Sony's Next State of Play is Set, But Don't Expect Any PS5 News

There will be some game reveals, though.

Sony's set the date for its next State of Play, showcasing what's next for its collection of studios and teasing some new game reveals next week. Don't expect to see any news on the next PlayStation, though.

Announced this morning, the video presentation is set to run on September 24 at 4:00 p.m. ET / 1:00 p.m. PT. It'll go for around 20 minutes on Sony's Twitch and YouTube pages, as well as Twitter and Facebook. But while Sony's bringing new games and a new look to its Direct-alike, one thing it won't have is any news on what's been called the PS5.

"Don't expect any updates related to our next-gen plans in this episode," reads the Sony announcement blog.

But while you won't see a glimpse of the PS5, Sony is confirming new content from PlayStation's Worldwide Studios, a collective that Insomniac Games recently joined. The Spidey suits for Marvel's Spider-Man have been rolling out for a while since launch though, even including two suits for the recent Far From Home film, so new content would be surprising.

One definite thing to watch for is news on Sucker Punch's Ghost of Tsushima, one of Sony's big exclusives that's still lingering around without a definite release date. News about any Sony exclusive, like The Last of Us Part Two, is a fair bet, but Tsushima has been drifting around without too many concrete details for a while. It'll be interesting to see what Sony is planning for the holiday season and the new year ahead.
