Although The Game Awards just concluded last night, a new PlayStation State of Play is speculated to come as early as January 2021. A few new games were introduced during the awards night including Perfect Dark, It Takes Two, and Season – but a few titles were not mentioned. Resident Evil 8 was never featured as well as the extremely speculated Silent Hill remake for the PlayStation 5. To say the least, games with a huge following were all left in the abyss.
However, Sony might have something up its sleeve. State of Play events are usually loaded with game reveals, new trailers, and in-depth information about upcoming releases. With this in mind, it’s totally possible that Sony might have been holding back a few of its trailers and announcements during last night’s The Game Awards to save them for an upcoming State of Play showcase.
Considering the tech giant has to share the spotlight with Nintendo, Microsoft, and other gaming companies at The Game Awards, it would be absolutely logical that they held back several reveals for their own event in the future.
To give a semi-serious answer, Sony has some event planned for the start of the year for January/February, I won't be surprised if Capcom either did something themselves in January or took part of that due to Sony marketing. https://t.co/L4UeO3afFR

According to a post on Twitter by AestheticGamer, who has accurately predicted and leaked video game information lately, there might be some interesting news for PlayStation fans on the horizon. The author shared his speculation about the supposedly upcoming Sony event. He explained that, though he is not sure whether they will call it a State of Play showcase, he claims that Sony has some kind of an event scheduled for January or February 2021.
His correct predictions apply to the Resident Evil series as he even leaked the Resident Evil 3 remake, which launched a few months ago. He also correctly leaked information about the upcoming Resident Evil 8.
When he began spreading rumors for Resident Evil 8, he said that the game was originally planned as a third entry in the Revelations sub-series. Although all speculations should never be taken upfront, it’s worth mentioning that AestheticGamer’s intel has held its own in the past.
It is also worth noting that, though the leaker has stated that he is not certain if the event is indeed a State of Play event, Sony usually reveals new details during its branded showcases. During the last State of Play back in August, Sony made a few huge revelations including a release date for Spelunky 2, Godfall coming to the PlayStation 5 as well as new information about Crash Bandicoot 4.
