However, Sony is taking the initiative with the PlayStation State of Play scheduled for Thursday, May 30.

How to Watch

Sony’s State of Play will be broadcast live at 3 PM PT / 6 PM ET on May 30. The stream will be available on YouTube, Twitch, and TikTok, ensuring multiple viewing options for all fans.

Official Expectations

This year, Sony will not use its usual PlayStation Showcase branding for the annual May stream. With limited first-party PlayStation game announcements for the upcoming months and years, this event aims to fill in the gaps.

The broadcast will last over 30 minutes. The company announced it will feature 14 new titles set to release on PS5 and PS VR2, including some exciting games from PlayStation Studios. Those are expected to launch later this year.

What We’re Likely to See

There’s speculation that Insomniac’s Wolverine game might make an appearance.

Although rumors suggest that the Silent Hill 2 remake could be highlighted, Konami might reserve that for its own Silent Hill Transmission event, which will follow the State of Play at 7 PM ET.

Many fans are hopeful that Sony will finally reveal Ghost of Tsushima 2, especially with the stunning PC port of the original game recently released.

Other potential showcases include Haven’s Fairgame$ and Firewalk’s Concord, along with an update from Bungie on The Final Shape, the expansion set to conclude Destiny 2’s Light and Darkness saga. Additionally, reports indicate that a new Astro game from Team Asobi is in development.

Moreover, Guerrilla Games is working on additional projects within the Horizon universe, with a rumored Lego spinoff.

Several other studios are also working on undisclosed projects, including Housemarque, Bluepoint, Santa Monica Studio, Bend, Media Molecule, and Naughty Dog. Fans are eagerly anticipating updates from these developers.
