From their lack of presence of E3 this year, PlayStation hopes to continue the trend of supplying information in bite-size chunks. Starting back in March this year, shows have seen a multitude of announcements, release dates and gameplay reveals. With this generation of console gaming coming to a close, its a perfect way of conveying information.
The show is said to contain no new information on new hardware. It is, however, going to deliver us information on Naughty Dog’s latest PlayStation game, ‘The Last of Us: Part II’. It’s hoped that this information will reveal a release date which has various rumors circulating at the moment. The game hasn’t had any new public information for some time so will be exciting to see.

Other suspected PlayStation announcements are developers Sucker Punch Productions, ‘Ghosts of Tsushima’, which has remained silent since E3 2018. With the fall season upon us, games like ‘Death Stranding’ and ‘Final Fantasy VII Remake’ are suspected to be featured. With no E3 presence this year, it will be interesting to see what Sony has been working on. Also, a look into the future months as we wind down this console generation.
The show is said to be a ‘hefty show’ and ‘sporting a new look’. PlayStation will showcase State of Play via YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, and Facebook on Tuesday, September 24th at 1:00 PM ET/4:00 PM PT.
