Forums - Sony Discussion - PS5 launch game lineup

What do you think should or will be the next Playstation launch lineup.

Based on several years of development time for triple A titles i suspect these titles will be launch games for the PS5 or at least coming out within a year after the release of PS5.

  • Horizon zero dawn 2
  • God of war 2
  • The Last of Us 2 (Cross gen)
  • Cyberpunk 2077
  • Elder Scrolls 6
  • Starfield
  • Next gen Gran Turismo


Around the Network

Too many big hitters. Unless they are all crossgen, they won't be able to make them all in time if they go full PS5. And then people will go "PS5 is too full of ports", just like with the PS4's launch.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

Knack 3 + a bunch of already released on PS4 3rd party games. Basically the same as the PS4 launch lineup was



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I bet there will be a CoD and Fifa game.



That sounds good. Gta vi might not be far off a ps5 launch title the way things are going although you'd imagine they'll want to make this gen so folks can double dip.

Launch title will probably be disappointing, like it was with nearly every console Launch ever.

However, I just wait for them to announce PSVR 2. Give me that together with Fallout 4 VR and I will buy that sucker Day 1 and not even care about the price!



Official member of VGC's Nintendo family, approved by the one and only RolStoppable. I feel honored.

While your list seems plausible, sony would actually try and avoid doing that. Too many system sellers all within one year? Thats just bad business right there.

I won't be surprised to see all those games within the first two or three years of the consoles release though.

One thing for certain though is that I expect GT7 and Horizon 2 to be launch year titles. Following year we wull get GOW2. There will be a couple of other smaller titles from their studios and at least one whole new IP.



Resogun was my favorite launch PS4 game and it was free.



I think FFVII Remake is going to be a part of the launch year, it would be too early for GOW II, too early for Elder Scrolls VI. Now, it has been 5 years since GTAV, and when the next gen systems release it will probably be 7 or 8 years since GTAV. So, maybe GTAVI? One thing is for sure, Sony has options, good ones.

You want to give users a reason to buy a PS5, and that would take at least 2 big games similar to what Nintendo went for that allowed it to break US records.

  • Horizon zero dawn 2 likely launch title
  • God of war 2 likely in the first year
  • The Last of Us 2 (Cross gen) likely late port on PS5 after the initial release on PS4 earlier in 2020
  • Cyberpunk 2077 likely as late ports on PS5/XB4 after the initial PS4/XB1 release
  • Elder Scrolls 6 not likely, Starfield will be a next-gen launch title most likely and I doubt we'll see Elder Scroll 6 until 2 Holidays after Starfield, not 1 Holiday after
  • Starfield likely launch title
  • Next gen Gran Turismo possible, but as slow as they are I wouldn't count on seeing it in the first year

 

My responses to your list bolded

In addition, I think we'll see: the following in the first year assuming release is Holiday 2020:

 

  • A new Uncharted from a new Sony studio (might be 2022 though)
  • Square's Avengers game as a cross-gen title in 2020
  • A cross gen Assassin's Creed game the first Holiday and the first next gen only AC game the 2nd Holiday
  • The 3rd Shadow of Mordor game from Monolith
  • The AAA game that Avalanche has been hiring for for over a year (rumored to be Harry Potter based on UK knowledge being a prerequisite and the fact that Avalanche is owned by WB who has the Harry Potter license)
  • One of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake episodes
  • The AAA Star Wars open world game EA has been making for awhile now
  • Star Wars Battlefront 3 from DICE (it's rumored that the 3rd won't release on a bi-yearly schedule like the first 2 did, which means release Holiday 2020 instead of Holiday 2019 most likely)
  • Something from Rockstar, rather it's Bully 2 or GTA 6 is anyone's guess at this point. I've heard rumors that GTA 6 is aiming for 2022 as of now, so maybe we'll get Bully 2 as a cross-gen title in 2020, I can't imagine that Rockstar will only release 1 game (RDR2) and 2 remasters (GTA V and LA Noire) in a 9 year period
  • Obviously yearly stuff like CoD and sports games, which will be crossgen most likely
