It’s exciting every time a new console generation comes around, and this time is no different. 2020 marks the release of both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, and despite the ongoing pandemic disrupting workflow, both consoles are still on track to release this holiday season and that has been no indication that their planned dates are being moved. 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. Sony said in May that it plans to announce the launch lineup for PS5 “soon,” presumably over the summer as we learn more about the console’s design, as well. That was likely going to be on June 4, though a PlayStation 5 official presentation scheduled for that date has been delayed in the wake of ongoing protests.
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.
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.
You’ll see this list contains fewer titles than our Xbox Series X game roundup, and that’s due in part to how Microsoft held a dedicated event where it announced a long list of Xbox Series X games. Sony has yet to hold a proper PS5 unveiling event, but it will be holding one soon. Initially scheduled for June 4, the presentation has been postponed to an undetermined future date.
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.
PlayStation 5 Confirmed Games
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
Ubisoft’s next big Assassin’s Creed game takes us back to the Viking era. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is due to release as a launch title for the PS5. You play as Eivor–either a man or a woman–and your travels will take you across a variety of locations and landscapes. 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. There is a lot more to know about Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, so check out GameSpot’s extended coverage to learn more.
Release Date For PS5: PS5 launch title
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 is promising 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 For PS5: TBA
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 For PS5: TBA
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.
