PlayStation 5: Everything We Know So Far

By: Anthony Garreffa | Editorials in Gaming | Posted: May 9, 2019 3:00 pm

Cyberpunk 2077

Come on, you can't be surprised at hearing that CD Projekt RED's ambitious new game Cyberpunk 2077 wouldn't be included in the launch of the PlayStation 5. I think it'll be a huge system seller for next-gen consoles and massive PC gaming upgrades, and since it should hopefully release in 2020 we should expect CDPR to roll out the red carpet that is Cyberpunk 2077 right onto the PS5.

 

Grand Theft Auto 6

Sony will be launching the next-gen PS5 with some stellar games I'm sure, but with nothign confirmed we'll have to look into 2020 to see what games Sony could launch its new console with. According to previous leaks, Sony has paid "huge money" for Grand Theft Auto 6 to be a 1-month exclusive on the PS5. If this is true, it will be a system seller on its own.

 

Death Stranding

We should expect Hideo Kojima's next-gen game Death Stranding to debut on the PS5 if it doesn't launch earlier on the PS4, but I really expect it to be a PS5 launch title. Again, that's a system seller right there. We're talking about a game we don't even know that much about, on a new platform that should push 4K 60FPS from the creator and mind of Hideo Kojima, the creator of Metal Gear Solid. Oof, excited.

 

 

The Last of Us: Part II

This is another game that will sell millions of PS5s with the first The Last of Us a huge success, all eyes are on its sequel to see if lightning can strike twice. Seeing The Last of Us: Part II on a next-gen PS5 with 4K 60FPS will be a huge deal, and it will be a great cross-gen title for PS4/Pro gamers as well, just like the rest of the games on this list.

 

Gran Turismo 7

I can see it now: Gran Turismo 7 running with near-photorealistic graphics at 4K 60FPS on the next-gen PS5 as a pure system seller. In the days of the original PS1 and PS2 the Gran Turismo franchise was a monster seller, and while it might not have flown so high on the PS4, the time has never been hotter for Polyphony Digital to drop GT7 on everyone and watch their jaws hit the floor.

 

PUBG 4K Remastered

This is the most surprising rumor of all: PUBG remastered in 4K for the PS5, which is an interesting twist to Microsoft having PUBG exclusivity on the Xbox One. It was found to be a mess and then downgrades happened, optimizations were performed and it got better - but a full 4K remaster for the PS5 would be a huge win for Sony if the rumors are true.

 

Battlefield: Bad Company 3

If there was a game that DICE needs to make before they're probably shuttered because of the recent Battlefield games not selling too well, it would have to be Battlefield: Bad Company 3. The series started out on consoles, reached its peak on with Bad Company 2 (that was also on the PC and kicked ass) and please DICE, let it continue on next-gen consoles. Current rumors have it pegged as a 2020 launch title with next-gen consoles, including the PS5 and Next Xbox.

 

New Harry Potter game

Another huge seller would be a huge multi-platform Harry Potter game, something that was teased in leaks late last year. Take note -- there hasn't been a big Harry Potter game on consoles since 2011. 9 years later and we might receive a new Harry Potter game, something that will surely have a huge audience to tap into.
