Sony’s State of Play showcase starts now! New PS5 games, Suicide Squad, PS VR2, more

New PS5 games Suicide Squad- Kill the Justice League

It’s time for some new PS5 games and more of what’s on the way for the just-released PS VR2. It has been a busy week in the world of PlayStation to say the least, but we aren’t finished just yet. PlayStation VR 2 finally released this week, the new DualSense Edge pro controller is now live at Amazon and other retailers (here’s our hands-on review), and the next State of Play starts right now (4 p.m. ET) featuring new PS5 games, PS VR2 titles, and more. Head below to follow along.

State of Play – New PS5 games, Suicide Squad, PS VR2, more

While many folks were likely hoping to hear more about Spider-Man 2, which is confirmed for release later this year, and we may indeed get a sneak peek, Sony didn’t mention it when today’s State of Play was announced.

Those honors go to some new PS VR2 titles, third-party reveals, and an in-depth look at the upcoming Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League – the latest game from world famous Arkham series developers Rocksteady and set for release in late May of this year. 

That will bring the total PlayStation VR2 game list up to 45 and we should be getting a complete deep dive into Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, by the sounds of it, but it’s that mention of “hot indie and third-party reveals” that has us most intrigued. That could essentiality mean anything, but here’s to hoping we get at least one major reveal in the AAA space. 

Nonetheless, the speculation ends now as Sony is set to take the stage for its February State of Play event any minute. Stay tuned below for all of the new PS5 games, upcoming PS VR2 releases, and more. We will update this post with all of the full resolution footage ASAP.
