PlayStation 5 games: List of upcoming titles for Sony’s PS5

Sony isn’t playing any games when it comes to its launch lineup.

The console will be home to many Esports titles, including the ever-popular “Madden” and “NBA 2K” franchises, along with “Fortnite,” “Rainbow Six” and potentially a new edition of “Call of Duty.”

On June 11, 26 games for the next-gen console were revealed, with many rumored or announced before that, including a new entry to the “Assassin’s Creed” series and more. Usually, console launches are light on content, and it takes developers a year or two to really get into gear when it comes to new console tech and abilities. 

That said, don’t expect a lot of the “Esports-ready” games to be exactly “Esports-ready” at launch. While pro leagues and governing bodies will install some of the new console gen infrastructure in the coming year, don’t be surprised if those same leagues shy away from using consoles as bugs, glitches and the technology are figured out. After all, while the power and capabilities of the PS5 have been outlined, they haven’t been demonstrated yet.

There are definitely lots of high hopes entering the new era of gaming. Here’s what you need to know about Sony’s offerings this holiday season and beyond:

‘Sackboy: A Big Adventure’

PS5 backwards compatibility

While there are no set details on the PS5’s backwards compatibility just yet, at Sony’s specs reveal in March, it appeared that PS4 games would be able to be played on the PS5. PS3 and PS2 games are likely not part of the equation, as Sony deemed it too pricey to include in its next-gen console.
