Amidst a flurry of rumors, speculation intensifies about the imminent announcement of a new State of Play or PlayStation Showcase. Gaining significant traction is the involvement of renowned insider “Shinobi602”. This figure is credited with several major leaks in the past, such as those concerning “Horizon Zero Dawn” (a whole six months prior to its official reveal) and “The Last of Us Part 2.”
Shinobi602 recently joined a discussion on the Resetera forum, addressing the perceived communication void from Sony Interactive Entertainment. Notably, the insider cryptically commented, “Well, this week is over now.” This has led many to interpret that an announcement regarding the event, as well as its scheduled date, could be unveiled this week.
If Sony does announce a PlayStation Showcase or State of Play, they face the challenge of surpassing their last event, which fell short of fan expectations. The previous gathering was critiqued for focusing predominantly on third-party and indie games, with “Marvel’s Spider-Man 2” being the sole major first-party reveal. Stay tuned to us as we monitor if this anticipated announcement becomes a reality. Given Shinobi602’s track record, there’s a good chance something substantial is on the horizon.
