New PS4 Exclusive Games Confirmed For 2019
By GameSpot Staff on
We've got several PS4 exclusives to look forward to this year. However, there are still a few high-profile first-party games that have yet to be confirmed for 2019, like The Last of Us Part II, Ghost of Tsushima, and Death Stranding. Currently, Days Gone is the only first-party Sony game confirmed to launch this year.
There are quite a new PS4 exclusives coming in from third-party publishers. The highly-anticipated Shenmue III should launch, which is crazy to think now since the game was originally announced on Sony's E3 stage in 2015. Another big exclusive is the next project from the studios that brought us Yakuza. Titled Judgement, the game looks to be quite a departure from the macho gangster drama of the Yakuza series.
There's likely to be more PS4 exclusives announced as the year goes on, so be sure to check back often as we update this feature with the latest games. If you're looking for a more general overview of all the PS4 games this year, check out our feature highlighting the biggest PS4 games coming in 2019.
Which PS4 exclusives are you most excited about? In addition, what games do you hope release exclusively on PS4 this year? Let us know in the comments below.
Days Gone takes players to a post-apocalyptic open world, set in the Pacific Northwest. The action-adventure/survival-horror game puts you in the shoes of Deacon St. John, once an outlaw and now trying to survive in a devastated world. While on the road, Deacon must battle Freakers, zombie-like humans and animals that have become mindless and violent and travel in fast-moving hordes, much like the zombies in World War Z. Expect a heavy emphasis on crafting as you drive around on your motorcycle, hunting bounties.

Details are a little thin on Judgement, the next title from the team behind the Yakuza series, but it seems to involve playing as a former lawyer turned detective investigating a series of murders in Japan. Gameplay has you investigating crime scenes and trying to solve the mystery. Expect "something completely different" from the Yakuza series, as well.
Platforms: PS4 | Release Date: TBA 2019
A true sequel to the well-loved RPG Shenmue II, director Yu Suzuki's crowdfunded Shenmue III finally has a release date in 2019. Set in 1987, it picks back up with the story of martial artist Ryo Hazuki--but it won't be finishing it, leaving room for more returns to the world of Shenmue in the future.
Platforms: PS4, PC | Release Date: August 27
God Eater 3
God Eater 3 is the latest in Bandai Namco's long-running franchise competitor to Capcom's Monster Hunter series. Unlike previous entries--which were made primarily with portable consoles in mind--God Eater 3 is the first to be designed primarily for home consoles. As a result, the game has a grander scope containing expansive maps to explore, more creatures to fight, and a slew of new weapons and equipment to craft.
