Earlier in the week, Sony revealed that date for their next State of Play live stream, as the famed publisher is currently scheduled to reveal more information about some of their upcoming titles at 1 PM Pacific, 4 PM Eastern on Tuesday, September 24. It was also revealed that The Last of Us Part II will be shown during the stream, which, according to Sony, will last roughly 20 minutes.

The official details for September 24’s State of Play have been listed on PlayStation’s blog, and you can check them out below.

“We’re preparing a pretty hefty show, weighing in at around 20 minutes and sporting a fresh new look. And we’ll have some great news to share with you, including new game reveals, new content from PlayStation’s Worldwide Studios, and a host of other updates. Should be fun!”

Now that we’re just two days away from seeing more from The Last of Us Part II, developer Naughty Dog has continued to tease the State of Play stream across social media. On Saturday, the devs uploaded a video of a hammer with the caption “watch your backs.” Then, on Sunday, the creators of TLOU Part II uploaded another video which featured the following caption: “they should be terrified of you.” You can check both of them out below.

As of this writing, we don’t know how much of the 20-minute live stream will be taken up by The Last of Us Part II, but because it’s the only game that’s been announced for next State of Play, it’s pretty safe to assume that a large chunk of Sony’s next stream will be dedicated to what’s arguably their most anticipated exclusive game of all-time.

Of course, most are expecting a release date for The Last of Us Part II to be included in the State of Play live stream, and, as of right now, we don’t know if Sony will decide to reveal it on Tuesday’s show. However, it does appear that the release date has been leaked by a retailer named Softridge, who listed a release date of February 28. 2020. They also revealed that there will be three different editions of The Last of Us Part II: Standard Edition, Special Edition, and Collector’s Edition. But, since being listed and discovered, the retailer has pulled the listing.

So, if Sony does decide to include the release date for The Last of Us Part II, don’t be surprised if/when they reveal that it’ll hit the PlayStation 4 in February of next year.
