State of Play: What Can We Expect?
Written by aquitodovale

For the State of Play of June 2, 2022, Sony has already announced that there will be talk of PSVR 2 and third-party titles, however, some surprises may arise.

Sony just announced a new State of Play for Thursday 2 June at 11.59 pm and the carousel of hopes and expectations was immediately set in motion. According to the note published on the Playstation Blog, the direction that the appointment will take in terms of content seems clear, however surprises could be around the corner.

Follow us: we will try to do some forecast trying to stay as down to earth as possible.

Playstation VR 2

Let’s start with certainties. The press release published by Sony on the official blog explicitly refers to the products being developed for Playstation VR 2. The possibility of having a preview look at the titles in progress planned for the new viewer is therefore confirmed. As is known, the games available already at the launch of the device will be more than twenty, however, during the half hour dedicated to the event, the dissemination of new details regarding the viewer is not excluded.

Its futuristic design has already been unveiled a few months ago, with particular rounded shapes that recall PS5 also in terms of color. Its arrival on the market is expected during this year, except for further postponements that we really hope there won’t be.

Third Party Securities

Hogwarts Legacy is among the most anticipated titles

The second certainty is represented by the titles of third parts. Sony has in fact stated that its partners have fantastic new announcements in store, and is therefore sure that we will be able to take a look at something concrete during the course of the State of Play.

The most likely games appear to be the usual hot Warner Bros. brands: Suicide Squad, Gotham Knights and Hogwarts Legacy, with the latter two slated for later this year. Are you ready to bet on these names?

Half-Life Alyx

It is beyond doubt: Playstation VR 2 will need a strong one lineup upon its arrival in stores. A park of quality titles, of which, among others, the already confirmed and highly anticipated Horizon Call of the Mountain could be part.

In addition to the adventure developed by Guerrilla Games, however, it will be interesting to see what other games could support the new PS5 headset on day one. Half-Life Alyx appears to be one of the main suspects. With its shooter released in 2020 on PC, Valve is back in strength to hit the mark, restoring luster to a historical brand for too long in mothballs.

An adventure considered among the best virtual reality products on the market, which unfortunately many have not yet played because, in addition to a headset, it also requires a very performing computer. It could be the perfect title for the launch of PS VR 2, and who knows if it does not show itself at the State of Play.

Far be it from us to create false expectations and deceive lovers, but we cannot ignore the acceleration recorded in recent times regarding the rumors relating to a silent Hill developed by Bloober Team.

Last year the Polish company and Konami had announced a partnership aimed at the joint development of a mysterious project, and if we consider that in March 2022 the Japanese house renewed the Silent Hill trademark, the fog could begin to clear. Not to mention that Bloober’s CEO, Piotr Babieno, has chosen not to comment on some new rumors that the studio responsible for The Medium would like to helm the remake of Silent Hill 2postponing the announcement of what the team is working on to a presentation that will happen “as soon as possible”.

Final Fantasy XVI

From one piece from ninety to the next. Just a month ago, Final Fantasy XVI producer Naoki Yoshida released a statement that the development of the highly anticipated new title Square Enix should be at concluding remarks. What better time than a State of Play to make an appearance in public?

Despite many consider unlikely its release in 2022, the Sony event on June 2 could be a great stage to reveal the final sixteenth fantasy to fans around the world.

Street Fighter 6

According to Capcom, Street Fighter 6 is still preparing to be unveiled during the summer

We are incurable dreamers but we do not have too many illusions: Street Fighter 6 should be unveiled in all probability at Summer Game Fest. However, our hope of seeing it ahead of time does not die even if hit by a hadouken, with Sony’s State of Play seeming to happen just like a kid.

Capcom has already stated that the veil on Ryu and Co.’s new fighting game will be lifted in the summer, nevertheless the latest rumors insist on a presentation that should be imminent. We are therefore waiting, but for safety, we already have our karategi on.

First party titles

God of War: Ragnarok appears to be in the pipeline by the end of the year

Sony was clear: the event will focus on the games planned for PSVR 2 and on the works in progress at its third-party partners, so it is good not to place too many expectations on the possibility of seeing something made by Playstation Studios. However, some aspects that could generate must be taken into consideration surprisesmaybe right in the final minutes of the show.

There have been rumors of an announcement from the much talked about for months multiplayer of The Last of Us Part II, and we like to think this time could be the good one. In fact, to corroborate our idea there are some very insistent recent rumors that would like the development of the multiplayer mode of the Naughty Dog masterpiece really well underway. Fingers crossed.

To make it possible to share new information on God of War: Ragnarok, we think instead its release period. In fact, at present, the new chapter of the Norse saga of Kratos is expected in stores in the course of 2022, an indication that therefore makes the State of Play a perfect opportunity to return to spreading succulent images and news on the most beloved god of war ever. . If, on the other hand, Ragnarok does not find space within the event of 2 June, the possibility that a State of Play will be dedicated to him could become credible. monographic over the summer.

And you? What are your expectations for Sony’s upcoming event? We invite you to tell us in the comments below but not before reminding you that on June 2 it will be possible to follow the State of Play live with us on Twitch channel of Multiplayer.itstarting from 11.59 pm Italian time.
