During Sony's CES 2021 presentation, Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan briefly spoke on the success of PlayStation, reaffirming that the PS5 had the largest console launch in history. Sony also shared a brief sizzle reel highlighting several PlayStation games. Per the bottom disclaimer text that accompanied the video, we may have some new release windows for PS5 titles.

It's highly possible that these dates are just estimates or placeholders, so I'd encourage waiting until developers and publishers share confirmation of these months and years before assuming this is completely accurate. If it is accurate however, it grants some more insight into just what PS5 owners will get to enjoy over the next year.

If you're still trying to grab a PS5, there's no shortage of titles currently available with some of the best PS5 games right now including Astro's Playroom, Demon's Souls remake and Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

Update, January 15 (3:54 p.m. ET) — These dates have been pulled

Sony has updated the upload of the CES 2021 video, removing several of the release windows that were previously given.
