Stop the press—25 new PlayStation 5 games are in the works from various gaming studios. PlayStation Studios, Sumo Digital, and Housemarque are developing new games for PlayStation 5, and most of them are scheduled to come out this year. Some of the titles of the new PlayStation 5 games are also revealed.
Gamers are in for a treat when Sony announced that it was developing Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, which will be out for sale next month, and this news gives people an idea of what else Sony has been working on.
Other game titles include Sony Santa Monica’s God of War: Ragnarök and Guerilla’s Horizon Forbidden West. However, apart from the three aforementioned games, Sony has not revealed the other titles that will be available for gameplay on the PlayStation 5. It’s likely that a sequel to Marvel’s Spider-man and a remake of The Last of Us are in the works, but so far, Sony is keeping its other gaming projects under wraps.

We are certain that Sony will gradually drop the titles it and its partner studios have been working on, so we will all just have to wait and see. However, it has already been confirmed that gamers can expect 25 new games to come. The news was revealed by Guerrilla Games co-founder, Herman Hulst, who is now in charge of PlayStation Studios and is on top of most of the games’ developments. According to Hulst, the upcoming games will originate from many regions, and they will be coming in “many different genres” to provide gamers with variety. This could be great for the PS5 line, as a lot of exclusives for the console have been slow to come out.
When it comes to ownership, the PlayStation Studios brand hasn’t exactly been clear about being a Sony product. Eric Lempel, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s head of global marketing, explained in an interview with GamesIndustry.biz that while PlayStation Studios holds the same name as the PlayStation console, it “doesn’t mean that [Sony] outright owns the developer.” According to Lempel, “…It just means we brought it up as a first-party. In a lot of cases, we don’t own the developer.”
It also looks like Sony will use this time to focus on the production of PlayStation 5 consoles. If you remember, there were stock issues with the PlayStation 5 when it first came out, and many gamers had to wait for months to get their own consoles. Jim Ryan, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s CEO, talked about how Sony will be doubling down on production this summer and that the company hopes to get its supply normalized soon.
The demand for the PlayStation 5, however, does not look like it will die down any time soon. Sony would have to continually speed up its production of the console until it meets consumer demand. Until then, we would just have to wait—both for its new roster of games and more available PlayStation 5 consoles.
