As revealed, the first State of Play for the year will air on 31 January 2024 (time zone dependant) with around 40 minutes of content covered.

It’s expected the latest showcase will feature around 15 new games, including Rise of the Ronin from Team Ninja, and Stellar Blade from Shift Up. These are the only two games currently confirmed to appear during the State of Play, however PlayStation has confirmed a number of PlayStation 5 and PlayStation VR2 titles will also be on show.
