The next episode of State of Play, Sony’s semi-regular video series for PlayStation news, will air Tuesday, Sept. 24, the company announced Thursday.

The show will begin at 4 p.m. EDT / 1 p.m. PDT and will run for “around 20 minutes,” Sony said in a post on the PlayStation Blog. Viewers will see “new game reveals, new content from PlayStation’s Worldwide Studios, and a host of other updates,” although they shouldn’t hold out hope for any information on Sony’s next-generation plans. The article also teased a “fresh new look” for State of Play.

Sony will livestream the show on Twitch, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook. It will be the third episode of State of Play; the last one aired in early May. Fans haven’t really had a chance to hear updates on PlayStation games since then — after all, Sony skipped E3 this year.

There aren’t any specifics on what we can expect from the episode, but Sept. 24 happens to be the day that Naughty Dog is holding a press event in Los Angeles for The Last of Us Part 2. It’s also been a while since we’ve heard anything about Ghost of Tsushima, the samurai action game from Infamous developer Sucker Punch Productions. And perhaps we’ll get some information on what’s next from Insomniac Games, which recently joined the PlayStation Worldwide Studios team and is currently working on an Oculus Rift-exclusive virtual reality game called Stormland.

Update (Sept. 20): The Last of Us Part 2 will indeed make an appearance on next week’s episode of State of Play. On Friday morning, Naughty Dog tweeted a motion graphic featuring a switchblade and some text pointing viewers to the show.
