The news came during Sony's CES 2021 conference, where a graphic confirmed a slew of release dates and release windows for PS5 games, some of which had already been dated. Here are the PS5 game release dates we hadn't heard about until today, courtesy of industry analyst Daniel Ahmad.
- Returnal - 03/19/21
- Pragmata - 2023
- Solar Ash - June 2021
- Kena: Bridge of Spirits - March 2021
- Stray - October 2021
- Ghostwire Tokyo - October 2021
- Little Devil inside - July 2021
- Project Athia - January 2022
- Hitman III - January 2021
We've suspected Ember Lab's enchanting Kena: Bridge of Spirits would release in March for a bit now, but it's good to have official confirmation from Sony. The Returnal release date should please horror fans looking forward to the upcoming PS5 exclusive. Meanwhile, Pragmata has been delayed from its original 2022 release window to 2023. Stray, which I'll remind you is a game where you get to navigate a futuristic world overrun by robots as a common house cat, is officially due to launch in October. Ghostwire: Tokyo, first revealed during Bethesda's E3 2019 showcase, is another intriguing title landing in October.
It's curious that Project Athia, a game with a healthy load of expectations resting on its shoulders, is releasing in January. Though, there's always the chance that Sony shuffles things around - this info simply indicates the publisher's current release plans for each game.
While we wait on the above releases, here are the best PS5 games to play right now.
