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
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.
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.
It's Bugsnax. What more could you want to know?
Long-shrouded in mystery, Bluepoint Games' new project has been revealed as a Demon's Souls remake for the PS5. It's being developed with support from Japan Studio.
Bungie has confirmed that Destiny 2 is receiving a free upgrade on PS5. Destiny 2 will run at 4K 60FPS on PS5.
Shadowkeep is the latest Destiny 2 expansion, bringing players a terrifying new adventure against the Hive and sees the arrival of a mysterious, fear-inducing threat.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Become an Outrider and follow a mysterious signal across the alien planet of Enoch, full of hellish threats waiting around every corner.
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.
In this anime-inspired world, your psycho-kinetic powers are key for holding back unstoppable mutant hordes.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Ubisoft is taking us to post-Brexit London with Watch Dogs: Legion. Play as anyone and recruit resistance fighters to join DedSec.
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.

Google is playing the long game with its hardware company acquisitions
Why does Google keep buying companies that it doesn't always know what to do with?
At this point, Google should just launch the Pixel 4a with the Pixel 5
With delay after delay pushing back the Pixel 4a's launch into July and possibly August, it would make a lot of sense for Google to simply call it the Pixel 5a and launch it alongside the Pixel 5 in October.
