More PS5 Game Reveals Are Coming, Says PlayStation Boss
Sony showed 24 games during its reveal event, but promised "this is just the start."
As part of the PlayStation 5 reveal event, Sony announced or showed off more than two-dozen new games for the next-generation console. This is just the beginning of what to expect in terms of games, according to PlayStation boss Jim Ryan.
Ryan told the BBC that Sony chose to spotlight games big and small during its briefing to let people know there will be a wide variety of gameplay options on the console. But if you didn't see anything you like, Ryan stressed that more game reveals are coming.
"We wanted AAA games that would fully demonstrate the horsepower of the machine. But some of these smaller games are making very cool and innovative use of the new features of the console," he said. "So we allowed the show to give a sense of the sheer range of gameplay experience that will be available on PlayStation 5. And this is just the start. There are so many more games that we have in development."
It's a safe bet that all--or at least most--of Sony's first-party studios will at some point work on a PlayStation 5 game, so indeed, there are plenty more games to be announced. And this is to say nothing of the numerous third-party games for PS5 that have not been shown yet.
Sony's Naughty Dog studio is about to release The Last of Us Part II for PS4 on June 19, and it's a pretty safe bet that the company's next game will be made for PS5. Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann recently teased that the studio is considering its options for what comes next, whether it be The Last of Us Part III, a new IP, or something else entirely.
Some of the PS5 exclusive games announced during Sony's event today included Horizon: Forbidden West, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Gran Turismo 7, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and Sackboy: A Big Adventure. In terms of third-party games, Grand Theft Auto V, Hitman III, and Resident Evil Village are also headed to PS5 (in addition to Xbox Series X and PC in some cases).
