We already know that The Last of Us Part II media event is scheduled for next week on Tuesday 24th September and it now looks like some of that presention will be broadcast live across the internet as Sony have scheduled a “Live Broadcast” State of Play for the same time.

According to the PlayStation Blog the show is going to around 20 minutes long and well be a little different to previous broadcasts. However, temper your expectations, there will not be any news about the PlayStation 5.
We’re preparing a pretty hefty show, weighing in at around 20 minutes and sporting a fresh new look. And we’ll have some great news to share with you, including new game reveals, new content from PlayStation’s Worldwide Studios, and a host of other updates. Should be fun!
Oh, and it probably bears mentioning: Don’t expect any updates related to our next-gen plans in this episode
You will be able to watch live on, , , and
The Last of Us Part II media event may reveal a release date for the game, which is rumoured to be around February 2020. In April this year it was revealed that motion capture for the game’s two lead characters played by Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker had wrapped, marking the end of all cinematic shoots, and in June this year Ashley seemed to slip and reveal the release date of the game as February 2020.
There are also completely unsubstantiated rumours of a multiplayer beta for the game.
The post on the PlayStation Blog does mention new game reveals next Tuesday which is exciting, but they probably won’t be huge AAA games as that would take the focus away from The Last of Us Part II. Equally I wouldn’t expect anything for Ghost of Tsushima as the graphics for that are said to be stunning, but that’s almost certainly because it’s a PS5 game.
