The PlayStation 5 (PS5) still has yet to launch and we don’t have a definitive idea of what the launch lineup looks like. Still, games are starting to be confirmed for Sony’s next-generation gaming machine. As such, we’ve compiled all the games so far that have been announced for PS5.

A little bit of clarification is needed here before we start. Because the PS5 is backward compatible with “almost all” PlayStation 4 (PS4) games, we’re listing games that specifically include listed PS5 support. Some of them are exclusive in some capacity, some will be Sony Worldwide Studios titles, some are next-generation hardware only, and others are available on current systems. There are also options, particularly the newer games, that may take advantage of the Dualsense controller. Here’s a list of every game coming to PlayStation 5 that we know of.
- Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
- Bluepoint’s unknown game
- DiRT 5
- Gods & Monsters
- Lord of the Rings: Gollum
- Quantum Error
- Scarlet Nexus
- Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine
- Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege
- Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2
- Watch Dogs Legion
- WRC 9
- Ultimate Fishing Simulator 2
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
The latest in the long-running Ubisoft franchise, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is being led by Ubisoft Montreal and takes players to Norway and England. We know from Ubisoft that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be available on PS5, though we’re not sure what exact enhancements will be offered.
Bluepoint’s unknown game
We don’t know what it is but Bluepoint is making a PS5 title. “We’re working on a big one right now,” Marco Thrush, president of Bluepoint Games, said. “I’ll let you figure out the rest.” Speculation abounds on the internet from a Metal Gear Solid collection to a possible Demon’s Souls remake. Hopefully this’ll be announced soon.
DiRT 5 is being developed and published by Codemasters. It’s set to release in October 2020 and will be compatible on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. The Xbox Series X version offers a 4K 60FPS mode as well as a 120FPS mode but the modes available on PS5 are currently unknown.
Godfall was the first PS5 title we ever saw. It revealed at the Game Awards 2019, with an internal gameplay trailer leaking a couple of months later. Developed by Counterplay Games and published by Gearbox, Godfall is described as a “looter-slasher” taking place in a fantastical world where the Knight’s Order fights back the apocalypse. It’s a console exclusive on PS5, though it’s also coming to PC via the Epic Games Store.
Gods & Monsters
First announced at E3 2019, Gods & Monsters is being developed by Ubisoft Quebec. It’s an open-world game focusing on Greek mythology, with an aesthetic that makes it look painted. While we don’t have a solid release date, and it was one of multiple games that Ubisoft delayed earlier this year, it will receive next-generation support.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum
This unusual, narrative-driven game from Daedelic Entertainment is scheduled to arrive sometime in 2021. Lord of the Rings: Gollum is coming to PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X.
Developed by People Can Fly and published by Square Enix, Outriders is set on the world of Enoch. It’s a co-op shooter with no microtransactions, and has gameplay blending various guns and deadly powers. Outriders is slated to release sometime in Holiday 2020 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
Described as cosmic horror first-person shooter, Quantum Error is a game from Teamkill Entertainment. It’s currently in development for PS4 and PS5.
This is a new IP from Bandai Namco, including the team behind Tales of Vesperia. Scarlet Nexus is set in a world where you use psycho-kinetic abilities to defend the Earth from terrifying mutants. It’s set to release sometime in 2020.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine
This spin-off title was first announced at E3 2019, eschewing counter-terrorism operations for survival against the infected. We don’t have a solid release window at this time, since this is one of multiple Ubisoft games that was delayed to allow for further polish. Whenever it does arrive, Rainbow Six Quarantine is set to get PS5 and Xbox Series X support.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege
First released in 2015, Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six Siege has received years of support, adding dozens of new operators, maps and more. Ubisoft has confirmed that Rainbow Six Siege will get updated to take advantage of the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2
Developed by Hardsuit Labs and published by Paradox Interactive, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is the dream sequel no one thought could actually happen. You’ll pick between different vampiric factions as you navigate a world of darkness in this immersive sim and role-playing game set in Seattle. When it launches later in 2020, it’ll have PS5 and Xbox Series X support.
Developed and published by Digital Extremes, Warframe is a free-to-play game that puts players in the skins of Tenno, warriors that have been in cryosleep and are awakened to join interplanetary wars. Digital Extremes has confirmed that Warframe will receive support for PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Watch Dogs Legion
Another Ubisoft game that was delayed (you might be noticing a pattern here) to allow for further polish, Watch Dogs Legion presents the ambitious idea that you can play as any non-player character (NPC). Like the other Ubisoft games listed here, it’ll receive PS5 and Xbox Series X support. It’s currently scheduled to release sometime before April 2021.
This racing game from Kylotonn and Bigben Interactive is coming to next-generation consoles as well as current hardware.
Ultimate Fishing Simulator 2
This fishing game is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X in 2021.
More to come
As time goes on and the PS5 gets closer to release, we’ll continue to update and expand this list as new games, including PS5 exclusive games and projects from Sony Worldwide Studios, are announced.
