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 regularly.
Status: Dated for PS4, but given scope of the game, an additional PS5 release seems likely
CD Projekt Red's next role-playing experience has already wowed with a couple of lengthy gameplay demos, 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 set to release in April 2020, we can definitely see it getting a PS5 edition once Sony's next-gen machine arrives. 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: Dated for PS4, but we can see it being re-released on PS5 given the timing
At this point we've seen quite a bit of Death Stranding, and we've played through the whole thing for review purposes. Sony's placed a lot of faith in iconic developer Hideo Kojima and his team at Kojima Productions, and we were somewhat surprised to see it get a 2019 release date. Still, given the game's lengthy production cycle, it's not too much of a jump to assume that it'll appear on PS5 in some form, especially now that it's confirmed for a PC release in the summer of 2020. In fact, system architect Mark Cerny has alluded to this very fact in past interviews.
Status: Unannounced, but heavily rumoured
Bluepoint Games has been rumoured to be working on a remake/remaster of Demon's Souls for what feels like an eternity, and with PS5 looming, it's very possible this game will end up on the next-gen platform. Adding fuel to this fire, Marco Thrush recently stated the team is making a "big game" for PS5. You know it makes sense.
Status: Announced for PS4, but probably won't even release before the PS5 is out
Blizzard has confirmed that Diablo 4 is in development for the PS4, but it's very, very likely that it'll end up being a PS5 title. The dungeon crawler currently has no set release window, and with the PS5 launching in late 2020, we reckon this return trip to hell is going to be a cross-gen excursion.
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.
