The Last PlayStation State of Play for 2019 Is Coming Next Week

Written by on | OpenCritic

Sony Interactive has revealed one final State of Play live stream for 2019, and it's set for just a few days from now on December 10. While the company didn't specifically mention projects to be discussed during the 20-minute show, they did say for viewers to expect "new game reveals, release date announcements, new gameplay footage, PlayStation Worldwide Studios updates, and more."

It's likely one such news item will be an update on Ghost of Tsushima, which appears to be the last major console exclusive of the PS4 generation. When The Last of Us Part II was delayed three months into late May, it was reported that Ghost was thus pushed back as well in order to spread out the two big games' launches. Now that Naughty Dog's highly anticipated sequel looks firmly entrenched for May, it's possible we'll finally find out when to expect Sucker Punch's debut of their new samurai game.

With Geoff Keighley confirming that Resident Evil 3 is not (and never was) going to be one of The Game Awards' big reveals next week, it's also possible that Capcom has chosen this State of Play as the reveal event of their game that leaked days ago. The fact that it's appeared on the PSN store, albeit intended to be hidden, would indicate a reveal is imminent.

Sony also likes to use State of Play to highlight a few VR projects, so fans of the peripheral may want to tune in just for that possibility. Given that they also sad to expect "PlayStation Worldwide Studios updates," could it also be worth speculating that they've purchased a studio or two of their own following Microsoft's two-year spending spree and Sony's formal acquisition of Insomniac earlier this year? We'll see.

Historically, they've been able to cram a lot of content into these 20-minute shows, and we'll be sure to bring you all the news as it arrives in case you miss the show. As always, the show will stream live across Twitch, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter next Tuesday, December 10, at 6 am Pacific.
