10 games will get new updates and announcements

Sony has been a bit quiet so far in 2021 about the future of the PS5, but thats set to change on Thursday when the company holds its next State of Play event.
According to a post that just went live on the PlayStation Blog
, Sony says the event will last for approximately 30 minutes and will contain updates and announcements for 10 upcoming third-party and indie games on both PS4 and PS5. 
Disappointingly, Sony says there wont be any new PlayStation hardware or business-focused updates in this show (which is a shame as the company just announced that its working on the PSVR 2) nor does it mention first-party games like Horizon Forbidden West or the upcoming God of War in the event description, either.
The event is scheduled to start on Thursday, February 25 at 2pm PST / 5pm EST / 10pm GMT, and Sony says that youll be able to watch a live stream on its official Twitch
and YouTube
channels. Well also embed the live stream video on TechRadar.
The event could be a great opportunity for Sony to address PlayStation Nation – its fan base that have both shown immense interest in the PS5 and, simultaneously, great disdain for the companys lack of available consoles. PS5 restock has been extremely limited. (See our Where to Buy a PS5 guide if you’re still looking.)
And yet, based on the description, it doesnt seem like Sony is going to mention the PS5 stock shortages or scalpers, instead focusing on building up the hype for the next round of third-party titles and indie games coming to the console later this year. 
Admittedly, while the latter might sound selfish, its also something that Sony desperately needs right now. The slate of upcoming PS5 titles looks strong for the next two months, but after that begins to drop off precipitously. 
Sonys State of Play event announcement follows today’s news that Gran Turismo 7 would be delayed and that the company would release Ratchet & Clank free-of-charge for its upcoming Play at Home event that starts on March 1.
