We're in the dying days of 2019 and, in about a year's time, there'll be a new generation of console hardware out in the world. As 2020 nears, Sony's got one last State of Play presentation planned—just don't hold your breath for any PS5 details amongst the game reveals and release date announcements.
Sony's set December 10 as the date for 2019's final State of Play. The presentation will start at 9:00 a.m. ET / 6:00 a.m. PT and last for about 20 minutes. It'll be streamed on the official PlayStation Twitch, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook accounts.
This will be the first State of Play since Sony confirmed that the PlayStation 5 would indeed be called the PlayStation 5, but there'll be no further details given on the console in the show. "It probably bears repeating: Don't expect any updates related to our next-gen plans in this episode," reads the announcement on the Official PlayStation Blog.
We still haven't heard much from Sucker Punch about its samurai epic Ghost of Tsushima since E3 2018, but in October Sony Interactive Entertainment president and CEO Jim Ryan confirmed that it's still on-track for a PS4 release. Maybe this'll be the time for its steel to shine?
Or perhaps we'll see more of The Last of Us Part 2 in this State of Play. Naughty Dog and Sony used the previous installment to announce a February 2020 release date for the game—a month later, the launch was pushed back to May 29, 2020. At the time, director Neil Druckmann said the delay was necessary in order to "bring the entire game up to a level of polish [the studio] would call Naughty Dog quality."
Here's one last idea for your State of Play bingo game: maybe this will be where Capcom officially announces the Resident Evil 3 remake which has been confirmed in multiple reports. Geoff Keighley has said the remake won't be part of the Game Awards on December 12, where we're also sure to see new games and get some release date announcements. The year may be nearly over, but there's still news left in the tank.
