State of Play will arrive on August 6, 2020, at 1pm PT/4pm ET/9pm BST.
Sony specifically notes there will be “no big PS5 announcements,” and revealed that this State of Play will instead focus on upcoming third-party published PS4 and PS VR games. However, there will be “a few quick check-ins on third-party and indie games from June’s PS5 showcase.”
This State of Play will run around 40 minutes, and Sony makes it super clear that “there will be no PlayStation Studios updates in Thursday’s episode. There won’t be any updates around hardware, business, preorders, or dates either.”While we won’t be getting any big PS5 announcements, Sony did give us a bit more details on how compatibility will work with existing PlayStation 4 peripherals and accessories.
PlayStation 5 is scheduled to be released in Holiday 2020, and while we don’t have a price or release date yet, we do know some confirmed games and what the hardware will look like.
While PlayStation’s two big first-party games – The Last of Us Part 2 and Ghost of Tsushima, have already been released, there are still some big games too look forward to.
