The show will focus on upcoming third-party games for the PS4 and PS5, as well as upgrades to existing titles. There are no specifics other than the fact that it will last around 20 minutes, thus the announcements will most likely be brief.
While PlayStation is keeping quiet about what will be shown off, we can rule out a few big games. Horizon Forbidden West is developed by Guerrilla Games, a subsidiary of Sony Europe, so don’t expect any final trailers before its February launch just yet. We’ll also have to wait a little longer for God of War Ragnarok news, as that is developed by Sony Santa Monica Studio.
It’s been a good week for PlayStation news already, as yesterday we finally got a trailer for the upcoming Uncharted film, starring Tom Holland as Nathan Drake. The reception seems to be fairly mixed, with the trailer performing well on YouTube, while some fans online question the need for a film adaptation at all. The casting of Holland as Nathan Drake and Mark Wahlberg as Sully has also been a point of contention among fans, with some feeling that they do not embody the characters as they appear in the games particularly well.
The next PlayStation State of Play event will take place on October 27th, according to Sony. The showcase will begin at 2 p.m. PT/10 p.m. BST on Wednesday, less than a week from now.
This is the first Sony event since last month’s PlayStation Showcase, which was full of surprise announcements. The show opened on the long-awaited news of a Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic remake, closing on another fan-pleaser with God of War Ragnarok’s official reveal. Considering these huge reveals were crammed into a 40-minute show, it’s likely that this shorted one could still come with some big news.
