Sony announces new PlayStation State of Play livestream for May

Sony’s next big State of Play showcase is coming this Thursday, May 30, the PlayStation maker announced. May’s State of Play will feature reveals and new details on Sony’s game lineup for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation VR 2.

The new State of Play will stream live at 6 p.m. EDT/3 p.m. PDT on the official PlayStation YouTube, Twitch, and TikTok channels. The showcase will run 30 minutes and feature 14 titles, including an unspecified number of games from PlayStation Studios arriving later this year, Sony said.

PlayStation Studios’ announced lineup includes Marvel’s Wolverine from Insomniac Games, Guerrilla Games’ multiplayer Horizon game, Haven Studios’ Fairgame$, and Firewalk Studios’ Concord. Sony also has a long list of live-service games that it plans to ship in the next few years, including Bungie’s new Marathon, and the new showcase could offer more insight into that plan. Of course, we can expect unannounced games too — maybe a Spider-Man 2 spinoff from Insomniac? — and updates from third parties, considering Konami’s Silent Hill 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3 remakes are slated to launch this year.

Publisher Konami will follow Thursday’s State of Play livestream with an event of its own: the second Silent Hill Transmission livestream, which promises new details on upcoming Silent Hill games and film Return to Silent Hill.
