2020 is the start of a new decade that also brings with it a new console generation. Sony has given slight teases to how the PlayStation 5 will run and what kind of features the new controller will have, but we have yet to see what the console itself looks like and how much it will cost. That being said, we do know quite a few games that will be coming to the PlayStation 5. Here are all the PS5 games we know about so far.
Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales
As of this writing, there is some confusing messaging around whether this is a full-blown sequel or expansion of the PS4 Spider-Man title. We expect to see a game similar in scope to Uncharted: Lost Legacy as a stop-gap until the full-blown Spidey sequel comes down the line. It is coming holiday 2020, so it is a good bet to be a day one launch title.
Gran Turismo 7
PlayStation’s classic racing simulator franchise is returning on the PS5 with Gran Turismo 7.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
Inter-dimensional rifts, more insane weapons, and a new lombax? The latest Ratchet & Clank game looks bigger and better than ever. While there is no release date yet, the fact that Insomniac showed off so much of the game could hint that this will release in the launch window of the PS5.
Horizon Forbidden West
Horizon: Zero Dawn’s sequel sees Aloy trying to save the wildlife in a new location destroyed by storms. No actual gameplay has been shown off yet. This could be a potential Fall 2021 title, but no release window has been given as of this writing.
Astro is moving away from virtual reality in this game packed in on the PS5, reportedly designed to show off the DualSense controller’s capabilities.
Godfall is a game being developed by Gearbox, creators of Borderlands, for the PS5 and Epic Games Store this holiday season. Little is known about the game so far beyond the trailer above that was shown at the Game Awards. The official Godfall Twitter account describes the game as a “next-gen looter-slasher from Counterplay Games & @Gearboxofficial. Set in a bright fantasy universe, utilize melee combat for hunting for loot, donning legendary armor sets, and pursuing vicious enemies.”
Bluepoint Games is a studio well known for its work on remakes of popular PlayStation properties. They bring that success to the PS5 with a complete remake of Demon’s Souls, the predecessor of Dark Souls.
Sackboy A Big Adventure
Sackboy from the LittleBig Planet games is getting his own 3D platforming adventure with up to four-player cooperative play. This could be a second chance for the little guy to really nail down his spot as one of PlayStation’s iconic mascots.
Relive this character’s crash, the attack, and death on repeat in this sci-fi action game. Every time you die, the planet you are on changes, so your skills will always be challenged in this third-person shooter.
Very little is known about Starfield; besides that, it will be the next big release from Todd Howard and the team at Bethesda. It is also the first new project Bethesda Game Studios will release in over two decades. The teaser trailer shows a structure in orbit of a planet. Expect to see more at E3 2020.
Elder Scrolls VI
If little is known about Starfield, then the newest Elder Scrolls has a minuscule amount known about it. All the teaser trailer reveals is a mountainous area with a castle in it. The highly anticipated follow up to Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is known to be releasing after Starfield, so do not expect it to release anytime soon. Potentially we could see more at E3 2020, but I would not count on it.
Watch Dogs: Legion
Watch Dogs: Legion was initially slated to release on Mar. 20, 2020, for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. However, following a disappointing outing from Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, Ubisoft delayed it and two other titles. While we do not know when the new Watch Dogs will release now, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has confirmed all three delayed titles will release on both current and next-generation consoles.
Watch Dogs: Legion takes place in London and will allow you to recruit and play as tons of NPCs in the world. The trailer from E3 2019 shows a near-future period with drones and just a few of the possible characters you can take control of.
Rainbow Six: Quarantine
Rainbow Six: Quarantine is the second Ubisoft game to be delayed in 2020. There was no release date for the game initially, but a trailer was released, hinting at the zombie-like creatures you will be fighting against in the cooperative shooter. It will release on current and next-generation consoles.
Gods and Monsters
Gods and Monsters is the third Ubisoft game delayed in 2020. It was initially supposed to release in February 2020. The game is made by the same studio that made Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey and seems to feature fights against Greek mythological creatures. The E3 2019 trailer shows off the more cartoony graphics the game seems to be going. Gods and Monsters will release for current and next-generation consoles.
Assassins Creed Valhalla
Assassins Creed Valhalla is the next game in the long-running series from Ubisoft. It is set during the Vikings invasion of England. You play as Eivor, an assassin Viking leading the charge of the invasion. You will be able to lead raids on villages, build up your own settlement, and more.
The next Battlefield game will not release until late 2021 at the earliest. During a financial call in October 2019, EA announced that DICE’s next release would not happen until the 2022 fiscal year, which runs from April 1st, 2021, to March 31st, 2022. Nothing else is known besides them saying live service offerings will drive the game.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is a narrative-based game that will follow Gollum (or Smeagol) between him finding the one ring of power and losing it to Bilbo during the events of “The Hobbit.” The developers of the game, Daedalic, say the games will be based on the books and not the Peter Jackson movies so you can expect things to be different than your used to if you’re a fan of the movies. This is also only the first game they will be making in a series. As of now, it is slated to release in 2021 for PC and “all relevant consoles at that time,” which would imply a next-generation release.
Madden NFL 21
The next annual installment of Madden football was announced during the Inside Xbox stream on May 7th. Only a few seconds on in-engine footage was shown, and players on Xbox One will be able to upgrade to the next generation version for free for a limited time. It is unknown if this deal will make its way to the PlayStation version. Expect to learn more about the game during EA Play Live on June 11th.
Another annual sports franchise, the beloved NBA 2K franchise will be releasing on next generation consoles.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon
Yakuza: Like a Dragon is a game releasing during the launch window of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. The new entry brings in the series classic over-the-top action and story. Ichi is released from prison for a crime he took the fall for. He is greeted by the boss of the Yakuza, attempting to murder him and now seems to be looking for vengeance.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2
Vampire: The Masquerade returns with its sequel set to launch in the next generation. The cult classic follow-up is set in Seattle, where you have complete control over the kind of vampire you become.
The next title in the Dirt series is on the way. The racing game will feature both Troy Baker and Nolan North’s voices in its career mode as the pair mentor the driver—and host a podcast featuring real-life celebrities.
Resident Evil Village
