PS5 games CONFIRMED
Spider-Man: Miles Morales
This one was a surprise! The follow up to the 2018 Spider-Man game will be out later this year. Miles Morales is the star this time around. He was teased as Peter Parker’s apprentice at the end of the first game. You’ll travel through New York at lightning speed thanks to the new PS5 SSD and that DualSense Controller will really come in handy.
Horizon Forbidden West
Another adventure from the franchise with the warrior taking on robotic dinosaurs in America. The PS5 sequel has a similar style to the previous game and visually looks great.
Another remake – the Oddworld 2014 game gets a revamp for PS5. This one remakes Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus. Abe leads an uprising with his people, the Mudokens against their overlords the Glukkons.
Resident Evil 8: Village
What’s a PS list without Resident Evil. The PS5 event shared a trailer for the horror game. Looks like we’ll return to the European location of Resident Evil 4…

Grand Theft Auto 5 Enhanced
So we didn’t get Grand Theft Auto 6, but we do get an enhanced 5. Rockstar games called it a “new and enhanced” edition. We aren’t sure what that means yet…
The game will be out in 2021. If you’re playing the GTA Online PS4 version you’ll get $1m in-game cash monthly until the PS5 launch.
This one is pitched as a PS5 design exclusive – it is out on PC too though. From the minds behind Final Fantasy, this is an action adventure in the same vein.

Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart
The kid-friendly game shooter really shows off the new PS5 SSD storage system with seamless leaps between scenes.

PS5 games rumoured
We know Cyberpunk 2077 is coming to Xbox Series X but we have no news as to whether it’s coming to PS5 yet. It does seem it will as CD Projekt suggested it… Perhaps they’re waiting for the PS5 game reveal. The game will be out in September though.
Both Sony and Hideo Jokima have not revealed whether Death Stranding will be on PS5. It’s on PS4 right now, and there have been hints, but we will have to wait and see.
Ghost of Tsushima
The adventure game Ghost of Tsushima sees us in Feudal Japan. We know the game is out in July this year which does give plenty of time for a PS5 reveal…It seems likely.
The Last of Us: Part 2
Originally set for release on 29th May, 2020, the game was pushed back to 19th June, 2020. The Last of Us: Part 2 looks set for a PS5 launch, but it hasn’t been confirmed.
Starfield is another Bethesda title. The company has a few things on their way, but there’s not much info out there on Starfield at the moment. With such scarce info it seems that we may have to wait a little for the PS5 release.
The Elder Scrolls 6
Bethesda has the much anticipated The Elder Scrolls 6 in the works, but no date yet. We do know it will be released after Starfield though.
Grand Theft Auto 6
Rockstar Games hasn’t announced Grand Theft Auto 6 at all, but fans can hope. It seems however long we wait though it’ll land on PS5.
Final Fantasy 7 remake
No confirmation here, but it has been announced as a PS4 exclusive for now. Given that PS4 is on its way out it does seem likely there will be some PS5 news soon.
Horizon Zero Dawn 2
Another title fans are waiting on, but no confirmation. Fingers crossed and no promises so far. A voice actor did hint that a sequel was in the works…
God of War 2
The game was released last year as a PS4 exclusive. It may take time but any sequel will most likely head to PS5.
