​The Next PlayStation Livestream Focuses On ‘MediEvil’ And A New Game

Sony has announced plans for another PlayStation State Of Play, the company's Nintendo Direct-style livestream. Scheduled for 11pm on May 9, the broadcast will focus on the MediEvil Remake and it will also feature the first look at a new game.

In a post on the PlayStation Blog, social media director Sid Shurman says that the stream will be briefer than the last, only lasting around ten minutes. But it will focus on a few titles, whereas the last offered up a broad spread of game news.

The main focus of the stream will be the first look at the MediEvil Remake due out this year. First announced back in October 2018, we've not yet seen anything proper of the remake. The first MediEvil was first released back in 1998 for the original PlayStation so it could be quite a dramatic overhaul.

Shurman also announced that there would be a new game announced, although that was all he would say. Fingers crossed for a new Crimson Skies... Look, I'll always request a new Crimson Skies.

While Shurman said there would also be other updates on upcoming PS4 games, he made clear not to "expect any updates relating to our next-generation plans this time".

We're still holding out hope of an E3 broadcast - Sony has already said that it will not be holding a conference at E3 this year, but it has said nothing about releasing a State of Play. There have been hints and rumours of a new Death Stranding trailer and a Last of Us: Part 2 update in the pipeline, so if they're not going to appear in Thursday's stream an E3 stream seems likely.

What new game are you hoping will be announced on Thursday? Let us know on Facebook and Twitter.
