Sony PlayStation’s Next State of Play Announced to Take Place on June 2: Are We Getting the God of War Ragnarok Release Date?

The State of Play will feature third-party titles as well as upcoming projects for the PS VR2.


Sony has finally announced the next State of Play event set to take place on Thursday this week, June 2. The event will feature nearly 30 minutes of announcements and updates from PlayStation first-party studios as well as third-party partners.

The broadcast will be available on the official PlayStation Youtube channel as well as Twitch on 2 June, 3:30 AM Indian Standard Time.

Additionally, the State of Play event will also feature a sneak peek at several upcoming projects for the PlayStation VR2. The VR2 hardware was revealed earlier this year to much fanfare and there are reportedly a couple of projects already in the works at several prominent studios.

One of the most exciting VR projects that may be in development is the VR component to Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty Modern Warfare II,  which is set for release this October.

PlayStation State of Play To Feature PS VR2 Titles

It has not been confirmed whether heavy hitters such as God of War Ragnarok will be making an appearance at the State of Play but it could be on the cards. Santa Monica has seemingly hinted at the game as being on schedule for release in 2022 which is why it stands to reason that the game might get a release date announcement soon enough.

The game is one of the most high-profile releases from PlayStation Studios and is bound to be a major needle-mover from PlayStation consoles. God of War Ragnarok was revealed alongside the PS5 and was earlier scheduled to come out in 2021.

However, the game’s release was pushed back for a variety of reasons including actor Christopher Judge(Kratos) suffering an injury during the development period. It appears now that the game is all set to come out this year and fans are hoping for more information this Friday.
