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.
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.
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.
