Sony’s next-generation console, the PlayStation 5, will launch sometime this holiday. While we still don’t have an official release date or price for the new console, Sony and third-party game publishers have confirmed a long list of games coming to PS5 this year and beyond.

Many familiar PlayStation franchises will continue on PlayStation 5, including Ratchet & Clank, Gran Turismo, and Horizon. And many current-generation games coming to PlayStation 4 (and other platforms) will be available on PS5, with developers like CD Projekt Red and Ubisoft releasing free updates to PS4 games to take advantage of the more powerful PS5.

There are still many unknowns when it comes to PS5 games, particularly around how games released on PS4 will carry over to the next-generation PlayStation. Some will get free upgrades, but some may get stand-alone PS5 releases. Some PS4 games — but not all? — will be playable on PS5 via backward compatibility.

Here’s a look at the list of games we know are coming to PlayStation 5.

PS5 exclusives

Games coming from Sony’s first-party studios include sequels, such as Insomniac Games’ Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and Polyphony Digital’s Gran Turismo 7. The list of PS5 exclusives also includes a remake of PlayStation 3 game Demon’s Souls and a follow-up to 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man starring Miles Morales. Publisher Bethesda Softworks is also bringing two of its games, Arkane’s Deathloop and Tango GameWorks’ GhostWire: Tokyo to PS5 first.

Here’s the current list of PS5 exclusives, which we will continue to update as new information becomes available:

  • Astro’s Playroom
  • Bugsnax (timed exclusive)
  • Deathloop (timed)
  • Demon’s Souls
  • Destruction AllStars
  • GhostWire: Tokyo (timed)
  • Godfall (timed)
  • Goodbye Volcano High (timed; also on PS4)

PS5 multiplatform games

Multiplatform publishers like Ubisoft, Electronic Arts, Capcom, and Square Enix are bringing new games to PlayStation 5. Games like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Marvel’s Avengers, and Cyberpunk 2077 will come to PS4 as well as PS5, but some multiplatform titles — Resident Evil Village, for example — are next-gen-only.

Here’s the current list of third-party multiplatform games coming to PS5. (In cases where the game will also appear on the PS4, we’ve only included games coming out in November or later.) We will continue to update the list as new information becomes available:
