PS5 gamers could be treated to a truckload of announcements in the coming weeks which will leave their jaws on the floor. Sony are rumoured to be holding a major State of Play event in March 2022 which could reveal some long awaited announcements. Among the reveals tipped to take place in the coming weeks is the unveiling of Sony’s rumoured Game Pass rival, which will reportedly combine PS Plus and PlayStation Now into one convenient package as well as offering – among other things – backwards compatibility with PS1, PS2 and PS3 games.
Whispers of a March State of Play have come from Tom Henderson, the leaker known for his GTA 6, Call of Duty and Battlefield leaks, as well as XboxEra’s @Shpeshal_Nick whose past leaks include correctly revealed Final Fantasy 7 Remake was coming to PS Plus as well as leaking the first Elden Ring footage.
Recently Henderson tweeted: “Not a scoop or anything… But surely PlayStation has to be doing *something* in March?
“There’s too many things aligning that suggest it’s probably the case.”
To which @Shpeshal_Nick added: “Happy to add to what’s already out there. Yes, they’ve got a show in March. This is supposed to be ‘the good one'”.
It would stand to reason that a big State of Play is coming up. Sony has already released two of its biggest PS5 games for the year, with Horizon Forbidden West out in February and Gran Turismo 7 out this week.
After that, in terms of exclusives, the PS5 will be getting GhostWire Tokyo later on in March, Forspoken in May and God of War Ragnarok at some point this year (rumoured to be June).
That leaves plenty of gaps in Sony’s 2022 games release schedule which could be filled with announcements in a forthcoming State of Play.
And Henderson, in a thread on Twitter, has speculated what some of these announcements could be.
Among the announcements tipped for the next State of Play are new details on Hogwarts Legacy, an update on Final Fantasy 16, news on several Last of Us projects which reportedly are in the works, the reveal of Sony’s rumoured Game Pass rival codenamed ‘Project Spartacus’ and the unveiling of the long rumoured Resident Evil 4 Remake.
Elsewhere, Henderson tipped more news on God of War Ragnarok, with a State of Play stream potentially revealing the release date for Kratos and Boy’s next adventure, confirmation that the Twisted Metal franchise is returning and more details on PSVR 2 – such as the news on when the release date will be, how much the price is and the launch games.
The latter could be especially interesting as a separate rumour claimed the heavily rumoured Metal Gear Solid Remake will actually be a PSVR 2 launch title which will showcase the headset’s potential and power.
It’s also been claimed that the Metal Gear Solid Remake will be playable in VR and also without a VR headset.
For anyone that has a PS5 but isn’t thinking of picking up the PSVR 2 headset, which was recently revealed in full, that’s great news.
As always with rumours, it’s best to take these claims with a big pinch of salt until official confirmation.
However, if these claims are true then the next few weeks could be a very exciting time to be a PlayStation fan.
