Historically, this is the week of E3 but, with the 2022 edition canceled due to the pandemic, the big video game publishers are hosting their own events to announce their big news. Sony’s State of Play, which we’ve encountered frequently throughout the year, is one of them.
Sony’s PlayStation show kicked off Thursday on Twitch and YouTube, with announcements involving both Sony’s third-party developers and games in development for PlayStation VR2, such as Horizon Forbidden West’s virtual reality spinoff, Horizon Call of the Mountain. Did you miss the event? Fear not, here you will find all the announcements and trailers that Sony has released for its Playstation ecosystem.
