Looks like 24th March could be the last dance for Bethesda and PlayStation 5 owners, as Ghostwire Tokyo’s release date has seemingly leaked on the PS Store. While we’ve been unable to replicate this potential error for ourselves, MP1st grabbed a couple of screenshots showing the aforementioned release date on the game’s product page.
It’s worth noting that this could, potentially, be a mistake – but the title was always targeting an early 2022 release date following its delay last year, so it feels believable. Much like Deathloop, Sony has timed exclusivity dibs on this Tango Gameworks title, so that’s why it’s still coming to the PS5 – despite Microsoft now owning Bethesda and its development teams in full.
We’ll check in with both Sony and Bethesda to see if it can clarify the release date, but we have to imagine an official announcement is imminent either way.
I’m still not entirely sold on this game because I’m not sure what it is exactly. The very first trailer we saw, the gameplay seemed repetitive. I hope it turns out well because but seems like an intriguing world.
I still have a very slim hope that the Indiana Jones game will come to PS5 as well given that it was announced before the Bethesda acquisition. I won't hold my breath by any means but Indiana Jones is the only Bethesda game I've been interested in since the PS2 days.
It looks really cool but yeah, would be earlier than I though!
Perhaps a sign of a PS event like a State of Play coming soon.
This game is an enigma to me.... it is coming this year, but the game still hasn't showed anything of relevance to be excited about it. It feels forgotten.
Tango Gameworks is also quite as heck about the game status, especially if you take in consideration that the game is set to release on March of this year.
If decent, I will probably buy it on sale. Not much hope about the game though.
Hmm. Is it spooky?
Yeah I'm not really sure I know what this game is about either really. Looking forward to more information hopefully soon.
@Grumblevolcano they better know what they're doing because they will get laughed at if not.
I’m really looking forward to this. It sounds dope and should have fantastic dualsense usage. Any MS sequel will probably feel like a step back without it. I’ll probably love this entry and never care about the series again.
Yeah, don’t know much about this game.
Maybe this is an over-correction from Sony and Bethesda to the complaints when they drown us with previews, trailers, and highlights in the weeks leading up to Deathloop. We were all deathlooped-out by the time the game released.
I also wonder if they will undercut the price really quickly like happened with Deathloop. I suspect so. Will be looking for it to go on steep discounts within the first couple months.
I've seen screenshots from several other users on Reddit, seemed legit. In Europe the date shows up as March 25th though (it's a Friday, which makes sense).
It's clear from the title what the game is about. In Tokyo, people receives wires from ghosts. Spooky~!
Surely a State of Play / Showcase beckons?
Honestly this one interested me more than Deathloop ever did so I'd be cool with that release date. It looked like an FPS only with magic instead of bullets with Japanese horror inspired enemies. Hopefully it turns out pretty good.
Isn't it a little strange that Microsoft has as many Japanese game studios as Sony? Just something to think about if Sony ever goes studio shopping 🙂
As for Ghostwire I'm already sold, the aesthetic and just the whole atmosphere is pretty incredible in my eyes. I just need some of the story but it will probably be the typical Japanese horror story which is perfectly fine for me.
So no hope for elder scrolls 6 on PS5? That hurts
Any bets on if it’ll be a half-finished hot mess that receives little post launch support?
@Salt_AU this game was revealed even before the Bethesda take over from Microsoft. Sure all we saw was a title screen but we knew it existed.
That is the only hope I really have that they will decide to give PS5 a version of the game as well, because it's not a new IP and already has a massive following on PlayStation.
With info on Ghostwire and Hogwarts popping up so recently and that weird timer that was on the Abandoned website, I’m really hoping that State of Play rumor for February 1st is true… or you know, Sony, my birthday is next Friday, so… it’s ok to be early on this. I’m genuinely curious if cautious on this one. I love the premise, at least.
Huh, I completely forgot that this is a Bethesda game but I'll always incorporate it with the wonderful Ikumi Nakamura. Anyway, I'll be looking forward to this. Ghostwire Tokyo does have a lot of mystery into it.
I for one am glad the marketing has been cryptic about what this game really is. Too many games give away too much in the marketing before release and a lot of media has benefitted in the past from this approach.
Fingers crossed that date is true, not enough March games imo.
Has there been any Sony marketing, Exclusives are always tided to marketing spend. It why we saw so much Deathloop from Sony before release. I'm not even sure what this is about
@Mega-Gazz Not really? Tango Gameworks hasnt really released any half baked titles
I'm more interested in this than Deathloop despite having a lot of fun with that game. Hopefully it lives up to the hype
Like @Medic_Alert I have little idea what this game actually is. But it looks cool. and while Tango gameworks titles so far have been pretty janky they've also been cult classics so i'm cautiously optimistic.
@LightningLeader Didn't Phil Spencer say that "The Elders Scrolls Exclusivity, and all of out games was not made to hurt Playstation users, but to boost the Xbox" or something like that a few months ago?
PS: Also on ur argument, the same could be said about Starfield (which probably has a half baked PS5 version), but will be exclusive to XGP platforms, the only game i can see releasing on PS4 is Indiana Jones, thanks to the deal with Disney, but even then Microsoft could have renegotiating in favor of exclusivity.
