According to Sony, the show will be around 20 minutes long. The October State of Play will focus on announcements and updates for third-party releases in particular, for both the PlayStation 4 and PS5. It will have new looks at previously announced games, as well as a few reveals from PlayStation partners around the world.

With previous presentations highlighting Sony’s big upcoming games like Horizon Forbidden West and God of War: Ragnarok, I don’t think it’s too surprising to see a more third-party focus here. As for what it entails outside of first-party games, well, there are a lot of possibilities.

The one everyone will probably start clamoring for is Final Fantasy XVI. We haven’t seen much of it recently, and the timing seems about right for a new update. There are still some big third-party games set to debut between now and year’s end too, like Call of Duty: Vanguard. And there are always a few indies that Sony likes to highlight, like Sifu.

This presentation might help set the road ahead for Sony. We’ll see what their third-party pals have on deck on Oct. 27.
