Release Date: TBA

Status: Announced with no platforms specified, but strongly hinted to be a next-gen title

The Elder Scrolls VI is years off, and that means it's almost certainly going to be a PS5 game. Publisher Bethesda has made a habit of announcing its games relatively close to their release dates, but with this one, its hand was somewhat forced at E3 2018 due to swirling speculation and the fact that it had to keep fans happy after talking at length about mobile titles.

Final Fantasy VII Remake (PS5)

Status: Announced for PS4, but also in development for PS5

Square Enix has outright admitted that Final Fantasy VII Remake will release on the PS5, after the boss of the Japanese publisher Yosuke Matsuda revealed that the anticipated RPG is being developed for both generations of PlayStation hardware. It makes sense when you consider that the story is being split into chapters, and the PS4 will be a bit long in the tooth by the time the second instalment arrives.

Release Date: TBA

Status: Announced for PS4, but given development progress, an additional PS5 release seems plausible

Unlike fellow PlayStation exclusives Death Stranding and The Last of Us: Part II, Ghost of Tsushima's release window is still up for debate. We don't quite know how far into development the game is, and so a PS5 version, whether it's a cross-gen launch or an enhanced edition that hits after the PS4 release, seems feasible. Again, this one is dependent on developer Sucker Punch and Sony's management of the project, but we're willing to bet that a lot of these later PS4 games are going to be carried over to the next generation in some way.

God of War 2 (PS5)

Status: Unannounced, but an educated guess

We already know that developer Sony Santa Monica is working on its next project, and given the outstanding success of God of War on PS4, a sequel is inevitable. Taking into account the development time of a potential project like this, it's reasonably safe to say that it'll launch on the PS5.

Release Date: TBA

Status: Unannounced, but in development

Guerrilla Games is a huge studio, packing over 400 employees these days. While it’s likely working on a sequel to Horizon: Zero Dawn, then, there’s also strong speculation it has a new multiplayer project in the works. The Dutch developer re-hired the director of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege to work on an online-focused project, and given Sony’s vocal interest in multiplayer games, it’s likely that this will be a PS5 launch title designed to fill a hole.
