The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is usually more focused on gear and tech than software, but during Sony’s presentation during the event today, we got a little bit of news about when we can expect some of the PlayStation 5 games on the horizon. Near the end of the video, a bunch of small text shows the estimated releases for certain featured games (see image below). Though these may not be solid release dates, for several of the titles, these windows are updates from what was known previously.

For example, Capcom’s surreal-looking sci-fi adventure Pragmata was originally revealed as a 2022 release, but is now listed as coming out in 2023.

Kena: Bridge of Spirits was delayed out of 2020 to release early in 2021 instead. Now we know that "early" means sometime in March, according to this new info. If you want to learn more about Ember Lab's promising title before it releases, check out our Kena: Bridge of Spirits hub full of exclusive coverage.

Another interesting tidbit is about Square Enix's Project Athia (which is presumably still a working title). The game was unveiled this summer during a PlayStation 5 event, but with no information about a release target. Now we can see Square Enix is aiming to hit January 2022. However, the game is in development at Square Enix's Luminous Productions studio, which has a history of taking its time with its projects.

As for Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and Horizon Forbidden West, those are just listed as a vague "2021." That's not an update, but Sony has previously said that fans can expect Ratchet & Clank in the first half of the year, and Horizon in the second half.

Those may be some of the highest-profile revelations, but if you want to see everything in the tiny text without squinting at the image above, here's the relevant info in plain text:

  • Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart – 2021
  • Horizon Forbidden West – 2021
  • Returnal – March 19, 2021
  • Pragmata – 2023
  • Solar Ash – June 2021
  • Kena: Bridge of Spirits – March 2021
  • Stray – October 2021
  • Ghostwire Tokyo – October 2021
  • Little Devil Inside – July 2021
  • Project Athia – January 2022

Some of these we already knew about while others are new. Either way, it's good to have affirmation. I'm skeptical about Project Athia coming out in a year. What say you, SW? Do any of these games interest you? Of course Horizon is the big one 😉

Just Kena. I hope it really is March, but it may get delayed more. But that's fine.

Where’s GT7?

That’s my main reason for getting a PS5. No other titles interests me. Except for Horizon, but I really doubt it’s coming out this year

@SolidGame_basic: It's pretty much the only upcoming game I'm interested in. I love Housmarque's games.

@SolidGame_basic: You should be saying releasing on PS5/PS4/YT if you want to be factually correct :)

@SolidGame_basic: I've watched the first two episodes and skimmed through this one. I'm going media blackout from here out. I don't need to see more to know that I want it. Looks great.

@girlusocrazy: I lucked out with PS4 and found one late December right after launch.

I'm hoping to catch some more of that luck. :P

Pragmata 2023? Awww man, that’s disappointing. I know I’ll have plenty to play until then but I was really intrigued with that game.

Ratchet and Kena are likely day one buys for me, if I can find a PS5 by then.

I'll also be getting PS5 as soon as tax season starts. I do want to play Returnal & Miles Morales combine. Lets hope supplies be back to norm by then.

I kinda get it. It's a rogue lite type game, so it's like, Re (replay) turnal (eternally) lol. That's my interpretation!

Does it really matter when the particle effects are this good, tho? Gameplay is secondary.

@SolidGame_basic: How can someone who's been here for so long fail as often and as hard as you do, its quite the accomplishment 🤣🤣🤣
