This State of Play will only be for third party titles and will run for over 40 minutes. Expect to see new gameplay footage and game updates.
BUT, there won’t be anything on the release date for the upcoming PS5. The PS Blog stated the following:
There won’t be any updates around hardware, business, preorders, or dates either. On Thursday, our focus is squarely on showcasing some cool upcoming games coming to the broader PlayStation ecosystem. Should be fun!PlayStation Blog – Sid Shuman
Nothing about hardware, business, preorders or dates. But no mention of price? It would be safe to assume that “business” likely means price. But odd that it wasn’t specifically mentioned when everything else was.
It could be an oversight, but regardless, the third party showcase will still be worth a watch.
