PlayStation today announced the date of its next State of Play live streaming event. The new show will air on February 23 and run for 45 minutes. It will focus on updates to third-party partner games and five PlayStation VR2 titles. About 15 minutes of the show will also revolve around Rocksteady’s upcoming title, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League launches on May 26 after a major delay. While Rocksteady previously revealed gameplay for the title, the most recent trailers have been cinematic. Now we supposedly get several minutes of gameplay before the game launches.
Sony’s “third party partners” can mean a number of different teams. Possible candidates include Square Enix, who will release Final Fantasy XVI on PlayStation in June; and Insomniac, who are working on Spider-Man 2, due for release later this year.
In addition, Sony is also showing five PlayStation VR2 titles that will be released later this year. The company previously confirmed that it plans to launch up to 40 games within a month of the launch of the new headset. Since the announcement says the PS VR2 titles are coming “later this year”, that means they probably won’t be part of the launch lineup.
