14 Massive State of Play Announcements That Could Happen Today

The opening months of the yr are typically after we see the massive three console corporations speaking about their platforms’ lineups of upcoming video games. Microsoft went first as soon as once more this yr with its current Developer_Direct showcase, and subsequent in line is Sony. A State of Play has been confirmed for January 31, with the present set to be over 40 minutes lengthy and canopy greater than 15 upcoming titles for 2024 and past. The 2 video games that Sony has confirmed will likely be proven off are Rise of the Ronin and Stellar Blade, however there’s extra loads of room for hypothesis about what different titles may present up- and right here, that’s precisely what we’re going to do.


There’s loads that we don’t find out about PlayStation Studios’ slate of upcoming video games, however of those which were formally introduced, Dying Stranding 2 might be the most important. Unveiled again in 2022, Kojima Productions and Sony have been all however fully silent on the sequel since then, and with info scant on what the following yr of first celebration PS5 releases goes to seem like, this looks as if the precise time for Dying Stranding 2 to resurface. Whether or not or not we’re at some extent the place we’ll get a launch date or window for the sport stays to be seen, however we’d be stunned if we didn’t a minimum of get to see a brand new trailer- one which, in true Kojima vogue, will likely be all types of cryptic. Certain sufficient, outstanding leaker billbil-kun lately claimed that Dying Stranding 2 will certainly be getting a brand new trailer quickly, whereas XboxEra co-founder Nick Baker teased the sport for the State of Play. The previous has additionally mentioned the sport’s full title goes to be revealed as Dying Stranding 2: On the Seashore. 


This one is pretty apparent. Helldivers 2’s launch is correct across the nook, and as a PlayStation Studios sport releasing simply days after the State of Play showcase, it’s virtually undoubtedly going to have some kind of a presence there. How intensive will that presence be? Given the truth that the sport is approaching launch as it’s, we in all probability shouldn’t expect a very meaty exhibiting, however on the similar time, it’s most unlikely that we don’t get a minimum of a brand new trailer for the co-op shooter as Sony prepares for this remaining pre-launch stretch.


The anticipate the Silent Hill 2 remake to rear its head once more has been an extended one, with each Konami and developer Bloober Staff having been unnervingly tight-lipped in regards to the sport since first saying it again in October 2022. Many showcases and occasions have come and gone in that point the place we’ve speculated in regards to the remake’s look, solely to be left upset at its absence. So is that this upcoming State of Play lastly going to be the one? Clearly, we will by no means be too certain, however there’s an excellent probability that the survival horror title does lastly get an replace. On the outset of this yr, Sony confirmed in an official sizzle reel that Silent Hill 2 can be out in 2024, whereas Bloober Staff CEO Piotr Babieno lately additionally confirmed that the sport’s advertising marketing campaign would start “very quickly”, all of which might counsel that it shouldn’t be too lengthy earlier than we lastly see the sport once more. On prime of that, the beforehand talked about leak by recognized insider Nick Baker additionally talked about Silent Hill 2 as one of many video games within the State of Play’s lineup.


In contrast to Silent Hill 2, fellow upcoming Konami remake Steel Gear Stable Delta: Snake Eater appears to be a lot much less shrouded in thriller. After its announcement in Might final yr, the sport acquired one other trailer in October’s Xbox Companion Preview, which implies it wasn’t that way back that we first noticed it. It was, nonetheless, one other sport that was confirmed for a 2024 launch in Sony’s aforementioned sizzle reel earlier this month. With that in thoughts, it wouldn’t be too farfetched to count on a brand new trailer for the sport, maybe one which exhibits precise gameplay footage… and possibly even confirms a launch date? Fingers crossed, I assume.



Sony’s PlayStation Showcase final yr was a reasonably underwhelming one, nevertheless it wasn’t fully devoid of first celebration bulletins. That was the place we bought our first take a look at Harmony, a PvP first particular person shooter set in what was described as a “vibrant” sci-fi universe populated by a “vibrant” solid of characters. After all, on the time, we noticed little greater than a quick CG teaser that didn’t actually present a lot (or something) of the sport itself- so may this State of Play presentation be the place we get our first take a look at precise Harmony gameplay? When it was introduced final yr, the sport was given a 2024 launch window, so until it’s been delayed, a meatier exhibiting would make a variety of sense proper about now. By the way, leaker billbil-kun has claimed {that a} Harmony gameplay reveal is certainly across the nook, and that the sport is outwardly “closely impressed” by Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy universe.


The following couple of months are packed filled with main upcoming releases, and this State of Play looks as if an acceptable stage for a lot of of them to proceed cranking up the hype. Dragon’s Dogma 2 is, after all, set to launch on March 22, so a brand new trailer for the open world motion RPG wouldn’t be stunning within the slightest. Can we count on one thing greater than that although? Capcom loves placing out demos of its video games forward of launch, so may a demo for Dragon’s Dogma 2 be introduced on the upcoming State of Play? One can hope, a minimum of.


Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth_03

Closing Fantasy 7 Rebirth might be the most important launch of all of 2024 (of the video games that we all know of thus far, on the very least), and with the sport due out in lower than a month’s time, pleasure surrounding it’s persevering with to construct. Sq. Enix has stored up a wholesome cadence of recent trailers and gameplay showings in current weeks and months, and it could very a lot be in character for the corporate to premiere one other trailer proper about now.


Closing Fantasy 7 Rebirth is likely to be what most FF followers are considering of proper now, however the sequence has different irons within the fireplace as effectively. Closing Fantasy 16’s second growth, The Rising Tide, is about so as to add a brand new location to the motion RPG and eventually deliver Leviathan into the combo, and with a confirmed launch window of Spring 2024, this looks as if the precise time to present us one other take a look at the DLC, and maybe even reveal a precise launch date.


until dawn

Till just some days in the past, there would have been completely no purpose to count on Supermassive Video games’ practically decade-old horror title to indicate up on the upcoming State of Play, however in line with leaks, it’s very a lot on the playing cards. Leaker billbil-kun has claimed that Till Daybreak goes to be introduced for PS5 and PC quickly, although it’s unclear proper now whether or not that’ll be within the type of a remake or a remaster. Given the truth that Sony lately confirmed that an Till Daybreak film had entered improvement, we wouldn’t be completely stunned if the corporate did certainly resolve to deliver the sport again into the limelight.


BioShock creator Ken Levine’s studio Ghost Story Video games unveiled its debut venture, first particular person shooter Judas, again in December 2022, and given the pedigree of the builders and the way promising that first trailer regarded, the sport, unsurprisingly, turned various heads. Since then, nonetheless, we’ve seen subsequent to nothing of Judas, and with Take-Two Interactive having beforehand confirmed that it’s speculated to be out earlier than April 2025, one has to wonder if we’ll be seeing the sport once more within the close to future. Certain sufficient, the previously-mentioned leak by recognized insider Nick Baker has recommended that Judas will certainly have a presence on the State of Play.


Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree

As lately as December, FromSoftware mentioned that Elden Ring’s a lot anticipated growth was nonetheless a way off from launch– so why precisely are we anticipating a exhibiting on the imminent State of Play? Properly, current developments have recommended that the DLC may truly be nearer than anticipated. In December, a list for Elden Ring-themed controllers made by Thrustmaster was noticed on-line, and that itemizing, apparently sufficient, claimed that the controller in query can be out in February alongside Shadow of the Erdtree. On prime of that, Elden Ring’s Steam web page has additionally seen some current exercise, with information and updates having been added to the backend’s paid DLC part. Whether or not or not Shadow of the Erdtree’s launch is definitely imminent stays to be seen, however may we a minimum of see a trailer for it on the State of Play? It doesn’t appear to be completely out of the query, on the very least.


Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is a couple of months previous now, however Insomniac Video games apparently nonetheless has issues within the works for the action-adventure title. For starters, the developer has beforehand confirmed {that a} New Sport Plus Mode is about to reach in early 2024, and if that’s continuing as deliberate, a shadow drop on the State of Play wouldn’t be unlikely within the slightest. Past that, whether or not there’s any unannounced DLC that we could possibly be listening to about as well- that’s completely up for hypothesis, at this level, however one would definitely hope.


Sonic Frontiers_12

Again in October, allegedly leaked Sega paperwork claimed {that a} new mainline Sonic sport can be out someday in 2024, and up to date developments have fanned these flames. Extra particularly, insider Nick Baker’s cryptic tease for the State of Play has pointed to a brand new Sonic announcement, saying, “Sonic will dwell within the shadow of his technology”. Now, does that imply we’re getting a Sonic Generations remaster or remake? And what half precisely is sweet previous Shadow the Hedgehog going to play right here?


4A Video games has talked about a couple of occasions since Metro Exodus’ launch that it’s engaged on the sequence’ subsequent sport, and Baker’s aforementioned tweet has recommended that the following Metro is certainly going to be introduced on the State of Play. Curiously, nonetheless, it may not come within the kind you’d count on. One other leaker, Twitter person @Kurakasis, has claimed that the sport, titled Metro Awakening, goes to be a VR-exclusive sport. With Sony having confirmed that PS VR2 bulletins may even be included within the State of Play, may a mainline VR Metro title function the showpiece announcement for the platform on the occasion?
