But hey, at least we have a few months to save, for what it’s worth. Bookmark this page, we’ll update this article as new announcements are made. Tom Clancy now joins the lineup. Here’s what we know.

Confirmed PS5 games

Tom Clancy’s Rainbox Six Siege

Release date:
Genre: Squad-based shooter
: To be confirmed

Ubisoft confirmed that everyone’s favourite online tactical shooter, Rainbow Six Siege, to be available on PS5 from launch day. The game will support cross-generational multiplayer, so PS5 owners will still be able to play with their PS4 friends. 

We will share the PS5 teaser trailer once it’s released. Ubisoft’s creative director, Leroy Athanassoff, said:

“Siege is going to be on new consoles. The only thing we are communicating right now is the fact that we are supporting cross-generation matchmaking. For example, PlayStation 5 players can play with PlayStation 4 players, and Xbox Series X players can play with Xbox One players”.

Call of Duty: Warzone

Release date:

Activision confirmed that the popular title will be making its way to PS5, although it hasn’t confirmed the finer details quite yet. It is likely that the PS5 version will be free-to-play like the other versions and will support cross-generation and cross-play.

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla

Release date:

In Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, you can either play as Eivor, a fierce Viking raider all geared for battle and glory. If all that manliness is not for you, play as either Alexios or Kassandra.

The character you choose will not affect the gameplay, but it does change the other character’s story. In addition, both Alexios and Kassandra have different voice actors. Read more here.

“Being in Eivor’s boots as both a Viking raider and a clan leader, players will face the conflicts of establishing a new home in the midst of a power struggle for control of England”.

Cyberpunk 2077

Release date:

Cyberpunk 2077 is a futuristic, first-person, dystopian shooter/RPG blends action, humour, and gore. And hey, it stars Keanu Reeves too!

It was released on PS4 in April 2020, but it would make sense that a game of this calibre be released on PS5 too. You will play as V, an urban mercenary and cyberpunk who doesn’t shy away from taking money for doing dangerous jobs.

You can customise V any way you choose, and many characters you meet in the game are bisexual. Better save up, because if the Collector’s Edition is R3 500 on PS4, we shudder to think what the PS5 price tag might look like.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum

Release date:

Gollum was initially announced back in March 2019. However, the game developer, Edge, now confirmed that Gollum will also be available on “all relevant console platforms” in 2021.

It’s still unclear if the game will be gross-generation, so PS4 and Xbox One players will have to hold out until Sony or Edge provides more information about Gollum’s release.

Gollum is an action-adventure which focuses on the ring-obsessed creature. It tells Gollum’s story from a new perspective; but the developers assure that it stays true “to the legendary books”.


Gearbox introduced Godfall at The Game Awards, and described it as a “third-person fantasy looter-slasher focused on melee combat”. It’s the first game officially announced for Sony’s upcoming PS5.

Godfall supports solo, duo or three-player co-op and we are anxiously waiting for the first gameplay trailer. The game is set to release in November or December 2020.

Watch Dogs: Legion

Ubisoft confirmed that Watch Dogs: Legion would be coming to the PS5 as well. CEO Yves Guillemot announced that Legion’s would utilise the PS5’s “extremely interesting features”.

“The five titles, yes, they will be on this generation and the next generation, and they will take full advantage all the new features that are coming with the machines, which are actually going to be extremely interesting for players”.

Rumoured PS5 games

Resident Evil 8

 Trusted insider and horror enthusiast Dusk Golem said on social media that they are “99% sure now that RE8 is at the PS reveal event”, and added:

“All the RE games went on sale yesterday, and RE7, in particular, went on the deepest discount it’s EVER had by a long shot, around the same time the PS5 reveal event was supposed to happen yesterday. So yeah.”

A trailer containing RE8 leaks was compiled by Residence of Evil. It shows a new character, Emily, along with new story details. Watch the review here.

Assassin’s Creed: Kingdom

We do know that the next Assassin’s Creed will be Vikings-themed and we simply can’t wait to tap into the lore and legends. Ubisoft confirmed that the game will be released in 2020, which puts it suspiciously close to the PS5’s launch.

AC: Kingdom promotional material shows a Viking warrior holding the Apple of Eden and that is enough to get any hardcore AC fan willing to part with their money.

Call of Duty: Black Ops V

Another fan-favourite, Call of Duty will be released in 2020 as well, and is said to get a cross-platform release. Kotaku recently confirmed that the game will be set in the Cold War, which opens a world of possibilities.

Releasing it alongside the PS5 launch would make sense if it’s going the cross-platform route. Unfortunately, there are very few details available other than that, so we’ll just have to wait and see.

Death Stranding on PS5

I’m not going to lie, Death Stranding is that one game I simply cannot wait to launch. It’s coming to PS4 on 8 November and a PS5 release seems to be in the cards as well. How do we know this?

Mike Cerny’s smile, of course. According to T3, a reporter asked if Death Stranding would be released on PS5. While a spokesperson said that it was coming to PS4, Cerny could be seen smiling in the background.

Look, it’s not much to go on, we know, but still! Cerny smiled. For those who don’t know, Cerny is a game designer and executive, currently in partnership with Sony.

The Elder Scrolls VI

Listen, I’m going to be straight with you here. TES is probably the one franchise that stole the most hours from my life. I have lost consecutive days of my life playing Skryim.

If TES is coming to PS5, then Sony can take all my money, I swear. I might also have to cash in all my leave days, cancel all my plans and tell my family and friends I’d be unavailable for the foreseeable future.

Whether the Elder Scrolls VI will be released on PS5 remains to be seen. Back in June 2018, Bethesda released a short 36-second teaser trailer of the upcoming game. Other than that, we’re Jon Snow.

If this 36-second clip gives you goosebumps, you’re a true fan and the best this world has to offer. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

Final Fantasy Remake XII

It’s pretty much a given that Final Fantasy XII’s remake will run on PS5. After all, Square Enix CEO Yosuke Matsuda hinted that it “will support both the next generation and current generation consoles”.

The remake is set to release in March 2020 for current-gen consoles, and we’re assuming the next-gen batch will release alongside the respective console launches.
