Unconfirmed, but likely, PS5 games
Currently we don't know much about the upcoming games for the PS5, since there are a lot of titles that still need to be confirmed. We can, however, make some good guesses about what we believe will be appearing on the PS5.
These games include:
- A new project from Bluepoint Games, the developer of the PS4 Shadow of the Colossus remake. "We're working on a big one right now," president Marco Thrush teased to Wired, "I'll let you figure out the rest." For extra context, the studio told Digital Foundry in 2018 that their next project is another remake, which makes it easy to assume these two games are one and the same.
- Cyberpunk 2077 - announced as the first non-Microsoft 'Smart Delivery' game, which means purchases on Xbox One will be upgraded to an Xbox Series X game for free "when available" as part of the same purchase. Though not confirmed yet, it's likely PS5 will get the same treatment (though whether you have to also pay for the upgrade is also unknown.
- Elder Scrolls 6 is definitely going to appear on the PS5. The only question is - when? For now you can enjoy our educated Elder Scrolls 6 location predictions.
- Starfield, Bethesda's space-based role-playing adventure, is still a few years away, making it a next gen game.
- Don't forget the yearly franchises, live service games and popular apps. Call of Duty, FIFA and Madden will all be appearing on the PS5 - no doubt about that. It's highly unlikely that Fortnite and Netflix won't be making an appearance either. We're still going to have to wait, however, for their official announcements.
