Third-party games are one of the focal points of this upcoming event. Although there is no official list of titles, fans have a few theories about what Sony will present, including Final Fantasy XVI and Street Fighter 6.

An announcement for Final Fantasy XVI revealed that more information would come in Spring 2022. However, now that summer is fast approaching, the game has garnered more attention, especially since Final Fantasy XVI producer Naoki Yoshida mentioned a tentative trailer release.

In addition to Square Enix’s hit game, there’s Street Fighter 6, which had a teaser trailer a few months ago. As Sony has stressed that this State of Play will feature third-party partner games, the company will likely be showcasing its latest collaboration with Capcom.

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and Stray by Annapurna Interactive are other possible games for this event. The new Avatar game was one of the exclusives mentioned in Sony’s 2022 Business Segment Briefings, along with several other titles.

PSVR2 games

The next leading component of this week’s State of Play is the new lineup of PlayStation VR2 games, which will see more than 20 first-party and third-party games released in this realistic playstyle.

Horizon: Call of the Mountain could possibly be one of the promoted titles for this event. Fans have been waiting to see more of the popular guerrilla game ever since the teaser trailer was released earlier this year.

Another game that could be included in the event’s PlayStation VR2 reveal is Among Us VR. This new virtual reality experience will be released on VR2 once the headset is available, according to an announcement by Schell Games:

While many players have been eagerly awaiting first-party games like God of War: Ragnarok, it’s unlikely to feature in this PlayStation State of Play. Instead, Sony’s details on the event have emphasized that it will mainly be about their collaborations with third-party developers and PlayStation VR2 games.

This news doesn’t mean these titles won’t be releasing any time soon. For example, the developers have expressed that fans should hold on as the team is working hard on the game and will release it at the right time.

A deeper dive into the PSVR2 hardware

With PSVR2 games taking the spotlight, it’s likely that the hardware itself will have a segment in this event. This next generation of virtual reality has a lot of mechanics to unbox, including the eye-tracking system, 4K HDR display and the new PlayStation VR2 Sense controller.

A release date for this headset may be announced when PlayStation State of Play launches. Hopefully players will finally know when they can get their hands on this exclusive item.

The last thing to expect for next week’s PlayStation State of Play is the debut of the reconstructed PlayStation Plus service. This event is the perfect opportunity for Sony to showcase its new overhaul of the games and tier system. The revamped service still offers the regular benefits, but now offers different versions for players who want a broader collection to play with.

As these new stages will soon be released in America and several other countries, State of Play could explain them even more.

And those are five key things we expect to see in the upcoming State of Play. Check out the relevant links below or explore Twinfinite for more content on PlayStation news, guides and features.
