Every Confirmed and Rumored PlayStation 5 Title So Far

Every Confirmed and Rumored PlayStation 5 Title So Far

Here’s every upcoming PS5 game, rumored and confirmed.

The PlayStation 5 has been officially confirmed by Sony, all set for a Holiday 2020 release date. There are very few confirmed games thus far but plenty of juicy rumors to tide you over until we hear more. To make sure you don’t miss out on any announcements we’ll be collecting every confirmed PS5 game in this guide. We’ll also be collecting the top rumored titles, from a new Lord of the Rings game to a possible new entry into the Call of Duty franchise. Let’s take a look at the PS5 games we know about so far:

Confirmed PS5 Games

Given that the PlayStation 5 is still a ways out it’s not too surprising that we don’t have a huge offering in terms of confirmed games. Publishers and developers are being a lot more open about next-gen projects this time around however, so we do have a little to go on. Here are the confirmed PS5 games we know about so far:

Godfall

  • How Likely: Confirmed
  • Release Date: Holiday 2020
  • Elevator Pitch: Hack and slash action game with focus on loot, gear and cooperative play.

Godfall is well and truly confirmed for PS5, having been revealed at The Game Awards 2019. It’s described as a “fantasy looter-slasher”, with the trailer giving off serious Destiny/Darksiders vibes. Godfall is being developed by Counterplay Games, which is made up of ex-Ratchet and Clank, God of War and Destiny developers. The CEO of Counterplay Games recently shed some new light on Godfall over on the PlayStation Blog, revealing that it is designed “from the ground up with co-op in mind”. Godfall is confirmed to be a PS5 launch title, available Holiday 2020.

NBA Live 21

  • How Likely: Confirmed for next-gen
  • Release Date: Not confirmed, but likely start of 2020-2021 season
  • Elevator Pitch: The next entry into EA’s flagship basketball game series.

The NBA Live series has taken some real knocks over the last few years. So many knocks in fact that EA actually cancelled NBA Live 20. This was reportedly to start work on NBA Live 21 which according to EA, will be “something fresh for the next generation of players and platforms”. Hopefully then EA can hit the 2020-2021 season of NBA and have a game ready for the PS5 launch come Holiday 2020.

Unannounced Bluepoint Project

  • How Likely: Confirmed for PS5
  • Release Date: Aiming for 2020
  • Elevator Pitch: We have no idea as of yet.

Rumors surrounding what exactly Bluepoint Games is working on have been rife for a while now. The studio previously worked on remakes and remasters primarily including Shadow of the Colossus (2018) and Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. While speaking to Wired last year, Marco Thrush (President of Bluepoint Games) revealed that the studio is “working on a big one right now”. The main rumor is that this is a modern port or remastering of Demon’s Souls, though there’s very little evidence to go on currently.

Dying Light 2

  • How Likely: Confirmed for next-gen
  • Release Date: n/a
  • Elevator Pitch: Rooftop jumping, zombie killing and smart RPG choice systems.

The original Dying Light was a real cult hit, thanks to addictive zombie-killing gameplay and a smart release strategy. Its sequel is due for release in Spring 2020, though thanks to an interview between WCCFtech and some of those working on the game we know that there’s also plans for a next-gen release. We don’t know when this next-gen version of Dying Light 2 will launch, though given that it’s already on its way to PS4, a PS5 seems like a shoe-in.

To be more specific - yes, the plan since the beginning of production has been to make Dying Light 2 a cross-generation title.

Watch Dogs: Legion

  • How Likely: Confirmed for next-gen, specifically Sony and Microsoft systems.
  • Release Date: Fiscal year beginning April 1, 2020.
  • Elevator Pitch: Play as an old lady, a cockney geezer, some guy named George. Hack London and fight your way to building a new revolution.

Now for a bit of a Ubisoft rock-block. The first Ubi tite to be confirmed for PS5 is Watch Dogs Legion. The game was recently pushed from its early 2020 release date, though when it does come out we can also expect a next-gen version. In an earnings call back in October 2019, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot confirmed that five games (including Watch Dogs Legion) will take “full advantage” of the new consoles.

Rainbow Six: Quarantine

  • How Likely: Confirmed for next-gen
  • Release Date: Fiscal year beginning April 1, 2020.
  • Elevator Pitch: A new strain of an alien virus has ravaged the city. Time to squad up and take it down.

Another Ubi game confirmed for next-gen in the same earnings call is Rainbow Six Quarantine. We’ve seen practically nothing of the game yet, short of a very dark teaser trailer. It looks to be centered around a virus, and will no doubt feature the series’ penchant for tactical shooting.

Gods and Monsters

  • How Likely: Confirmed for next-gen.
  • Release Date: Fiscal year beginning April 1, 2020.
  • Elevator Pitch: Breath of the Wild style adventure game featuring gods and monsters from Greek mythology.

The final game revealed to be cross-generational by Ubisoft is Gods and Monsters. This fantasy adventure game was revealed during E3 2019 and we’ve not really seen much on it at all. We do know it’s planned to launch on next-gen consoles, so keep an eye out for further updates.

FF7 Remake

  • How Likely: Comments from Square Enix President makes it extremely likely.
  • Release Date: N/A.
  • Elevator Pitch: A remake of one of the best JRPGs of all time.

The release of Final Fantasy 7 Remake is fast approaching, currently aiming for a March 3 release. In an interview with Game Informer Square Enix president and CEO, Yosuke Matsuda mentioned that “I believe that our teams have made it so that the game will support both the next generation and the current generation of consoles.” This should mean that there are indeed plans to bring Final Fantasy 7 remake to PS5, whenever that may be.

FFXIV

  • How Likely: Confirmed for PS5.
  • Release Date: N/A.
  • Elevator Pitch: An ongoing fantasy adventure, built for online play

Another Final Fantasy title now, and one that has been confirmed to be making its way to PS5 at some point. During a fanfest event in London last year, FFXIV director Naoki Yoshida confirmed that “he and the rest of the team are hard at work on the PlayStation 5 version of Final Fantasy XIV, aiming to make it a reality for fans around the world”. We don’t have a timeline for this yet, but will be sure to update when we do.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum

  • How Likely: Confirmed for next-gen
  • Release Date: 2021
  • Elevator Pitch: Play as Gollum in a game set before the events of The Lord of the Rings

A new The Lord of the Rings game has been announced for a 2021 release. It’s called The Lord of the Rings Gollum, and is described as a stealth action game set before the events of the books. We don’t have much to go on, only that the game will release in 2021 for PC and ‘all relevant consoles at the time’.

Rumored PS5 Games

Now we venture into the realm of gossip and hearsay. Each of the following games has some evidence pointing to a PS5 release, though no official confirmation. As each game gets announced for real, we’ll update the page (same for if they are denied).

Black Ops 5

  • How Likely: Unconfirmed, but a good chance
  • Release Date: Call of Duty games nearly always release in November.
  • Elevator Pitch: Rumored to be set during the Cold War

It’s no surprise that a new Call of Duty is scheduled for 2020, though it’s not the one you might expect. According to a report published by Kotaku last year, Black Ops 5 will be released by Treyarch in 2020. If this is indeed the case, you can expect it to be a cross-generation game, much like 2013’s Call of Duty Ghosts.

Horizon 2

  • How Likely: Given the success of the first game, very likely.
  • Release Date: N/A
  • Elevator Pitch: Story-driven open world adventure where you take on robot dinosaurs using a suped-up bow.

Sony really ran away with last gen in terms of exclusives. One of the most popular of its first-party offerings was Horizon Zero Dawn, and while a sequel is surely a shoe-in, we haven’t had official confirmation as of yet. What we do have is a slip-up by Battlefront 2 actor Janina Gavankar, who accidentally confirmed the sequel while speaking to a fan at last year’s Star Wars Celebration.

That’s everything we know so far about what games you’ll be able to play on PlayStation 5. For more info on the upcoming console be sure to check out our everything we know page.
