The PS5 games line-up was revealed during Sony’s official reveal event on June 11, and boy, we’re impressed. The live stream may have unveiled the PlayStation 5’s design, but ultimately it’s the PS5 games that’ll sell us on the machine, and Sony has made a solid start. The only caveat is that the launch period itself might be a little light, with the likes of Horizon Forbidden West not releasing until 2021.
While we didn’t get official confirmation of the PS5 price during the event, Sony put on one heck of a next-gen showcase in its hour-long gameplay footage presentation that Microsoft has yet to rival for the Xbox Series X. And since then, more multiformat PS5 games have been revealed, such as FIFA 21 and Madden 21.
So we’ve compiled an extensive list of all the PS5 games that have been confirmed so far, including both first and third-party titles, alongside PS5 games that we expect (and hope) to see in the future.
Below, we’ve re-capped the PS5 game reveal event so you can see a montage of epic gameplay video in under three minutes.
Every PS5 game and PS5 exclusive confirmed
Sony showcased its PS5 game line-up for the first time on June 11, during the Future of Gaming event. The event showcased 26 new PS5 games and trailers, from both first-party and third-party studios.
You can check out all the announced titles below, along with all other confirmed PS5 games, such as FIFA 21 and Control. We’ll be sure to update these entries as more information on each of these games becomes available.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales
Initially we thought that Spider-Man Miles Morales was a sequel to Insomniac’s critically-acclaimed Spider-Man, then it seemed like the game was an expanded remaster of the original game. Now, it’s been confirmed that Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a standalone title similar to Uncharted: Lost Legacy, acting more like a spin-off than a fully-fledged sequel – a kind of 1.5 iteration sitting in the middle.
Regardless, we’re excited. While we don’t know too much about the game, you should be able fast-travel across New York almost instantly thanks to the PS5 SSD, while the haptic feedback in the PS5 DualSense controller should enhance the feel of the combat.
Gran Turismo 7
It wouldn’t be a proper PlayStation game launch event without a tease of a new Gran Turismo game – and it wouldn’t be a proper Gran Turismo tease if it didn’t leave us scratching our heads as to whether or not this would be a launch game. There was no release date attached to this forthcoming PS5 game.
No matter. We can tell you that developer Polyphony Digital is working on its next-gen vision for the racing sim series, and its first numbered GT racing game since GT6 in 2013. Unlike some other PS5 trailers shown during Sony’s reveal event, we got to see in-game footage from behind the steering wheel. You’ll think it looks either magnificent or magnificently boring depending on your view of the franchise.
Gearbox and Counterplay Games revealed Godfall at last December’s Video Game Awards, which looked like a hack-and-slash Destiny, or a Borderlands with swords. Surprise! The gameplay trailer we saw at Sony’s PS5 event confirmed our suspicions, with players bashing and slashing big monsters in gloriously ornate armor sets. Those are called Valorplates, because of course they are, and you’ll swap between them to ‘transform … into unstoppable masters of melee combat’ on your climb through elemental realms to kill the mad god Macros. Godfall, indeed. This solo or co-op PvE game looks extra in all the right mindless ways.
Horizon Forbidden West
Aloy returns in another graphically stunning adventure, which will see the future warrior take on robotic dinosaurs across America in the PS5 sequel Horizon Forbidden West. In terms of gameplay, it seems like a similar set-up to the previous game, an open-world epic across glistening beaches and vertigo-inducing mountains. It was easily the most visually-arresting game during the PS5 showcase – perhaps the only game that looked like a true generational leap from what we’ve seen previously on the PS4 and PS4 Pro.
You just can’t keep a good Mudoken down. The next game in the Oddworld series is, again, a remake: while the 2014 Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty remade the original Oddworld: Abe’s Oddyssey, the next title in the series, Oddworld: Soulstorm, remakes its sequel, Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus. This makes it the perfect place for new players to pick up: Soulstorm follows the series protagonist, Abe, who has just stirred himself from worker bee complacency to lead an uprising with his fellow Mudokens against their exploitative capitalist overlords, the Glukkons. Truly a game for our times.
Resident Evil 8: Village
While the series has focussed on glossy third-person remakes of classic survival horror adventures recently in the shape of Resident Evil 2 and 3, the future of the mainline series is firmly first-person. Resident Evil 8: Village is coming to the PS5, and looks as if it will feature a return to the creepy European setting of the series’ high-point, Resident Evil 4. From werewolf-like monsters to the return of Chris Redfield, it looks as terrifying as it is beautiful.
It’s been more than ten years since Demon’s Souls frustrated us to no end on PS3, and its ruthlessly difficult combat is back for the PS5 launch window. It’s being built from the ground up by Japan Studio and Bluepoint Games. You know, just in case you didn’t think 2020 was hard enough, this classic will make you want to throw that brand new PS5 DualSense controller across the room in anger. Bring on the incessant trial-and-error combat!
Grand Theft Auto 5 enhanced
Third time’s a charm for Rockstar Games, which is set to bring GTA 5 to the PlayStation 5 in what the company is calling a “new and enhanced” edition. What exactly is new or enhanced remains to be seen or what this means for the still-rumored GTA 6 release date. We’d like to finally see some single-player DLC added, if possible. What we do know is that the PS5 version will come in 2021, and those still playing the GTA Online portion of the game on PS4 will get $1 million of in-game cash every month until its PS5 release.
The Project Athia PS5 trailer explicitly stating that the game was “designed exclusively for PS5” (although it’s also coming to the PC, we subsequently found out). No matter, this all-new IP is from Square-Enix, the developers behind the Final Fantasy franchise. Set in a lush fantasy world full of creatures and giant dragons, it looks set to be a large-scale action adventure, melding the magic-wielding elements of the Final Fantasy games with some of the large-scale environments you’d expect from an open-world game. One to watch.
Heart Machine’s follow-up to the lauded (and tough) Hyper Light Drifter is Solar Ash, another personal game “about reflection and progress”, according to a PlayStation Blog post. Given how similar the protagonists look in the old game and the new, perhaps the games are linked – but for now, all we know about Solar Ash is that players will try to stay alive as they travel through a world-swallowing space rift called the Ultravoid. Expect dynamic, gorgeous levels and slick action worthy of the next game by Hyper Light Drifter’s esteemed creators.
Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart
An all-new Ratchet and Clank game, Rift Apart looks like a Pixar film come to life. A colorful, kid-friendly platform-shooter hybrid, it was perhaps the best example of the PS5’s new SSD storage system. Sequences were shown off where the hapless pair were seemingly beaming from detailed world to detailed sci-fi world in an instant, a feat that old-school storage wouldn’t have been capable of with the level of detail on display.
Sackboy: A Big Adventure
No, we didn’t see LittleBigPlanet 4 at the big PS5 game reveal event, but Sony and developer Sumo Digital did offer up a spin-off game featuring your favorite burlap hero from LBP, Sackboy. This is a 3D platformer, instead of a 2.5D game, giving Sony a Super Mario rival at launch with the cuteness of a Yoshi game. Best of all, it appears to include four-player gameplay, as revealed by the end of the trailer.
The NBA 2K21 trailer for PS5 doesn’t contain any cheering fans – so it’s the most realistic depiction of this year’s real-life NBA 2020 season so far. It features NBA Pelicans player Zion Williamson all alone on the court – just him, a basketball and loads of sweat. We’re going to want to see more true gameplay footage from this Visual Concepts-developed game, and we probably will before the PS5 launch date. NBA 2K games usually come out in September, and it’s due for other platforms, meaning if you want the best-looking next-gen version, you may have to wait.
An eclectic mish-mash of Twisted Metal and Fortnite, Destruction AllStars is the kind of bonkers, multiplayer action we can get on board with. Judging from the game’s explosive PS5 trailer, it appears that the battle starts with everyone inside high-powered vehicles, and then the action transitions into a frantic free-for-all as you try to stop your driver from being run over. We’ll be keeping a keen eye on this one.
When Arkane Lyon’s Deathloop was unveiled at E3 2019, its stylized trailer showed players surviving on a chaotic island where everyone’s trying to kill you, over and over, as you try to escape a timeloop. But Sony’s PS5 gameplay reveal gave us a lot more insight and, well, gameplay: in Deathloop, you play Colt, enemy number one on the party island of Blackreef, and you’ll have to sneak and shoot your way past eliminating eight targets that keep you locked in a groovy, nightmarish Groundhog Day. Oh, and fend off an assassin coming to take you down….who might be controlled by another player. The game seems to be shaping up like an entry in Arkane’s lauded Dishonored series that’s been dipped in the 70s with some righteous Saul Bass style to boot. We. Are. Pumped.
Do you like robots? Do you like neon lights? Do you like cats? Then Stray might well be the perfect game for you. From indie darlings Annapurna Interactive, Stray is a futuristic title, where humans seem to have been replaced by robots. Though the trailer wasn’t incredibly clear, it seems you’ll be navigating a Blade Runner style environment as a cat – one of the few living things around, it seems. What exactly you have to do in the game we’re not certain of yet – fingers crossed there’s a dedicated ‘purr’ button.
Goodbye Volcano High
Many of the PS5 games shown off Sony’s reveal event were all about showing off dynamic worlds filled with combat and eyeball-bursting visual effects, but Goodbye Volcano High took a completely different approach. This game looks like it’s going to bring the kind of branching narrative design of Life is Strange or The Walking Dead into the next generation in an inclusive love story about teenage dinosaurs, and in a way, that kind of makes it the highlight of the entire PS5 games event for a certain kind of person.
Returnal comes from the arcade shooter specialists at Housemarque, but it’s a very different kind of experience to Dead Nation or Resogun. This third-person shooter/rogue-like hybrid has you stuck on an alien planet that transforms each time you die, an Edge of Tomorrow-like premise where death is part of the story. You can switch fire modes using the DualSense’s adaptive triggers.
Bugsnax is the innocent-looking PS5 game that takes cues from cutesy titles Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Octodad, with a snack-filled gameplay twist. There’s a good reason its graphics looks like Octodad: Dadliest Catch – it’s made by the developers behind the student-developed hit game.
In Bugsnax, you play as (mostly) bipedal animals and critters that eat food favorites, like fruit and sausages – and oddly become those snacks. Arms will turn into hotdogs and hands will turn into strawberries. It sounds weird… and delicious.
Hitman 3 will be coming to the PS5 in January 2021, and it looks like an amazing way to begin a brand new year with the PlayStation 5. The game will finish up the World of Assassination storyline that began with the series 2016 reboot and the reveal trailer even shows off some gameplay footage from the Dubai level. It’s just as eye-popping as you’d expect it to be, with Agent 47 infiltrating a skyscraper by scaling the outside against the desert backdrop and donning the various disguises the series is known for.
Ghostwire: Tokyo is a new PS5 exclusive from Shinji Mikami and Tango Dreamworks that sees the city of Tokyo 99% depopulated by a paranormal occult event, leaving malevolent spirits to savage the city and its survivors. It has all the hallmarks of modern Japanese horror, down to creepy schoolgirls and faceless umbrella-yielding spirits dressed like they’re going to work at a Neo-Tokyo bank right out of Akira. You play as one of the city’s survivors who develops superpowers of their own during the mysterious paranormal event, so it’s up to you to defend the city against the forces besieging it using all sorts of paranormal abilities.
Jett: The Far Shore
Jett: The Far Shore is a bit of an enigma, but that’s to be expected from Superbrothers, the studio behind Sword and Sworcery. The new game follows Mei, a Jett scout who descends from a massive starship to explore a mythic ocean planet and discover the source of an interstellar transmission – but set to the sound design and compositions of scntfc, the artist behind the soundtracks for Afterparty, Oxenfree, and Jenny leClue, Detectivu, Jett: The Far Shore promises to be an audiovisual (and vibrationally tactile) experience.
Kena: Bridge of the Spirits
An enchanting story-driven adventure game, Kena: Bridge of the Spirits revolves around finding and growing a small team of spirit companions called the Rot. You’ll need to enhance their abilities and find new ways to manipulate the environment in a game which reminds us of the Xbox 360 launch title, Kameo: Elements of Power. The game promises to take full advantage of the next-generation features of the PS5, so hopefully there will be some interesting use of 3D audio and the DualSense controller’s unique functionality.
Little Devil Inside
Little Devil Inside is a cute action RPG with a cartoony style, but there’s not much else we know about it: half the trailer shows a traditional adventurer-dude evading monsters great and small in a variety of environments, while the other half shows a refined older gentleman strolling about town. Mystery! What we do know is the game was successfully Kickstarted…and originally slated to come out in June 2016. After many delays, it’s unclear when exactly it’ll arrive on PS5 – but it will be a timed exclusive on the new console before heading to PS4 and PC.
This is one PS5 game you won’t have to buy – it’ll comes pre-loaded with the console. Astro, who you may remember from the ‘Playroom VR’ game on PS4, returns in late 2020, although this platform game appears to be stripped on VR innovation. Instead, it acts as a demo of the PS5 DualSense wireless controller, according to Sony. It’ll be cute tech demo and not cost you any money.
Another offering from Capcom, we don’t know very much about Pragmata. The game’s trailer shows a spaceman protecting the world (and a little girl) from otherwordly forces, and the character walking through desolate futuristic streets; it looks like something Hideo Kojima would concoct. It’ll be a while before we get our hands on Pragmata, which will release for PS5 (and Xbox Series X) in 2022.
Shocking no one, EA Sports’ FIFA 21 is coming to PS5. As well as looking nicer, expect faster loading times and smart use of the DualSense controller’s haptic feedback feature. EA’s also boasting of ‘deferred lighting and rendering’ for extra realism.
CD Projekt Red has finally confirmed Cyberpunk 2077 is coming to PS5. Those who buy the PS4 version of the game will be able to play it on PS5 as soon as the next-gen console launches through backwards compatibility – with a free update upgrading the game’s visuals.
In addition, the developer confirmed on Twitter that a “later upgrade to Cyberpunk 2077, taking full advantage of the next-gen hardware, will be available for free” sometime after launch.
EA’s biggest sports series in the US will make it onto PS5 this year. Expect similar upgrades to FIFA, with haptic feedback, faster loading times and unprecedented realism in the look of the players and environments. Spatialized audio is also being touted as a serious upgrade for the next-gen version.
Quantum Error “cosmic-shooter” FPS which sees you playing as Captain Jacob Thomas, a firefighter who is sent alongside his partner to investigate the Monad Quantum Research Facility – which has been attacked by an unknown entity. Coming to both PS4 and PS5 in 2021,
Described as an “indie love letter to classic JRPG”, Cris Tales is a beautifully-drawn action-adventure that allows you to see the path, present and future simultaneously as you travel across a dark, fairy-tale world.
Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One
Sherlock Holmes I presume? There have been many variations of Sherlock Holmes games but this one sees a younger version of the detective traveling to the Mediterranean to uncover the truth behind his mother’s death. The famous detective will be making his PS5 debut in 2021.
Dustborn is a single-player, story-driven, action-adventure that sees you leading a band of misfits across a divided USA on a mission to transport a package. You’ll be able to get your hands on the game when it releases for PS5 (and PS4) in 2021.
Planet Coaster: Console Edition
Planet Coaster: Console Edition will launch as an enhanced version for PS5 and Xbox Series X, as well as PS4 and Xbox One. Planet Coaster is a construction and management sim that lets you create your own amusement park. Initially due to release in “Summer 2020” the game’s release has been pushed to “Holiday 2020”, with the title due to release on all platforms simultaneously.
Remedy Entertainment has confirmed its critically-acclaimed supernatural action-adventure, Control, is coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X. We currently don’t know much more than that but the studio has teased we’ll find out more “at a later date”.
Destiny 2 will be coming to PS5, Bungie has announced. Purchasing the new Beyond Light expansion on PS4 will allow you to download the PS5 version for free, too. With a new expansion coming in 2022, too, this suggests that a full Destiny 3 is still some years away.
Fortnite was confirmed for PS5 in May 2020. It’ll arrive at launch, and players can expect some kind of visual upgrade for the game. In mid-2021, the game will be migrated to Unreal Engine 5, too.
Leyou Technology, parent company of Warframe developer Digital Extremes, has revealed that its free-to-play online sci-fi shooter Warframe will be coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X.
In an earnings report by Leyou Technology, the company stated that it’s “preparing to expand Warframe to more platforms, such as the next-generation consoles and other devices”.
However, there’s no indication of when Warframe will land on PS5 or Xbox Series X.
After gauging interest with a playable teaser, developer THQ Nordic has confirmed that it’s going to remake its 2001 cult classic and bring it to PS5.
Nordic is planning to “stay as faithfully as possible to the original experience” and modernise gameplay mechanics but it’s also promised fans that it’ll be playing close attention to player feedback from the playable teaser; already the developer has said that it’s hearing calls for a “grittier and less colourful world”.
Development is still in the very early stages, though, and we shouldn’t expect to see it in 2020.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
Ubisoft has confirmed that the next chapter in the Assassin’s Creed series is coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla sees players take on the role of Viking raider Eivor, who leads their clan from their native home of Norway to the the shores of Dark Ages England – with a hope of settling for good. But resistance from the Saxons won’t exactly make it easy.
This new Assassin’s Creed game leans more into RPG elements, allowing players to build and management settlements, raid towns for resources, form alliances and even customize their character.
We got our first look at Assassin’s Creed Valhalla gameplay during the Xbox Series X gameplay reveal on May 7, with Ubisoft releasing a new trailer for the upcoming game – but it was a bit of a disappointment.
Rainbow Six Siege
Ubisoft has confirmed to Windows Central that it’s planning for its online tactical shooter, Rainbow Six Siege, to be available on PS5 from launch day (whenever that launch day may be). In order to avoid forcing early next-gen adopters from having to leave their Siege friends behind, Ubisoft has also said that the game will support cross-generational multiplayer, so PS5 owners will still be able to play with their PS4 friends.
People Can Fly has confirmed that its upcoming co-op shooter Outriders will land on both PS5 and Xbox Series X in “Holiday 2020” (AKA between October and December this year) – the same release window that we have for both next-gen consoles.
We don’t know a huge amount about Outriders just yet, but the developer has described it as “a co-op RPG shooter for a new generation set in an original, dark and desperate sci-fi universe”.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum
Announced in March 2019, Daedalic’s Gollum game has now been confirmed for PS5 and Xbox Series X.
The developer confirmed to Edge, that The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will be a “stunning next-gen adventure”. Previously Daedlic confirmed Gollum will release in 2021 for PC and “all relevant console platforms at that time”. Whether the game will be cross-generation (releasing on PS4 and Xbox One also) is still unconfirmed however.
But what will the game actually be about? Gollum is an action-adventure which focuses on the ring-obsessed creature. According to Daedalic, the narrative-driven game”tells Gollum’s story from a perspective never seen before … while staying true to the legendary books.”
Watch Dogs: Legion
First announced at E3 2019, Watch Dogs Legion was initially confirmed for a March 2020 release. However, since then Ubisoft has confirmed that the game will now be delayed into the next financial year which runs from April 2020 to March April 2021, meaning Watch Dogs Legion could see a delay of as little as a month or up to a year.
This delay did, however, make it more likely that Watch Dogs Legion will launch on the PS5 platform. And it will,as the news was officially confirmed by Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot at the end of 2019.
Electronic Arts has confirmed that Battlefield 6 is coming to Xbox Series X and PS5 in 2021.
Speaking to GameSpot, EA said that Battlefield 6 will be “targeting new innovation that will be enabled by next-gen platforms”. We’re still largely in the dark about what Battlefield 6 is about, and whether it’ll also be available on current-gen consoles, but we can’t wait to find out more.
Gods and Monsters
Just like Watch Dogs Legion, Gods and Monsters is another title from Ubisoft announced for PS4 at E3 2019 that’s been delayed from its original early 2020 release into the next financial year.
We could see Gods and Monsters released any time between April 2020 and March 2021 and have now had official confirmation that it’ll be coming to the PS5.
Rainbow Six Quarantine
Rainbow Six Quarantine was first confirmed during Ubisoft’s E3 2019 press conference. It was never given a solid release date but it has since been delayed into the 2020-2021 financial year.
So, while we still don’t know a release date, this delay has pushed the game closer to the PS5 launch. And, according to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot, it’s one of a number of games that’s been officially confirmed for the next-gen console.
It’s been officially confirmed that the latest version of the FIA World Rally Championship will officially hit Xbox Series X and PS5. The racing title will release in September 2020 for PC, Switch, Xbox One and PS4, but will also release on next-gen consoles.
“The introduction of new-generation gaming consoles is a wonderfully exciting step and we’re delighted WRC 9 will be the first rally game to become available to gamers on such platforms,” WRC Promoter managing director Oliver Ciesla said.
According to the game’s website, WRC 9 will feature rallies in Kenya, New Zealand and Japan from the 2020 WRC calendar, alongside over 400km of roads from all 13 scheduled rounds of the 2020 season.
WRC 10 and WRC 11 have also been confirmed.
Dying Light 2
During an interview with Wccftech at E3 2019, developer Techland confirmed Dying Light 2 is set for next-gen consoles.
“Techland always has an eye on the latest new toys!” Techland’s chief technology officer, Pawel Rohleder, said. “To be more specific – yes, the plan since the beginning of production has been to make Dying Light 2 a cross-generation title.”
The racing franchise returns with Dirt 5 (stylized DiRT 5), which was introduced during the Xbox Series X gameplay reveal video and shortly thereafter confirmed to be coming to PS5 (and PS4, actually).
Dirt 5 will surely showcase off-road racing in worldwide locations like previous games in the series. While we don’t know much about the new title, we do know that the top dogs in male voice acting, Nolan North and Troy Baker, will both lend their talents to the game.
Chorus is another game introduced during the Xbox Series X gameplay reveal video, but its official YouTube trailer confirmed it’s also coming to PS5 (and PS4).
The futuristic starfighter shooting game follows Nara as she pilots her sentient ship Forsaken to destroy the cult she once belonged to. Wild! Its visuals evoke the moody red lighting of Control, but the combat feels a lot like Everspace and other arcade-style space shooters.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2
Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 had already been announced for current consoles, but a new trailer was unveiled during the Xbox Series X gameplay reveal event indicating it was coming to that console. When that official trailer hit YouTube, we leanred it’s coming to PS5 as well.
Players take the role of a vampire in the World of Darkness, where undead like yourselves have the capability to entrance, hunt, and gruesomely kill humans. Plots, schemes, and action will change the balance of power in a shifting world. Neat!
The anime-styled hack-and-slash Scarlet Nexus was first revealed during the first Xbox Series X gameplay reveal video in May, but publisher Bandai Namco quickly announced the game would be coming to PS5 as well (and PS4, for that matter).
The futuristic action game follows a humanity besieged by mutants (that look like flower planters with legs, sure) who can only be fought with psychic powers. In other words, the best part of Control in a stylized anime setting. Bandai Namco confirmed this is the first in a new franchise (likely subject to its success) that’s being created by talent from the Tales Of series.
Rumored PS5 games
Hideo Kojima and Sony have been pretty tight-lipped about whether we will be seeing Death Stranding as a PS5 game.
Death Stranding has already launched on the PS4 but in an interview with Wired, Sony’s Mark Cerny hinted that we could be seeing the allusive title on PS5 too.
When asked by Wired about the transition from PS4 to next generation, and how Death Stranding will fit into this process, Cerny gave a “pregnant pause” and a glib smile before a spokesperson interjected that game would be released for PS4.
It’s not exactly a confirmation but Cerny’s response has definitely fuelled speculation that Death Stranding will be a cross-generation release.
Ghost of Tsushima
SuckerPunch’s historical open world adventure will take players back to Feudal Japan, and now we have a much clearer picture of when that will happen. At the Game Awards 2019, SuckerPunch revealed that Ghost of Tsushima will be hitting the streets on July 17, 2020, which means the wait is very nearly over.
That means that the game will arrive ahead of the PS5, but given how beautiful the graphics have been so far, we wouldn’t be surprised if it launches on Sony’s new console. Still, we haven’t heard word one from Sony about whether Ghost of Tsushima will be a PS5 game.
The Last of Us: Part 2
The Last of Us: Part 2 has already released for PS4 but we think it’s a safe assumption that any Sony exclusives released in 2020 (or that were due in 2020) will likely be cross-generation titles.
It would seem slightly odd for Sony to release one of its most eagerly anticipated sequels for just the PS4 at the end of the console’s life cycle. So we think it’s a safe bet to assume Joel and Ellie will make their way to the PS5, instantly becoming one of the best PS5 games.
Bethesda has quite a lot of projects in the works, but the one we seem to know the least about is Starfield. All we know so far is that Starfield is the gaming behemoth’s first new IP for 25 years and will be a single player RPG set in outer space.
Having only seen an announcement trailer, we don’t expect Starfield to release until at least 2020 which means it will land in the prime window to become a PS5 game. Bethesda hasn’t let slip if this will be the case but it seems likely we will be venturing into Bethesda’s galaxy on next generation consoles.
As we said, Bethesda has been pretty busy behind the scenes since E3 2018. Not only is Starfield on the cards, but the long-awaited Elder Scrolls 6 has also been confirmed to be in the works.
Bethesda’s Todd Howard has already stated that The Elder Scrolls 6 won’t be coming out until after Starfield. So it’ll be a while before we venture into Tamriel again, likely on next generation consoles.
Grand Theft Auto 6
Ok, yes, we are being a bit hopeful here – mainly because Grand Theft Auto 6 has not been announced by Rockstar Games. But it’s almost guaranteed that we will see a new installation in the Grand Theft Auto series, and it’s not going to be for a while.
Therefore, it is likely that a release date will fall into the next generation, making GTA 6 a PS5 game.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake
Again, Final Fantasy 7 Remake has not been confirmed to be a PS5 game but has released exclusively for PS4 – with an Xbox One and PC release likely in the future .
Given the age of the PS4, and the ambitious nature of the game, Final Fantasy Remake on PS5 doesn’t seem to be out of the question. Expect Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 to land on Sony’s next-gen platform too.
God of War 2
God of War 2 hasn’t officially been confirmed to be in the works – but we hope it is.
Despite Sony remaining tight-lipped on the subject, the success of God of War means a sequel is probably on the way (perhaps another God of War 2?). In addition, Sony Santa Monica has posted job listings for a number of roles across its teams – with one listing clearly citing the God of War reboot.
At this point, it’s most likely that God of War 2 will come to PS5 than the PS4.
