Sony has announced the next State of Play event and we don’t have long to wait because it is taking place tomorrow, May 30th at 6 pm EST/11 pm BST. This comes before Summer Games Fest kicks off the following week and it will give us a look at over a dozen games that are set to be released on PS5 over the coming months and years.

The event was announced on the official PlayStation X account saying, “Tune in live for updates on 14 PS5 and PS VR2 titles, including a look at PlayStation Studios titles arriving later this year.”

What Can We Expect To See During State Of Play?

14 games will be showcased during the State of Play event, with some being known and some being brand new. With the success of Helldivers 2, Sony is looking to continue its push into live service games, and we can expect to see new information on the sci-fi online shooter Concord, as well as Fairgame$.

Ghost of Tsushima recently launched on PC to over 77,000 concurrent players, signaling that Sony’s decision to focus more on PC is going to pay off. Could we see an announcement for a PC port of God of War Ragnarok or Spider-Man 2?

We can also expect to see an appearance by Destiny 2 and its upcoming The Final Shape expansion that is due to launch on June 4th after having been delayed four months. Bungie is also working on reviving one of its 90s IPs, Marathon, which is often cited as a spiritual predecessor to Halo. The rebooted PVP extraction shooter is scheduled to launch in 2025.

When it comes to third-party releases, we can expect to see some announcements from Capcom who often announce its releases during Sony State of Play events. There has been a lot of speculation regarding the future of Resident Evil, with the obvious next installments being Resident Evil 9 and Resident Evil 5 Remake. However, recent leaks indicate that we could be set to see both Resident Evil Code Veronica Remake and Resident Evil 0 Remake before either of those games. But as with any leak, take them with a pinch of salt until an official announcement is made.

The State of Play event will be broadcast on YouTube, Twitch, and TikTok.
