The next PlayStation State of Play show will run on October 27th, and viewers can expect to learn more about upcoming third-party titles for the PS4 and PS5. The previous time Sony had a State of Play event was in July, and it featured games from the publisher’s third-party partners. As a result, several PlayStation titles were overlooked, including the God of War (2018) sequel.
Sony’s September 2021 exhibition, which lacked the State of Play moniker, filled in a lot of blanks about the company’s future ambitions. The September presentation, in particular, gave fans their first look at God of War: Ragnarök in action, thanks to an extended gameplay preview.
A new State of Play is heading your way next Wednesday, October 27 starting at 2:00pm PT / 10:00pm BST.

Teaser trailers for two of Insomniac Games’ upcoming major projects, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Marvel’s Wolverine were also shown during the broadcast. During the event, the remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Ghostwire: Tokyo garnered some attention. The hardware company is now preparing to launch a new show in the near future.
According to a post on the PlayStation Blog, the next State of Play show will air in less than a week, on Wednesday, October 27 at 2:00 PM PT. The stream will run about 20 minutes, just long enough for many “announcements and updates” about impending third-party releases for the PS4 and PS5. Those who want to witness the mini-event live can do so via PlayStation’s official Twitch and YouTube channels, as is always the case.
Only Sony’s third-party partners will be able to release fresh information, according to the blog post. As a result, no one should expect new information from PlayStation Studios’ first-party teams – of which there are now 16 in total – during the 20-minute live.
The announcements of Moss: Book 2 and IllFonic’s Arcadegeddon were among the highlights of the State of Play event in July 2021. Sega’s Demon Slayer, for example, received more gameplay videos. It’s only natural that comparable pieces will be featured in the future State of Play. With Call of Duty: Vanguard, Battlefield 2042, and the Grand Theft Auto trilogy all releasing in November, it’s safe to assume that at least one of them will show up.
