PS5 fans could have another high-profile event to look forward to. Sony only just recently hosted a State of Play broadcast in July, which revealed more on timed PS5 exclusive Deathloop, and now the PlayStation makers could have another big event lined-up. It’s rumoured Sony will be hosting another big PS5 event this summer, and the August event could be the biggest stream so far this year.
It’s rumoured the upcoming PS5 event will reveal more on highly anticipated exclusives Horizon Forbidden West and God of War Ragnarok.
So when is the next Sony PS5 event? What is the rumoured time and date for the next State of Play, and what else could get announced during the event?
Express.co.uk has rounded up everything you need to know about the rumoured August 2021 State of Play…
STATE OF PLAY – WHEN IS THE NEXT SONY PS5 EVENT? DATE AND TIME FOR NEXT STATE OF PLAY?
The next big Sony PS5 event is rumoured to be taking place in just a few weeks time.
According to two leakers, the next Sony PS5 event is scheduled for Thursday August 12.
Roberto Serrano, who correctly leaked the re-arranged date for the Sony Future of Gaming PS5 event last June, said the next Sony event is taking place on August 12 at 10pm UK time.
Earlier this month Serrano tweeted: “Next PlayStation event should be come in August, before the Gamescom 2021, most likely in the first half of next month
“I’ve the date but it’s not confirmed yet (I’ve shared it to few people)
And then in a more recent update Serrano firmed up the date and time for the next Sony event.
Serrano tweeted: “PlayStation Event. August 12, 2021. 2pm PT / 5pm ET / 11pm CEST”.
While on Reddit it was revealed leaker QuimSix, who correctly leaked the July 8 State of Play date, has also said the next PlayStation event is scheduled for August 12 too.
STATE OF PLAY – WHAT COULD BE ANNOUNCED AT NEXT SONY PS5 EVENT?
Serrano has claimed that God of War Ragnarok, Horizon Forbidden West and the PSVR 2 headset could get revealed at the next Sony event.
When tweeting out the rumoured time and date for the next Sony event Serrano added: “Updates on the next God of War, Horizon Forbidden West, the next generation of PlayStation VR and more”.
Sony also seemed to hint that an event over the summer would give updates on this trio of highly anticipated projects.
Setting expectations for the July State of Play in a blog post, Sony said: “This showcase will not include updates on the next God of War, Horizon Forbidden West or the next generation of PlayStation VR. Stay tuned throughout the summer though, as we’ll have more updates soon.”
While Redditor QuimSix has claimed the enhanced and expanded edition of GTA V could feature at the August Sony event.
Timing wise, this would make sense as the next-gen version of GTA 5 is due out in the second half of this year.
While Rockstar Games unveiled the next-gen version of GTA 5 at last year’s June PS5 event, so it would stand to reason it would appear during another Sony broadcast.
