As the games industry prepares for a summer filled with new festivals and game announcement showcases, PlayStation has unveiled its own plans for a digital showcase in June.

PlayStation is set to host a 30-minute State of Play show on June 2, however, given what’s mentioned in the short blog post announcing the stream, we’re unlikely to hear much about the growing portfolio. of the society. during the stream.

Instead, PlayStation plans to share announcements and reveals from third-party developers throughout the show. But while next week’s broadcast will be light on first-party details, we got a little glimpse of PlayStation’s future first-party plans – particularly in terms of live, mobile and PC games – in a recent trade segment update earlier this week.

It’s also possible that some first-party projects will appear in the PlayStation VR 2 segment of the broadcast. At the very least, this part of the show will offer a closer look at some of the more than 20 first-party and third-party games that Sony Interactive Entertainment plans to launch alongside PSVR2 down the line, but keep in mind that PlayStation is only teasing a “sneak peek” at the next inventory.

This will mark the second State of Play presentation of 2022. The first, a 20-minute presentation, took place in March and brought news and trailers for third-party PS4 and PS5 related projects like Luminous Productions . SpeakCapcom’s exoprimaland Housemarque Return cooperation update Ascent.
