State of Play Confirmed for August 6

After many rumors, Sony has finally announced a new State of Play, a new appointment with the series of presentations in which we will have updates and news about the upcoming games coming out on the Sony consoles.

The new event of State of Play will take place on Thursday, August 6, 2020, at 9 pm BST / 10 pm CEST, and will focus mainly on third-party games coming to PS4 and PS VR. Sid Shuman, the senior director of Sony Interactive Entertainment, also says there will be updates on indie and third-party titles announced during the PS5 event in June.

What to expect:

⚫ A focus on upcoming PS4 & PS VR games
⚫ A few quick check-ins on third-party and indie games from June’s PS5 showcase
⚫ No big PS5 announcements!

This new State of Play will last about 40 minutes, and apparently there will be a great lineup with a lot of gameplay and updates of various types, but no updates on PlayStation Studios. “The episode is weighing in at 40+ minutes(!). We’ve got a great lineup in store featuring plenty of new gameplay footage and other game updates. Can’t wait to hear what you think,” can be read on the official PlayStation Blog.

There will also be no great announcements in the next State of Play regarding PS5, such as hardware, business, pre-orders, or release dates. “And just to be super clear — there will be no PlayStation Studios updates in Thursday’s episode. There won’t be any updates around hardware, business, preorders, or dates either. On Thursday, our focus is squarely on showcasing some cool upcoming games coming to the broader PlayStation ecosystem. Should be fun,” concludes Shuman.

The next State of Play will be shown on August 6 at the above-mentioned timings, and will be visible on the company’s YouTube and Twitch channels.
