It’s amazing how one ad seemingly can completely change the current dynamic of the gaming industry. Bethesda’s delay redvale And starfieldbut in fairness, opening up a lot of space in the upcoming fall/holiday season. starfield It’s set up as the festive season game, and without it, nothing else is confirmed for November – which is usually the busiest month of the year.
Now, of course, other games will likely fill in those gaps. pokemon scarlet and violet, For example, it will most likely come out in November according to Nintendo’s current schedule, and there are plenty of third-party games with pending release dates. It feels empty, but fortunately, relief may be just around the corner.
Xbox and Bethesda will likely go big at the Xbox and Bethesda Game Show on June 12, while Summer Game Fest starts soon on June 9. Somewhat close. June will likely be full of video game news, and the now barren fall/holiday season may confirm at least some new titles. Of course, wise first party, many are waiting for Nintendo and SonyAnd there were rumors of a State of Play event relatively soon.
Of course, “relatively soon” probably means the first week or so of June. It’s possible, even Sony forgot about an event entirely. It’s been away from the now-cancelled E3 for a while, after all, but it would make sense for Sony to host State of Play within the next few weeks for several reasons.
State of play vs PlayStation 2022 offer
First, it is best to manage expectations. It’s possible that Sony will host State of Play, and possibly even State of Play at the E3 level, but it’s not likely that it will be shown on the PlayStation Showcase. State of Plays can be considered as regular updates, while PlayStation Showcases is Sony’s biggest event. PlayStation Showcase 2020 and 2021 both took place in September, so it makes sense that the next show should be in September as well. No, Sony will likely be showing quite a few games to prepare for the upcoming months in the State of Play, and there are three that are noteworthy: Final Fantasy 16And God of War: RagnarokAnd Hogwarts Legacy.
Final Fantasy 16 trailer ready, but it may need a home
Final Fantasy 16 It might be the best reason for a new play state event. Producer Yoshi-P recently said the following FF16 The trailer was ready to go but can’t quite be shown yet, without giving the reasons behind it. While that’s speculation, Square Enix wants to make sure this was somewhere all eyes could turn, and this gameplay fills the hole nicely. Of course, many have wished and begged to have Final Fantasy 16 to appear in playable condition and it hasn’t happened since it was revealed, but perhaps this development will actually work here for fans.
Yoshi-P also suggested it Final Fantasy 16Its development is nearing completion, so perhaps setting a release date will not be an exaggeration.
It would be wise to set all eyes on God of War: Ragnarok
Speaking of release dates, many players will probably feel uncomfortable about continuing starfielddelay. Many want to know what the next big holiday game is. While God of War: Ragnarok As likely to release in September as it is in November, fans want to know when they can expect it and/or if they can expect it this year. The last update suggested it God of War: Ragnarok It was still on track for 2022, so confirming, or revealing a delay, would be better done sooner rather than later. Either way, this will likely ease some of the anxiety from fans.
Hogwarts Legacy Advertising went hand in hand with PS5
Hogwarts Legacy PS5 is not a timely exclusive like Final Fantasy 16, nor is it a PlayStation exclusive God of War: Ragnarok, but had her own full play state a few months ago. Obviously, there are some marketing agreements between Sony and Warner Bros. for Hogwarts legacy, So more of it makes sense soon. It’ll probably appear more in PlayStation Showcase later this year, but now it’s likely to be the biggest holiday game of the year. Avatar: Pandora’s Border And Hogwarts Legacy Both are big games that rely on large IP addresses that are said to be still on track for this year.
Just as you confirm God of War: RagnarokRelease date (or delay) would reduce anxiety there, and the same could be said Hogwarts Legacy. Now, it is likely that Final Fantasy 16, God of War: RagnarokAnd Hogwarts Legacy They all appear together in the case of play? Mostly not. Is one of these games enough that Sony is ready to go in soon? or not.
Sony You have not yet confirmed your next State of Play event.
