Not a lot is currently known about this mysterious new IP however, we do know that's it's coming to PS5 and PC at some point in 2022. According to disclaimer text from a PlayStation promotional trailer, it's a two year timed exclusive to PS5.

Forspoken isn't the only big upcoming Square Enix title arriving on PlayStation first, as Final Fantasy 16 is a timed PS5 exclusive as well, though unlike Forspoken, it doesn't currently have a release date or even a release window.
