The PS5 is only a month away from launching, and we now have a much clearer idea of what the launch lineup will include. Outside of that, though, many games have already been 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" 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 PS5 that we know of.
Some major PS5 games:
PS5 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.
After endless wars ravage Norway and resources are scarce, you'll lead your clan to the shores of England in the hopes of finding a new home. However, not everyone is keen on having Vikings around, and King Alfred of Wessex will do all he can to keep you from settling.
PS5 Astro's Playroom
Astro Bot is back in some platforming fun on the PS5. This game, developed by Japan Studio, serves as a demo of sorts for the different haptic feedback levels in the DualSense controller. It also comes pre-installed on every PS5. You can check out a bit of Astro's Playroom gameplay here.
It's Bugsnax. What more could you want to know?
Remedy Entertainment is developing a special version of Control for PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Control tasks players with entering the Oldest House as Jesse Faden, the new Director of the Federal Bureau of Control, managers of the unnerving and weird artifacts of the world.
PS5 Cyberpunk 2077
CD Projekt Red's upcoming RPG Cyberpunk 2077 will get a free PS5 enhancement patch at some point after launch.
Cyberpunk 2077 aims to be CD Projekt RED's most ambitious game yet, with a mature story set in the corrupt yet thriving Night City. As V, track down the secrets to digital immortality however you see best.

PS5 Destiny 2
Bungie has confirmed that Destiny 2 is receiving a free upgrade on PS5 that will arrive with the Beyond Light expansion. Destiny 2 will run at 4K 60FPS on PS5.

PS5 Final Fantasy 16
Not much is known about the newest entry in the Final Fantasy franchise, but we did get a trailer for it about a month ago. Final Fantasy XVI will launch sometime in 2021, with no official word on release information for platforms outside of PS5.
Epic Games has confirmed that Fortnite will support next-generation consoles at launch, while it will also migrate to Unreal Engine 5 in mid-2021.
PS5 Ghostwire: Tokyo
A new IP from Tango Gameworks, Ghostwire: Tokyo is a timed PS5 exclusive set to release in 2021.
PS5 God of War 2
The sequel to 2018's instant classic is already in development, with Sony Santa Monica teasing the game during Sony's latest PlayStation 5 showcase. The game is currently set to launch in 2021, although that is subject to change.
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.
PS5 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 in 2019, it will receive next-generation support.
Gods & Monsters promises an open world of mythic islands to explore, with gods to save, monsters to vanquish, and ancient powers to learn. We can't wait to try it out for ourselves and become a legendary hero.

In this anime-inspired world, your psycho-kinetic powers are key for holding back unstoppable mutant hordes.
PS5 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.
PS5 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.
5v5 action with numerous operators meets tactical first-person shooter gameplay. This game just keeps on going and is showing no signs of slowing down.
PS5 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.
It's really happening. Over a decade later, the beloved RPG is getting a sequel that promises to take all the elements players loved and bring them up to date with better combat, visuals, and more.
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.
Choose your Tenno and join the fight amid the stars — all for free, if you want.
PS5 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 on October 29.
Ubisoft is taking us to post-Brexit London with Watch Dogs: Legion. Play as anyone and recruit resistance fighters to join DedSec.
