The next PlayStation State of Play livestream is Wednesday and it will offer a 20-minute look at third-party games for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.

PlayStation Blog on Friday morning said the broadcast “will share new looks at previously announced games,” although it will also include “a few reveals from our partners.”

State of Play will air Wednesday, Oct. 27 at 2 p.m. PDT/5 p.m. EDT and the broadcast is available on PlayStation’s Twitch and YouTube channels. As far as which games or publishers will be featured, Sony didn’t specify. But near term, Ubisoft’s Riders Republic launches the next day, and Call of Duty: Vanguard arrives Nov. 5.

Rockstar Games also just announced that Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy, a remaster of GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas, will launch Nov. 11, with Grand Theft Auto 3 — The Definitive Edition available as a stand-alone title on PlayStation Now on Dec. 7.

Grand Theft Auto 5, enhanced and updated for the new generation of consoles, is also due to launch in March, after a February stacked with launches that include Elden Ring, Saints Row and Sifu.

Sony last aired a State of Play broadcast in July, which also gave a 20-minute look at third-party games for both consoles. Sony followed that in early September with PlayStation Showcase, a much longer reveal of games launching through the holidays and early winter.
