This month’s State of Play will not be centred on a particular game, as was the case with Sony’s last State of Play webcast in February.

There will be “a particular emphasis on promoting amazing titles coming from some of our cherished Japanese publishers” at this State of Play, according to the PlayStation Blog. There will also be updates from other developers throughout the globe, according to Sony.


What if Final Fantasy XVI reappeared in this state of play? We haven’t heard from the PS5 exclusive in a while, and fans of the popular RPG series are certainly anxious to learn more about the next core edition. Also, Sony’s response to Xbox Game Pass may be presented at this event.

You won’t want to miss a thing if it’s anything like the previews suggest it will be. For March 2022’s PlayStation State of Play, we’ve outlined all you need to know about how to watch the live broadcast, as well as what we anticipate to see.

When and where can I see the 2022 PlayStation State of Play?

When: Wednesday, March 9th at 2 PM PT/5 PM ET/10 PM BST PlayStation State of Play for March 2022. In addition to Twitch and YouTube, the live-streamed event will be accessible on a variety of platforms.

If a pre-show does not appear, you may still join the broadcast to make sure you don’t miss anything (we will add an embedded link to this post once ready).

The 20-minute special will include various games developed by Japanese firms rather than a single one for the PlayStation 5, as has been previously reported.

State of Play 2022: What to look forward to

Sony has stated that some of the best Japanese games will be shown at this year’s State of Play event.


That’s led to speculation on the internet that Final Fantasy XVI will make a triumphant comeback in this setting. However, a Persona-related announcement is not out of the question.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the JRPG series, and developer Altus has stated that numerous announcements will be made in 2022 to commemorate it. It’s possible that Persona 4 Golden will be ported to the PS4 or PS5.

Games such as Hogwarts Legacy, Gotham Knights and Forspoken might appear if they are not included. It’s possible Forspoken may be dark for the next several months, as it was recently postponed from May to October.


Project Spartacus, Sony’s Xbox Game Pass competitor, may finally be unveiled at E3 this year. According to a Bloomberg article from last year, it’s scheduled to go live in the spring of 2022, so more information should be forthcoming. In this State of Play, it seems that the subscription service will be explained.
