It was only on March 9, 2022 that Sony aired the last episode of the State of Play format. These were mainly titles from Japanese publishers. The focus was, for example, on the presentation of the new cooperative mode Returnal, but also on a new trailer for Ghostwire: Tokyo or the first presentation of the new game Exoprimal, which will be released in 2023.
Just a few days later, this Monday, Sony is now announcing the next very focused State of Play edition, which is scheduled to air this Thursday, March 17, 2022 at 10:00pm PT. This time, no other game takes center stage than the highly anticipated Hogwarts Legacy, and the first game will be revealed.
Sony is proud to present this special Hogwarts Legacy State of the Game episode in cooperation with Avalanche Software and Warner Bros. Games, and is excited to bring new footage and additional information to waiting fans.

The fact that Hogwarts Legacy not only appeals to a very young audience is also shown in the comment below the trailer, which is by far the most liked: “What everyone dreamed of in their own childhood.” Fans from the past are now around 30 years old. So if Hogwarts Legacy turns out to be a good game, the potential target group is gigantic and could allow many fans of the legendary wizarding franchise to take a little virtual time travel to their own past.

In the game, you take on the role of an apprentice wizard experiencing Hogwarts in the year 1800. The protagonist holds the key to an ancient secret that threatens to destroy the entire wizarding world. However, of course, you will find numerous protagonists; As a Harry Potter fan, you have surely heard the names of some of them.
Thursday’s upcoming edition of State of Play, which will take an in-depth look at Hogwarts Legacy, is expected to last around 20 minutes and feature over 14 minutes of gameplay, which was captured on PlayStation 5.
