PlayStation has officially announced a brand new State of Play showcase, set to take place ahead of the major ‘not-E3’ June gaming conferences. At this stage, it appears the show will focus on PlayStation VR2 game reveals, as well as highlights from third-party partners. There’ll be around 30 minutes of announcements included – with early speculation that this could include Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 alongside games like Stray, a new Resident Evil, and Street Fighter 6.
Update: The PlayStation State of Play has now happened, with several great announcements and in-depth look at upcoming games, including Final Fantasy 16, Street Fighter 6, and Resident Evil 4 Remake.

At this stage, all we know is that State of Play will include ‘reveals from [PlayStation’s] third-party partners, plus a sneak peek at several games in development for PlayStation VR2’.
That said, there are already heavy rumours about what could appear during the show.
PlayStation State of Play: Rumours and Leaks
Unconfirmed lists floating around the internet claim a number of long-anticipated games will make an appearance during the latest PlayStation Stay of Play. While there are several lists being passed around, many contain common games, including:
- Street Fighter 6
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 + PlayStation VR2 reveal
- Resident Evil Village: Last Hopes update + PlayStation VR2 reveal
- Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora + PlayStation VR 2 reveal
- Project Eve
- Little Devil Inside
Also included in these lists are alleged reveals for new games including: ‘Project Destructive‘, ‘Daemonium‘ and ‘Resident Evil 4 2023′.
At this stage, these lists should be taken with a massive grain of salt. ‘Leaking’ major reveals has become a cottage industry on Twitter, and numerous fakes are now making their way online, each a little less credible than the other.
Regardless, it’s always fun to speculate – and any of these titles could reasonably put in an appearance. You’ll just have to tune into the event to see which lists got it right.
