What PS5 games have been announced? What PS5 games have been rumoured? In this guide, we're going to list every PS5 game that's been confirmed or rumoured ahead of the console's release, which is due in 2020. This list is based on at least partial confirmation from publishers or developers, rumours that have weight, and educated guesswork. We'll, of course, be updating this article over time as more information becomes available, so be sure to check back.
Status: Announced for PS4, but given scope of game and development progress, a PS5 release seems likely
CD Projekt Red's next role-playing experience has already wowed with a lengthy gameplay demo, and expectations are sky high after The Witcher 3. The Polish developer has stated numerous times that Cyberpunk 2077 is bound for the PS4, but given that the game is reportedly still a while off, we can definitely see it releasing as a cross-gen title. Besides, the sheer ambition on display suggests that Cyberpunk 2077 has already given us a glimpse of what an open world PS5 game could be.
Status: Announced for PS4, but given development progress, an additional PS5 release seems feasible
It's a bit mad to think that we still don't know an awful lot about Death Stranding. Sony's placed a lot of faith in iconic developer Hideo Kojima and his team at Kojima Productions, and it's clearly willing to give the studio the time that it needs to ensure Death Stranding's quality. However, given the game's production cycle thus far, it's not too much of a jump to assume that it'll appear on PS5 in some form. In fact, system architect Mark Cerny has alluded to this very fact in recent interviews.
Status: Unannounced, but not impossible
With the PS5 confirmed to be backwards compatible, Media Molecule may not feel it needs to port Dreams to the next-gen console at all. However, it will surely want the creation engine to span multiple generations, and a native port to the PS5 could allow for even more imaginative potential to be unlocked. It's guesswork, but not unrealistic.

Like Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima's release window is 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.
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.
