The hugely successful launch of Sea of Thieves on PS5 this week fulfilled Microsoft’s commitment to Sony’s system, following its widely publicised business update earlier in the year. During that broadcast, boss Phil Spencer focused on four titles: Rare’s aforementioned seafaring release, Grounded, Hi-Fi Rush, and Pentiment. All of the aforementioned are now officially available.

So, what’s next? Well, the rumour mill is churning once more, with Windows Central scribe Jez Corden among the thick of things. According to his speculation, as shared on ResetEra, all future first-party franchises could eventually make the transition to PS5 – including Halo and Forza Horizon. There have also been rumours of Gears of War.

While nothing is written in stone here, Microsoft itself is certainly making similar noises. During a financial briefing earlier in the year, CEO Satya Nadella boasted about his company’s success on the PS Store, and affirmed the Redmond firm’s commitment to “meeting players where they are”. It’ll be interesting to see which games it reveals for PS5 next – and when they’re coming.
