October is coming to an end, and to mark the occasion with style Sony announced a new State of Play, set to take place next week. The event is set to feature new reveals, as well as updates on many already announced PS4 and PS5 titles.
The previous State of Play took place in early July and featured a new trailer for both SIFU and for the recently released Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles, as well as a 9 minutes long Deathloop gameplay. The event also featured a look at Death Stranding Director’s Cut.
The announcement of the new State of Play was made by Sony on the PlayStation Blog, where Sid Shuman, SIE Content Communications’ Senior Director, not only revealed that the event will take place next Wednesday, October 27, 2021, at 2:00 pm PT/10:00 pm BST/ 11:00 pm CEST, but that it will also feature updates and new looks at previously-announced games as well as the reveal of new IPs. You will be able to watch the event live on both Twitch and YouTube. The broadcast will have, according to Shuman, around 20 minutes of runtime.
A new State of Play is heading your way next Wednesday, October 27 starting at 2:00pm PT / 10:00pm BST.

As soon as the news regarding the new State of Play started to circulate the community began to guest which titles will be featured on the upcoming event’s lineup. Among the many picks, we have the presence of big names such as Final Fantasy XVI, God of War Ragnarök, as well as news regarding both the current state of Harry Potter-themed RPG Hogwarts Legacy and more details regarding the recently announced Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition. A reveal for the highly anticipated second part of Final Fantasy VII Remake is also speculated to be featured. With that said, it is highly possible that the event will feature a new look at both Horizon Forbidden West, scheduled to be released on February 18, 2022, and Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin, scheduled to be released on March 18, 2022.
It is good to point out that Naoki Yoshida, the producer behind Final Fantasy XVI, revealed that the game’s main scenario is already completed, so it is indeed possible to imagine that a new trailer, this time featuring a more specific release window as well as new details on its story may be revealed as part of the broadcast.
As we said above, you will be able to watch the new State of Play next October 27 on PlayStation’s official YouTube and Twitch channels.
