Every PS5 Game Confirmed (And Expected) So Far

Sony's next-generation console is launching this year, here's all the PlayStation 5 games you can play.

It's always exciting every time a new console generation comes around, and this time is no different. This year marks the release of both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, and despite the ongoing pandemic disrupting workflow, the two systems are still set for release during the holiday season of 2020. That means there will also need to be a lineup of new games, as some of Sony's major upcoming games are still coming to the PS4 and could skip the PS5, at least at launch, and it's unclear if they're getting PS5 upgrades at all. Sony said in May that it plans to announce the launch lineup for PS5 "soon." Currently, it's still unclear which games will launch alongside Sony's next-generation console this holiday. However, we do know how the console will look. There will actually be two consoles that differ only in whether or not they include a disc drive. You should be able to play the exact same software on both--but any PS4 discs you have won't work on the all-digital version.

As a whole, Sony's PS5 features some exciting new technology, including an SSD that dramatically improves load times, among other elements that promise to improve the fidelity of games. There is also a new DualSense controller that uses haptic feedback to help connect you with games at a deeper level. It's all very exciting, and some of the technology is even beyond what high-end PC systems can do. The technology is being backed up with impressive software, including Epic Games' Unreal Engine 5. This new engine was demonstrated in May 2020 and features new lighting and geometry systems that can make games look more realistic than ever before.

Now Playing: How To Get The Best TV For PS5 And Xbox Series X, Gamescom 2020 Breakdown | Generation Next

In this post we're rounding up all the confirmed PlayStation 5 games, and also denoting the titles that we think, or are assumed to, release on the next-generation system. This list covers the new games that will be released on PlayStation 5. The console will automatically play the "overwhelming majority" the PS4 games you may already own, since it is backward compatible with that console. However, new first-party PS5 games are going to be exclusive to the system rather than get a cross-generational release so as to make full use of the new hardware. This is the case with newly-announced games like Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, which makes use of the system's super-fast SSD to almost instantly teleport into new worlds. More third-party games from companies like EA and Activision will likely come out over time, as well. These will almost certainly include major franchises such as Madden and Call of Duty, and we got our first taste of some of EA's projects during its June EA Play event.

If you're curious about what Microsoft has to offer on its end of the next-generation console race, then be sure to check out our Xbox Series X game roundup after you're done with the PS5 list below.

You can check out all of the confirmed, and presumed, PS5 titles below. We'll continue to update this post in the days, weeks, and months ahead as new and more titles get announced.

For the first time, dual-wielding comes to Assassin's Creed, allowing you to tear up your enemies with a newfound ferocity with axes and even shields if you like.

Astro's Playroom

Astro's Playroom appears to be a sequel or spin-off to the critically acclaimed Astro Bot: Rescue Mission. JapanStudio is developing the game, and while the original Astro Bot was a VR title, the reveal did not show a VR set-up. The reveal was opened with "Press the PS Button" screen, hinting the game makes use of the DualSense controller's functionality. Similar to the Playroom augmented reality mini-game collection on PS4, Astro's Playroom will come preloaded on PS5.

Release Date: PS5 launch title.

Bugsnax

Bugsnax is an adventure game from Octodad developers Young Horses. It's set in a vibrant fantastical world filled with talking anthropomorphic animals, as well as insects that look like real-life food, hence Bugsnax. Get it?

Release Date: PS5 launch title, free with PlayStation Plus subscription

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is the latest game in the popular sub-series of Call of Duty. It's return to a conspiracy-laden story in a single-player campaign. It brings back familiar faces such as Mason, Woods, and Hudson for a globe-trotting story that's set in the 1980s with certain parts going back to 1968 during the Vietnam War. It's a direct sequel to the original Black Ops, and the setup has Soviet Russia and the United States amid tensions of nuclear war playing dangerous spy games with each other through covert ops, which is what you'll be taking part in.

The series's classic multiplayer is also returning with cross generational play and cross progression support. However, little else is known at the moment about what we can expect. A stream detailing more about multiplayer is scheduled for early September, so we should be able to learn more sooner than later.

Black Ops Cold War will be released alongside the PS5, and a cross-gen $70 bundle will let you transfer your PS4 game to the PS5 version if you get the console later.

Release Date: November 12

Control: Ultimate Edition

Remedy Entertainment's critically acclaimed third-person shooter, Control, is heading to next-generation consoles. Subtitled as the Ultimate Edition, the all-inclusive version of the game includes both of its post-release expansions. While you might expect to get the next-generation version for free if you already own the original, there's unfortunately a bit of a catch. The only way to get a free upgrade to next-gen versions of Control is by purchasing the Ultimate Edition on current-generation consoles. Only owners of this new version on Xbox One and PS4 will have their game updated for free to the Xbox Series X and PS5 version respectively.

Release Date: Late 2020 (Digital)

Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077 is launching in September for last-generation consoles and PC before the release of the PS5 during the holiday.

Release Date: 2021

The Pathless

Developer Giant Squid's next game, The Pathless, is coming to the PlayStation 5, and it's published by Annapurna Interactive. You can see the full description below.

Forge a connection with your eagle companion as you hunt corrupted spirits, but be careful not to become the hunted yourself. Explore misty forests full of secrets, solve puzzles in ancient ruins, and test your skill in epic battles. The bond with your eagle and the fate of the world hang in the balance."

Release Date: TBA

Deathloop

Deathloop is the latest game from Arkane Studios, a developer known for their work on the Dishonored series. Set on a mysterious island, it tells the mind-bending story of Colt and Julianna, who are stuck in a loop that repeats each time one dies. As Colt, you're trying to stay alive on the island of Black Reef while everyone's out to kill you, including a player-controlled Julianna that can invade your game. So far, the game looks pretty similar to Dishonored in that there are various firearms, blades, and powers you can use to get the jump on or directly engage enemies. It will come to PS5 as a timed-exclusive.

Release Date: 2021

Demon's Souls Remake

Demon's Souls Remake

For a while, we all wondered what Sony-affiliated developer Bluepoint Games was going to do next. After its work on the fantastic Shadow of the Colossus remaster on PS4, the studio teased that it was working on another remake. In the months that followed, new speculation and rumors stated the next project was a remake of the cult-favorite Demon's Souls--the origin point of FromSoftware's work on the massively popular Soulsborne genre.

If the possibility of a Demon's Souls remake thrilled the core of your being, then know that you can now allow that excitement to finally burst, as it's now officially confirmed: Bluepoint Games is remaking Demon's Souls. With overhauled visuals built from the ground up for PS5, consider this upcoming remake as Sony's redemption for refusing to publish Demon's Souls all those years ago.

Release Date: PS5 launch title.

Destruction Allstars

Destruction Allstars is a competitive action-sports game that has teams of six go head-to-head in vehicular combat, destroying each other's rides. Just because your car explodes, doesn't mean it's over, as you can then sprint around the arena in an attempt to beat the other on-foot racers.

Release Date: February 2020

Dirt 5

Dirt 5
Dirt 5

The next entry in the off-road racing series, Dirt 5, promises to be "bolder and braver than ever before." Very little is known at this stage, but developer Codemasters promises to deliver "new features" and "new innovations" where every race is unique. Veteran voice actors Troy Baker and Nolan North are contributing to the game's career mode.

Release Date: Q4 2020

Destiny 2

Bungie's shared-world shooter, Destiny 2, is headed to the PlayStation 5. However, that's all that's been confirmed so far--there is no word yet on a release date or any details on how the game will leverage the power of next-generation consoles.

Release Date: TBA

Doom Eternal & Elder Scrolls Online

Bethesda confirmed that both Doom Eternal and The Elder Scrolls Online will be coming to next-generation consoles, and owning either of them on the current generation will let you upgrade for free. According to the announcement, both games will support backward compatibility when the new consoles launch, which should tide you over until the next-gen native versions launch. The company promises more information on release timing and next-gen enhancements in the coming weeks and months.

Release Date: TBA

Dragon Age 4

BioWare's Dragon Age 4 remains early in development, but the developer confirmed some details about its next title in the franchise. As always, player choice will be a big feature in the game. New locations that players have never visited before will be featured, and at least one key character from the past will be returning--Dragon Age: Inquisition's Solas, who fans will remember as having played a significant role in that game's story. From early impressions given by Bioware, the game will also deal pretty heavily with the politics of the game's world, where the people in power aren't willing to address issues plaguing their people.

Release Date: TBA

Ubisoft's next big Far Cry game is set to make its way onto next-generation consoles. Set on Yara, a fictional island inspired by Cuba, you play as a guerilla soldier trying to topple the country's dictatorship led by "El Presidente" Antón Castillo (played by actor Giancarlo Esposito). According to Ubisoft, Far Cry 6 will have "the largest Far Cry playground to date," which should mean players can expect tons of chaotic open-world action.

Release Date: After April, 2021

Fortnite

Part of the appeal of Fortnite is that any modern device you might own can play the game. As such, Epic will bring Fortnite to PS5. It just makes sense. Releasing on more powerful hardware should be beneficial for the game, as the battle royale title--which puts 100 players on a single, gigantic map at once--benefits from more horsepower. However, Epic did not provide any details on how Fortnite will benefit from PS5's capabilities.

Epic confirmed that Fortnite will support cross-progression with the next-gen systems, so your account, items, and progress will carry over to PS5. The company also reiterated that Fortnite will continue to support cross-play between all platforms, including the next-gen consoles. Lastly, the company announced that it will migrate Fortnite on next-gen consoles to the Unreal Engine 5 in the middle of 2021.

Release Date: PS5 launch title

Ghostwire: Tokyo

Ghostwire: Tokyo is the latest project from famed developer Shinji Mikami and his studio Tango Gameworks. It's a psychological horror first-person action-adventure game set in Tokyo, where people start mysteriously disappearing, and your objective is to figure out why. The debut gameplay showed off fighting spirits with a combination of melee and magic attacks. There were also glimpses of otherworldly demonic creatures occupying Tokyo disguised as salarymen. As the hero, you can see and adequately fight against these threats. It will come to PS5 as a timed-exclusive.

Release Date: TBA

Godfall

Godfall

Counterplay Games is working with Borderlands studio Gearbox to release a fantasy action-RPG called Godfall as a console exclusive for PlayStation 5.

It has support for single-player and co-op where you can join groups of up to three players to take on the more dangerous challenges.

Release Date: PS5 launch title

Goodbye Volcano High

Goodbye Volcano High is a narrative-focused game with a 2D-cartoon visual style that tells a coming-of-age story with anthropomorphic animals. The brief glimpse introduced what appears to be the main cast of characters, who seem to be gathering together to burn a mysterious journal. All the while, high school drama ensues!

Release Date: TBA 2021

Grand Theft Auto Online & Grand Theft Auto V

Considering how successful Grand Theft Auto Online still is for Rockstar Games, it makes sense we'd see it transition over to next-generation consoles. Coming in the second half of 2021, the standalone version of GTA Online will be free for PS5 users for the first three months of its release. Grand Theft Auto V is also coming to the next-gen console in 2021. According to the brief trailer showcased at the start of the presentation, both will be expanded and enhanced.

Release Date: TBA 2021

Gran Turismo 7

Gran Turismo 7

It wouldn't be a new console generation without a new Gran Turismo game. What was showcased was a quick glimpse of the driving in the new Gran Turismo 7, but if the game's anything like previous entries, we'll be sure to get more of the series' iconic sim mechanics.

Release Date: TBA

Guilty Gear Strive

The visually striking 2.5D graphical presentation of fighting game Guilty Gear Strive seems like a proper fit for Sony's PS5. Fortunately, we can expect a next-generation version of developer Arc System's latest entry in the tenured series sometime in 2021.

Release Date: 2021

Hitman III

The next Hitman game features Agent 47 taking part in his "most intimate and professional contract" ever. He will travel to places like Dubai, among others, to complete his contract.

Release Date: January 2021

Hood: Outlaws & Legends

Hood: Outlaws & Legends is a competitive multiplayer game set in a gritty medieval world. The premise is simple: two teams of outlaws compete to steal treasure from an oppressive government. Alongside your allies, you'll fight against the rival team and sneak through areas patrolled by AI guards while utilizing your character's unique skills and abilities to execute the perfect heist.

Release Date: 2021

Horizon Forbidden West

Horizon Forbidden West
Horizon Forbidden West

It makes sense that Guerilla Games would unveil the sequel to its critically acclaimed Horizon Zero Dawn during Sony's PS5 event. Once again, you play as Aloy, who's on a journey to help find a cure for a plague that appears to be causing local wildlife to die off. While you can expect to hunt more robotic beasts on land this time around, you'll also be able to explore underwater and discover more dangerous secrets beneath the surface.

Release Date: TBA

Jett: The Far Shore

Superbrothers, the developer behind the critically acclaimed Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, finally revealed its next game. Enitled Jett: The Far Shore, it looks like it'll involve a fair bit of intergalactic travel, accompanied by some gorgeous vistas.

Regardless, Little Devil Inside will now be making its way to PS5.

Release Date: TBA

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum

Daedalic Entertainment, the studio known for its point-and-click adventure games, is developing an all-new Lord of the Rings game that is focused on an unlikely character: Gollum. In The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, you play as Gollum in a story told from the creature's perspective. It's the first time across the entire Lord of the Rings brand--movies, TV shows, books, etc.--that a story is being told from Gollum's perspective, which is intriguing to think about. Very little is known about this game, and no images or firm details have been released yet. But Gollum is often overlooked in Middle-earth, so it's exciting to see him finally get his own game.

Release Date: 2021

Only a brief glimpse was shown of NBA 2K21, but what we saw was pretty darn impressive. Admittedly, the first look was labeled as "PS5 pre-alpha" footage, but that didn't make the droplets of sweat on New Orleans Pelicans star Zion Williamson look any less jaw-dropping.

Release Date: TBA

Observer: System Redux

Observer: System Redux is a next-generation remake of developer Bloober Team's 2017 cyberpunk horror game of the same name. It tells the story of detective Daniel Lazarski, who's investigating a mystery involving his estranged son.

The game tells the story of a quantum research facility near San Francisco that sends a distress call, prompting a response from the local fire department. You and your fellow firefighters show up, but the rescue mission slowly turns more cosmic and weird.

Release Date: TBA

Rainbow Six Siege

Ubisoft's Rainbow Six franchise hit a high point with Rainbow Six Siege, which is adored by fans and has many millions of players today, nearly five years after its initial release in 2015. It's good news, then, that Ubisoft has confirmed that the team-based tactical shooter will also be supported on PS5. Not only that, but Ubisoft has already committed to using cross-generational multiplayer, which should help players on the new consoles find people to play against.

Release Date: Holiday 2020

Rainbow Six Quarantine

Rainbow Six Quarantine is a spin-off of the massively popular Rainbow Six Siege.

It's not just Rainbow Six Siege that will be available on PS5. Ubisoft is bringing its brand-new Rainbow Six game, Quarantine, to the next wave of consoles. Very little is known about the game at this stage, but its name and description might raise some eyebrows in light of recent events in the world. The official description for the game states: "The Rainbow Operators will face off against a totally new breed of mutated alien parasite infecting human hosts and their surroundings."

Release Date: After April 2021

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

Insomniac Games is also hard at work on another Ratchet & Clank sequel.

Insomniac has said the ability to quickly travel between game worlds is only possible with the PS5's super-fast SSD. There will be no loading screens in the game at all.

Release Date: PS5 launch window

Resident Evil: Village

Resident Evil: Village
Resident Evil: Village

Resident Evil: Village is the next mainline entry in Capcom's long-running survival horror franchise, and it looks horrifying and ridiculous. The series is getting even weirder as it pushes the present timeline forward with new terrors that go against the grain of the T-virus infected zombies and test tube abominations that longtime fans have come to expect.

Set in an isolated village in the mountains, Resident Evil Village has you playing returning RE7 protagonist Ethan Winters, who must fight his way to escape what appears to be a cult led by a cast of eerie villains. Also, Chris Redfield makes a return and he seems to be playing the role of a villain this time. Though it's currently unclear why he's so antagonistic against Ethan. Regardless, Capcom seems to be taking bold steps away from what we've come to expect from the franchise with its next-generation debut.

Release Date: TBA 2021

Returnal

A new third-person shooter from House Marque (Resogun, Nex Machina), Returnal puts you in control of an unnamed woman who has landed on an alien planet to fight against what appears to be demonic creatures.

As such, the planet appears to change every time you die, impacting the player's character. It will come exclusively to PS5.

Release Date: TBA

Sackboy: A Big Adventure

Sumo Digital (the team behind Little Big Planet 3 and Little Big Planet on PS Vita) is working on an LBP spin-off called Sackboy: A Big Adventure. This upcoming game will be a 3D platformer with an isometric perspective and will feature cooperative multiplayer.

Release Date: TBA

Solar Ash

The next game from the team behind the critically acclaimed Hyper Light Drifter is coming to PS5. Entitled Solar Ash, you appear to play as a female being who travels into a black hole and awakens in a vibrant but seemingly desolate world. From the early gameplay, the game looks to be an action-platformer with a brisk pace.

Release Date: TBA 2021

Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Spider-Man: Miles Morales
Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Spider-Man: Miles Morales is the follow-up to 2018's Marvel's Spider-Man, a PS4-exclusive starring Peter Parker as the titular web-slinger. It's currently unclear whether the game is a sequel to 2018's Spider-Man or a spin-off. Regardless, you play as Morales as he embarks on a crime-fighting journey after discovering that he has spider-powers after the end of the first game.

Release Date: PS5 launch title

Ubisoft's Watch Dogs sequel, Legion, from Ubisoft Toronto and acclaimed director Clint Hocking, is yet another Ubisoft title confirmed for the PS5. It was initially slated to arrive in March 2020 for the current-generation of consoles, but Ubisoft pushed the game to give the developers more time to "ensure that their … innovations are perfectly implemented so as to deliver optimal experiences for players." Coinciding with the delay, Ubisoft also confirmed that Legion would be released on next-gen consoles. It's exciting to think about what the power of the PS5 could deliver for Legion, as the game is said to allow you to control any NPC you see in the world.

Release Date: PS5 launch title

Yakuza: Like a Dragon

Like a Dragon is a new entry in the long-running Yakuza series about organized crime in Japan. A launch title for the Xbox Series X, Like a Dragon makes a big change for the series with its turn-based RPG combat. The game was released in Japan earlier this year, but this is the first time it's coming west.

Release Date: TBA

Unconfirmed But Expected PS5 Games

Battlefield 6

Swedish developer DICE is finishing up its commitments to Star Wars: Battlefront II and Battlefield V, and moving on to the next proper Battlefield game. Battlefield 6, or whatever it ends up being called, is scheduled to arrive in 2021. The most recent games, Battlefield V and Battlefield 1, took place during World War II and World War I, respectively, but there is no word yet as to the time period of the new instalment. The franchise hasn't returned to a modern warfare setting since the tepidly received spin-off Battlefield Hardline in 2015.

Release Date: 2021

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare/Warzone

No Caption Provided

Infinity Ward's Taylor Kurosaki recently stated that Activision is planning to launch Call of Duty: Warzone, the battle royale game, on the next generation of consoles. Considering it is tied directly to Modern Warfare, it would seem like that game would be supported as well. Given the strong momentum that Warzone is enjoying currently, it makes sense that Activision would look to leverage the power of the PS5 to keep the train running, so to speak.

Release Date: TBA

The Elder Scrolls VI

Aside from the logo, there's not much to go off of yet from the upcoming The Elder Scrolls VI.
Aside from the logo, there's not much to go off of yet from the upcoming The Elder Scrolls VI.

Bethesda Game Studios is developing a new installment in its acclaimed Elder Scrolls fantasy series. A reveal trailer released during E3 2018 confirmed that Bethesda had begun work on the title, but it appears to still be very early days for the project. It makes sense that Bethesda would return to one of its best-known and most-acclaimed franchises with new consoles coming soon. After all, The Elder Scrolls V has sold a whopping 30 million copies--across nearly every platform under the sun--making it one of the most successful single video games in history. Like Starfield, Bethesda hasn't said if The Elder Scrolls VI will come to next-generation consoles, but that seems like a sure thing.

Release Date: TBA (but confirmed to be after Bethesda Game Studios' other new game, Starfield)

Warframe

The immensely popular free-to-play shooter Warframe, which was originally released in 2013, is coming to next-generation consoles. Parent publisher Leyou announced the next-gen version during an earnings event where it stated that bringing the title to new systems should help the game grow even bigger still.

Release Date For PS5: TBA
