As 2019 comes to a close, and the game releases slow to a trickle, all eyes are on the Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo to start giving us a taste of what’s to come next year. It seems that Sony is finally breaking the silence with a new State of Play stream that will be taking place next week.

The company is once again promising a big show, reportedly announcing that the livestream will feature new game reveals, gameplay footage from previously announced titles, release date reveals, and more. According to the PlayStation Blog, the event will clock in at around 20 minutes. Just don’t expect any news about the PlayStation 5. Sony has already made it clear that we won’t be seeing anything about the new console anytime soon. Most likely next year’s E3 event will be centered around the next generation of gaming from both Microsoft and PlayStation.

The big question is whether Sony can deliver, or if the State of Play will be just another disappointing event. This year has not been very good to PlayStation, a company that had seemingly lost a lot of its momentum from previous years. All of the State of Play addresses thus far have been lackluster, with no real major announcements from the company. Mostly, there has just been a lot of focus on The Last of Us Part 2, which will probably make its way into the show again somehow.

One of the biggest games that has been noticeably absent from any Sony event since its initial reveal is the upcoming action-adventure game Ghost of Tsushima, developed by Sucker Punch Productions. The game is definitely a highly anticipated titles, and PlayStation fans have been eagerly awaiting any news about it. Hopefully, with this being the last State of Play stream of the year, we’ll finally get to see some new details about the project, and maybe–that’s a very big maybe–a release date.

The event is set to take place on December 10, just two days before The Game Awards on December 12. The Game Awards is yet another major platform for new trailers and video game reveals, and so far, Geoff Keighley has stated that there will be at least 10 new games announced at the show. The next couple of weeks are going to be awesome for gaming fans, as we are finally going to get a glimpse of next year’s already busy release schedule. Make sure to tune into the streams to catch all of the announcements as they happen live.
