It's not all good news, however, as fans waiting for a major first-party release from PlayStation are going to have to wait a little longer with the official PlayStation announcement post regarding the new State of play stating that the showcase will "have some exciting reveals from our third-party partners, plus a sneak peek at several games in development for PlayStation VR2."

This means that the highly anticipated God of War Ragnarök will not be appearing on this State of Play, despite all indications still pointing to a 2022 release date for the title.

This doesn't completely rule out games like Final Fantasy XVI or even Final Fantasy VII Remake being shown at the event, though the use of the word "reveal" does make it sound like new projects we've yet to see will be making their debut instead.
