Sony announces the next edition of State of Play. As the company announced on the PlayStation blog, the new episode of the web show will be broadcast on August 6 – so the rumors about the date have been confirmed. However: Details on the price, release date and pre-order phase of the PS5 are not expected for the new State of Play episode, as Sony clarifies to the announcement. Rather, the focus will be on upcoming PS4 and PSVR games from third-party manufacturers. In the show, which is scheduled to run for 40 minutes, there will also be updates to individual PS5 games.
The date for the next State of Play episode is set: Sony announces the new episode for August 6 – the rumors of a new episode in early August have thus been confirmed. However, details of the price and a final release date for the PlayStation 5 are not to be expected during the show. Sony does not want to give information about pre-orders in the next issue either. "There won't be any PlayStation Studios news this Thursday, nor will there be any hardware, business, pre-order, or release date news," informs the company.
In the foreground of the State of Play edition scheduled for Thursday, 10 p.m., upcoming games for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR from third-party manufacturers should be the focus. In addition, updates for indie games and third-party titles are planned for PS5, "which you could see in the June presentation". Sony continues to announce: "On Thursday, we'd like to focus entirely on showing you some cool games that will be released soon on the PlayStation platforms." The broadcast can be viewed on YouTube, among other things. We will submit the live stream later.
The new episode offers enough space for lots of new game scenes: The State of Play Show on August 6 is scheduled for a duration of 40 minutes. At what point Sony finally released the details about the PlayStation 5 (buy now) is not yet known. Among other things, fans eagerly await the announcement of a price and the final release date. As soon as the data is known, the PlayStation 5 should finally be able to be pre-ordered. The market launch is planned for the end of 2020.
