Sony promises virtual reality titles at PlayStation’s State of Play

Sony is hosting a 30-minute broadcast to showcase games coming to PlayStation consoles and the forthcoming PS VR2, their second iteration of a virtual reality headset. The company will stream the series of announcements on Twitch and YouTube starting 6 p.m. Eastern on Thursday.

Sony’s start-of-summer broadcast is the first in a two-week series of prepared announcements and premieres orchestrated by publishers to build hype around their upcoming titles. The news conferences continue next week with the Summer Game Fest on Thursday, June 9 at 2 p.m. Eastern time.

It’s been two months since Sony’s last showcase. Before the last State of Play in March, the company announced it would be suspending sales of PlayStation consoles and games in Russia in light of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The rest of the showcase in March didn’t include any updates about Sony’s next-generation virtual reality headset and most of the games showcased had previously been shown.

On Thursday, Sony is expected to reveal more gameplay from “Horizon Call of the Mountain,” a virtual reality spinoff of the Horizon franchise that appears to be a tentpole release for the company’s upcoming PS VR2. Sony has not published a release date or price tag for the PS VR2 yet. The first PlayStation VR headset sold for $400 when Sony released the device in 2016.
