Sony has announced a new State of Play to be held tomorrow, Thursday, February 25 at 11 p.m. French time. This will notably offer more information on 10 games whose release is near.
Finally ! Sony has unveiled the date of its new speech. The last State of Play was in October 2020, about a month before the release of the PlayStation 5. In other words, an eternity. After a very satisfactory launch in terms of sales, but marred by major inventory problems, the PS5 is still lacking games. New games, since let’s remember that the PlayStation 5 is backwards compatible, and offers a number of “free” games through the PS Plus Collection. So we are finally going to have some news on what we can expect from this year 2021 on the side of Sony and the PlayStation 5.
State of Play: update on exclusive PS4 and PS5 games, third-party and independent publishers
Announced on the official PlayStation Twitter account, this new State of Play will feature games. On the PlayStation blog, Sony explains that this State of Play will give new information on 10 PS4 and PS5 games. First information therefore, no exclusive PS5 game will be presented here. These will only be cross-gen games. This is not a surprise, since Sony had already said that the PS4 will still be powered by games for several years.
This State of Play should last about thirty minutes. Besides the new information on these 10 games, Sony is also talking about new announcements, and D’additional information on third party and independent games presented at the PS5 Showcase in June 2020. It is also specified that no announcement relating to the material will be made. We will therefore not know more about the new PlayStation VR, announced yesterday to everyone’s surprise.
Many game releases in 2021 have been postponed, possibly due to the Covid-19 crisis and PS5 inventory issues. This State of Play is therefore excellent news, as the schedule of known releases for 2021 is slim. After the announcement of some release dates at CES 2021, Sony had removed some dates from the trailer, which suggested that the wait for some games would still be long.
Le State of Play se tiendra tomorrow Thursday February 25, 2021 at 11 p.m. French time. It will be available live on YouTube and Twitch, on official PlayStation accounts.
