If the rumours are to be believed, there could be several exciting announcements in the half-hour broadcast.
On Twitter, RalphsValve wrote that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II will feature an exclusive PlayStation VR2 experience, which would be a standalone mode, and it would also be free. In it, you control a Tier-1 operator. The exciting thing is that it’s supposed to be released at the same time as PlayStation VR2… so the question has to be asked: is Sony’s next-generation virtual reality device coming at the end of 2022? After all, Activision Blizzard has already confirmed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, in development at Infinity Ward, will be released on October 28…
And then Bryan Paul, the host of PSVR Without Parole, in the latest episode of GamesCast claimed that Supermassive Games (known for Until Dawn, The Dark Pictures Anthology, and The Quarry) had been signed by Sony to make the FIRST Killzone game for PlayStation VR. However, after years of development, Sony wasn’t happy with the progress, so in 2019, they started the project all over again internally. It is now being developed for the PlayStation VR2 and could reportedly be among the launch titles for the new headset. (There will be more than 20 first- and third-party games in the launch lineup.) Cyan is bringing Firmament to PSVR2, and Coatsink and nDreams are also putting something together for the new headset.
Then, VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb wrote on Twitter that he thinks State of Play will be where Capcom will show off Street Fighter 6 since the previous instalment came out for PlayStation 4 and PC. Since Capcom is an external partner, it would make sense for the Japanese publisher to show off more of its fighting game, whose logo, let’s just say, was slapped together.
All of this is not yet official, except that State of Play starts at 3 PM Pacific on June 2.
