September PlayStation State of Play Announced

It’s been a while since we’ve gotten one of these. After five months of near radio silence with the last month airing in early May, Sony announced that the third and perhaps biggest episode of State of Play will air on September 24, 1 PM pacific, or 4 PM eastern standard. Coincidentally, this episode is also airing the same date as a major The Last of Us Part II media event, which will unfold behind closed doors but will reportedly last about three hours. To add more fuel to the speculation fire, Sony promised new game reveals, new content from their first-party studios, and additional updates. As usual, there will be no information regarding next-gen titles.

The episode is estimated to last 20 minutes, significantly shorter than your average Nintendo Direct. However, considering how silent Sony has been regarding their upcoming projects with the exception of Death Stranding, this will undoubtedly be an event worth watching. The prospect of The Last of Us Part II making an appearance in this episode for the first time since E3 2018 certainly is likely. If I were to bet, I would expect a relatively long gameplay trailer in addition to a release date of February 2020. Rumors of a multiplayer beta are also overwhelming internet forums, so perhaps something like that could be announced.

Given that Sony unveiled the date nearly a weak in advance unlike previous episodes and made a weird trailer about it on their official Twitter account, I think this is something Sony wants people to look forward to. We might also have an actual human present the show instead of the disembodied female voice that accompanied previous episodes. Regardless of what is presented, expect some exciting stuff from Sony next week. What do you want announced at this State of Play? Do you expect to be bored yet again or do you think this will be a much-improved iteration of this series? Let’s talk about it in the comments below and stay tuned for more content on Sick Critic!
