Sony will host another State of Play stream this Thursday, June 8. The presentation will focus on indie and third-party titles, including a nine-minute dive into Deathloop.
State of Play streams are the equivalent of Sony’s Nintendo Direct. The company tends to run one presentation every month or two, mostly built around an upcoming release. Sony has previously hosted streams focused on Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and Forbidden Horizon in the West.
The stream begins at 2pm Pacific Time on June 8 and will run for 30 minutes. Fans will be able to watch it on Sony’s Twitch and YouTube channels.
Deathloop, an upcoming PlayStation exclusive from Arkane Studios, will get the attention this time. A blog post from Sony’s website confirms that we’ll see an expanded series from the shooter that showcases both the stealthy and all-out action components of the game. The Deathloop part of the stream will be nine minutes long.
As for the rest of the stream, Sony says it will specifically focus on indies and third-party games, but didn’t say what games we might see. Upcoming PlayStation releases that fit the bill include Kena: Bridge of Spirits and Solar ash.
However, those hoping to hear from some of Sony’s big, first-party releases should lower their expectations. The company says that the show will not feature news of a new PS VR, a recently delayed God of War sequel, or Forbidden Horizon in the West. The second omission is a bit surprising, given that the game still doesn’t have a release date, despite the fact that it was scheduled to launch this holiday season.
