluepoint Games on Halloween and Thanksgiving both seemed to tease any number of possible games, including potential remasters of X-Men, Syphon Filter, Silent Hill, Metal Gear Solid, and, of course, Demon’s Souls—the spiritual predecessor of the Dark Souls franchise. Any of these titles could be contenders for an announcement during State of Play.
One title that may find its way into the State of Play broadcast deserves a special mention—Resident Evil 3. Earlier this week, images that confirmed RE3‘s remake were accidentally leaked via PlayStation Network’s API. The first verifiable confirmation of a Resident Evil 3 remake, that someone could accidentally leak the images begins to make sense if the game’s first official reveal was to come in next week’s State of Play. In addition, Resident Evil 2 is battling Death Stranding at this year’s The Game Awards on December 12—but latest news states that RE3 will not make an appearance at the awards show, something which would seem odd—unless it was already revealed via PSN’s State of Play.
