Sony Will Reportedly Hold State Of Play In March Followed By A PlayStation Showcase Before June
Sony will reportedly hold a State of Play in March, 2023, followed by a PlayStation Showcase event before June.
During the latest episode of Game Mess Decides, Jeff Grubb, who is known for his connections in the game industry, revealed that Sony will be holding a State of Play in March, 2023, followed by a PlayStation showcase sometime prior to June.
Grubb warned that fans shouldn’t get their hopes up too high, as the State of Play set for March (possibly earlier) will be pretty low-key. He added that Sony is withholding bigger games for a Playstation Showcase that is planned to take place sometime prior to June, essentially before E3 2023.
According to Grubb, PlayStation will likely be relaunching its marketing campaign very soon, which will begin with State of Play in March. The PlayStation Showcase that happens will be the one that will have major reveals and announcements.
The unannounced PlayStation sci-fi RPG that is allegedly being developed in Unreal Engine 5 by developer People Can Fly may be one of the games featured in either the State of Play or the PlayStation Showcase that follows.
Based on leaked information, the game is a sci-fi RPG developed in Unreal Engine 5 as first/second party PlayStation IP via the console maker’s xDev program in collaboration with an external game studio, likely People Can Fly. Additionally, Dusk Golem, who is known for his contacts in the game industry, stated that he couldn’t say whether the project will ever see the light of day, Though, he mentioned that he had seen a lot more of the unannounced game, including more recent footage than what is seen in the leaked video.
Golem stated that this new PlayStation title is currently at a point where characters are fully voiced and music has specifically been composed for it. According to him the game is in a far more polished and fine-tuned shape than what the leaked video indicates. He added that he’s looking forward to the game eventually getting announced and the developer getting the opportunity to properly reveal it to the public.
