A new PlayStation State of Play is rumoured to take place this week, according to two leakers. The report comes from both Shpeshal Nick of XboxEra and Nate The Hate, who have decent track records of industry leaks. Nick also leaked what appears to be the lineup of announcements that Sony plans to make at the event including Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, a remaster/remake of Sonic Generations and a new Metro game, among others.
It’s believed that Nick might’ve acquired this information after PlayStation uploaded the State of Play event to YouTube recently (hidden, of course), though we recommend taking that with a pinch of salt. However, his leaked contents do seem within the realm of possibility, especially with Final Fantasy VII Rebirth launching soon – a demo is expected to drop with the announcement this week.
Deciphering Nick’s cryptic tweet/post, fans discovered these games potentially being showcased at the State of Play:
- Death Stranding 2 (On The Beach)
- Rise of the Ronin
- Final Fantasy VII Rebirth
- Sonic Generations Remake/Remaster
- Silent Hill 2
- New Metro Game
- Until Dawn Remaster
A few of these make sense. The “On The Beach” subtitle for Death Stranding 2 was leaked last week, teasing more information coming soon. An Until Dawn remaster was also leaked ahead of schedule, which might be Sony’s way of lining up its release with the upcoming movie adaptation. The new Metro game is a nice surprise, though.
On the 31st (roughly), Ronins will Rise, we’ll die stranded, have a rebirth and Kojima will fulfil his dream. Sonic will live in the shadow of his generation while the hills will remain silent until the dawn when you’ll need to catch the metro. Just don’t be a Judas about it.

The rest are expected at this point. Both Final Fantasy VII Rebirth and Rise of the Ronin (as PS5 exclusives) are very close to release so the marketing is finally ramping up. The Silent Hill 2 remake from Bloober Team has yet to receive an official release date so now might be the right time. It’s also been a while since we’ve heard anything about Judas, the spirital successor to BioShock created by Ken Levine.
