PlayStation 5 games: confirmed and expected

The release of Sony PlayStation 5 will not take place until the end of the year, but the announcements of games for the upcoming PS5 are already sounding. It is known that the console will be backward compatible with most of the catalog of games for PS4, and this is more than 4000 titles. Thus, there will be no problems with what to play immediately after the release, unlike the situation with the release of most consoles.PlayStation has always been known for its fantastic line of exclusive games, but so far we only know of a few confirmed exclusives. Here are all the upcoming PlayStation 5 games that have already been announced, plus those that we expect to hear news about soon.

Games confirmed for PS5:Dying Light 2

The spectacular survival horror game with the open world of Dying Light appeared about five years ago, and its anticipated sequel was one of the first projects announced for the PS5. Like many games on this list, Dying Light 2 will be a cross-platform title, as it was announced not only for the previous PS4 console, but also for the Xbox One.The open world of Dying Light 2 is a great chance for the new console to demonstrate its capabilities. The game takes place 15 years after the events of the first part, and the project itself is more focused on the plot and narrative. Fans will be happy to know that the sequel provides twice as many moves and tricks from parkour, which will help them move faster in the world of urban apocalypse.

< /p>Godfall

< /p>Godfall is an upcoming PS5 game developed by Counterplay Games and released by Gearbox, the company behind the popular Borderlands shooter series. Godfall was, in fact, the very first game confirmed for the new console.

Like Borderlands or Destiny 2, Godfall uses a proven loot shooter formula that combines first-person action with lots of random loot dropouts. Unlike other games in this genre, it will be fought in close combat, which makes it more of a loot slasher that unfolds against the backdrop of fantasy locations. The release of this game is promised this year for PS5 and Windows.

Gods and Monsters

Gods and Monsters was originally planned to be released in early 2020, but the project was postponed. This is one of three confirmed games for the PS5 from Ubisoft, but it is worth clarifying that it will be released on the consoles of the current generation. In general, Gods and Monsters is a kind of mythological interpretation of the idea of Assysin's Creed Odyssey. The task of gamers here is to complete quests and explore the open world, in which the gods live on a par with monsters.


The 2001 RPG Gothic from the developers of THQ Nordic became a cult classic, although it did not receive the fame and recognition that it was worthy of. There were four games in the series, and the last one appeared about ten years ago. Renewed interest in the franchise and the acquisition of THQ IP Gothic led to the remake. Representatives of THQ Nordic have promised to remain faithful to the original as much as possible, so both fans and newcomers to the series will find something for themselves in it. An hour-long playable teaser is already available on Steam, which will help you understand whether you are interested in the idea of the developers.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum

< /p>Gollum has been brought to life in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and the upcoming PS5 game is once again drawing attention to this controversial character. Developers from Daedalic Entertainment reshidi tell us more about the story of Gollum/Smeagola in a multiplatform game, which is scheduled for release in 2021.

So far, not much is known about the project, but Daedalic Entertainment has some experience in working on complex narrative games – they were the ones who adapted Ken Follett's novel The Pillars of Earth. It is interesting to find out how they will be able to turn a small creature, corrupted by the ring of Omnipotence, into the main character of the adventure game.


If you are tired of developers using the same IP for their projects over and over again, the upcoming Outriders may seem interesting to you. Not much is known about this PS5 game yet – only that it is set in a world called Enoch, where mysterious events have given humanity supernatural abilities.

Square Enix and People Can Fly are working on an ambitious title. Genre Outriders is a cooperative shooter that is designed for current and next generation consoles.

Rainbow Six Quarantine

Rainbow Six Quarantine is another confirmed PS5 game from Ubisoft, although its release is currently delayed until 2021. Like the previous titles, this is a team shooter that can be played by up to three players at the same time. It has a lot in common with Rainbow Six Siege, including gameplay and multiple characters.

In fact, the project was inspired by the Outbreak mode from Rainbow Six Siege. Those who are familiar with it will understand what to expect from the new development.

Watch Dogs: Legion

After the announcement at E3 2019, this, the third confirmed game from Ubisoft for the PS5, was supposed to be released in March 2020. The named date has passed, and the delay means that it will most likely appear on the current and next-generation consoles at the same time.

The trailer showed us a unique game that turns each NPC into a potential playable character. Attracting a large number of heroes with different specializations and skills is a completely new element in the series, but it seems that these characters are not worth getting attached to – when they die, they do not respawn, leaving the gameplay forever.


Nacon and KT Racing continue the great WRC racing series for next-generation consoles. In fact, they have already announced that WRC 9, 10 and 11 will be released on the PS5, with the ninth part of the series appearing on PC and consoles as early as September 3.

WRC 9 builds on what made the previous game great, expanding the career mode and increasing opportunities for team upgrades. The project will also have more references to real teams and world championships, plus three new events in Japan, New Zealand and Kenya.

Games expected on PS5The Last of Us Part 2

Although The Last of Us Part 2 has not yet been confirmed for next-gen consoles, it is likely to appear on the PS5 as well. Originally scheduled for May 29, the release seems to be delayed. The longer the delay lasts, the more sense it will make to release the game for both PS5 and PS4. The first draft of the series was one of the most popular exclusives for the PlayStation, so the improved version will be the main commercial argument for the future Sony console.

Horizon Zero Dawn 2

Horizon Zero Dawn was one of the best-selling games for the PS4, with sales exceeding 10 million copies since its release in 2017. Neither Sony nor the developers from Guerilla Games have confirmed any official news about the continuation of Horizon Zero Dawn. Nevertheless, rumors about it persistently circulate in the network.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake

The long-awaited FF7 Remake has already appeared, but many of us would like this project to reach the PlayStation 5. The first episode of the game covers only part of the storyline, so it is almost guaranteed that the rest of the story will be told to us on the new generation consoles. We hope that the progress from the first episode will be carried over to subsequent releases.

Battlefield 6

Battlefield 6 will be released in 2021 or early 2022, but we have not included it in the list of games confirmed for the PS5, as EA representatives themselves have not yet done so.

The two previous Battlefield projects were dedicated to World Wars, so you can expect, that the next title will move in the direction of modern or futuristic battles in the style of Battlefield 4.


The Elder Scrolls and Fallout team is aiming for new horizons with the upcoming single-player sci-fi adventure game Starfield. For the first time, information about it appeared back in 2018, and all we know at the moment is that the title will be released for the next-generation platforms, but no official release for the PS5 has been announced. However, it is quite expected. Almost nothing is known about Starfield yet, so whether it will contain RPG elements or become something little-expected, it is impossible to say. In any case, we are waiting.
