Developer: Avalanche
Publisher:
Warner Bros. Games
Release date: February 10, 2023

Set before the events of the books in the 1800s at the famous Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry and the world beyond, Hogwarts Legacy is described as an open-world RPG that will take you on an adventure in the Harry Potter universe. Added to the list of upcoming PS5 games for 2023 after a delay, Adrian Ropp, head of Avalance, wrote in a blog post (opens in new tab) on PlayStation's official website that the next-gen console will let create immersive experiences that will let "a player practically feel the terror of Inferi bearing down upon them" or "sense the ground rumbling beneath them as a heard of angry centaurs surrounds them".  

Wild Hearts

Developer: Omega Force
Publisher: EA
Release date: February 17, 2023 

Wild Hearts is born out of a new partnership between EA and Omega Force, the developer behind the Dynasty Warriors series. This brand new hunting game is essentially EA's attempt to topple Monster Hunter off of its throne. You'll need to team up with two other friends, gear up to head into sprawling untamed wilds, and then battle it out with some massively monstrous creatures. It looks great. 

Like a Dragon – Ishin

Developer: Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio
Publisher: Sega
Release date: February 21, 2023

Cult classic Ryū ga Gotoku Ishin! is finally making its way to the West. Having first launched in 2014 for PS3 and PS4, the Yakuza series spin-off will be called Like a Dragon – Ishin. Sega promises that the title is being built from the ground up to take advantage of the PS5 technology, much needed given that this is effectively a Yakuza game set in the samurai era instead of modern-day Japan. It looks great, and we can't wait to play in early 2023. 

Atomic Heart

Developer: Mundfish
Publisher: Focus Entertainment
Release date: February 21, 2023

Horror fans should rejoice to hear that Mundfish is bringing Atomic Heart to next-gen consoles. The wild-looking sci-fi horror game only rears its grotesque head every so often, but when it does, the world collectively gasps with shock and intrigue. Its monsters are unforgettable, we've already seen a good range of unique alien weapons, and the story already has us asking more questions than we have answers. Atomic Heart looks incredibly ambitious for a smaller studio, and we can't wait to see if it lands the jump on PS5.

Horizon: Call of the Mountain

Publisher: PlayStation Studios
Release date: February 22, 2023

Sony is launching PSVR 2 on February 22, and Horizon: Call of the Mountain is looking like the game to sell us on the promise and potential of the new-gen virtual reality headset. Boasting incredible visuals and intuitive combat, Horizon: Call of the Mountain will give us an entirely new perspective on the world and an opportunity to see just how imposing those robot dinosaurs really are. 

Destiny 2: Lightfall

Developer: Bungie

Release date: February 28, 2023

The next Destiny 2 expansion is set to launch on February 28, and it may just be Bungie's most ambitious yet. Destiny 2 Lightfall is introducing big changes to help new and returning players, while also delivering a new destination, Raid, dungeons, and weapons for those that have been with the game from the beginning. Destiny 2 Lightfall is going to be an unmissable FPS experience for 2023. 

Resident Evil 4 Remake

Release date: March 24, 2023

Resident Evil 4 is getting a remake and it's already got a release date. It's set to be a reimagining of the original game, rather than a like-for-like remake. According to Capcom, the developer is "reimagining the storyline of the game while keeping the essence of its direction, modernizing the graphics and updating the controls to a modern standard". Resident Evil 4 Remake is going to be stunning - and horrific. 

Dead Island 2

Developer: Dambuster Studios
Publisher: Deep Silver
Release date: April 28, 2023

Dead Island is officially on the way. Set in sunny downtown LA, more pulpy, humored filled action is coming, with plenty of Zombie slaying, of course. With a slick cinematic trailer, followed by gameplay footage shown during Gamescom Opening Night Live, Dead Island 2 is "all about experimenting with your preferred zombie-killing methods", whether that be melee, guns, and more. Along with the initial reveal, we also got a release date which means we won't have to wait too long for the zombie-killing to commence. 

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

Developer: Respawn Entertainment
Publisher: EA
Release date: April 28, 2023

Cal Kestis and BD-1 are back in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, the follow-up to the brilliant Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Set five years after the original game, it seems like something rather sinister is going down in Star Wars town. Although details are light beyond the teaser trailer, it seems Cal's lightsaber has fallen into the wrong hands, and things aren't great for our Jedi in hiding. 

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League

Developer: Rocksteady
Publisher: Warner Bros
Release date: May 26, 2023

Rocksteady is continuing its work on the Batman: Arkham series but taking a detour into Suicide Squad territory. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a brand new sotry, with 1-4 player co-op, an evil Superman, and four playable characters. These take the form of Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark, all of which come with their own unique weapons, and the option to switch between them at any time. 

Street Fighter 6

Release date: June 2, 2023

Street Fighter 6 has now had a full reveal, following on from the rather steamy teaser. It's going to feature three different modes. Fighting Ground is your classic Street Fighter experience, but that's going to be complimented by World Tour, which is an immersive single-player campaign. There's also a Battle Hub too, which furthers the multiplayer experience.

Diablo 4

Developer: Blizzard
Publisher: Activision
Release date: June 6, 2023

As per its gameplay outing during E3 2022, Diablo 4 looks dark, foreboding and terrifying – which is exactly everything we want from Blizzard's upcoming dungeon crawling action role-playing game. With five classes available at launch in its Necromancers, Barbarians, Sorceresses, Rogues, and Druids, this looks every bit a sequel ten years in the making, and now with a loose 2023 launch date, we're certain fans of the series are as excited now as ever. First officially revealed at BlizzCon 2019, expect more and more of this in the coming months as Diablo 4 marches towards launch.

Final Fantasy 16

Developer: In-house

Release date: June 6, 2023

Final Fantasy 16 is going to be a console exclusive for the PS5, and is set to be an unmissable RPG for 2023. Produced by Final Fantasy 14 director Naoki Yoshida and directed by Hiroshi Takai, FF16 will return to the fantasy roots of the franchise as it looks to tell a story about a world at war, ancient summons, and mysterious crystals. Final Fantasy 16 is pulling its focus onto a single protagonist, a sole character you will control in the world and in combat as AI companions join you for the ride.

Release date: Early 2023

An open-world action role-player, Flintlock is being made by Ashen developer A44. Blending up close and personal melee axe play and firearms at range, this third person adventure looked stunning during its gameplay showcase at E3 2022, and we can't wait to see more between now and its tentative "early 2023" release date. Starring protagonist Nor and her companion, Enki, the pair are said to "embark on an epic journey of vengeance, gunpowder, and magic in humanity’s last stand." Sound good? We think so too.

Developer: Ubisoft Bordeaux 
Publisher: Ubisoft
Release date: TBC 2023

Assassin's Creed Mirage is taking the series back to where it all began. Assassin's Creed has spent the last five years exploring increasingly large open worlds and incorporating more intricate action-RPG elements into its design, making a more contained adventure sound quite appealing. Mirage is going to pay homage to the adventures of Altair and Ezio by leaning on the concepts that once made Assassin's Creed so beloved to begin with – parkour, stealth, and assassinations. 

Atlas Fallen

Everywhere is the new upcoming "multi-world" game first revealed at Gamescom Opening Night Live. Developed by Build a Rocket Boy with former Rockstar president Leslie Benzie on the project, we got a very early look at the project, which, according to the official site, "seamlessly blends gameplay, adventure, creativity and discovery in an all-new multi-world gaming experience", that's claims to redefine "how players connect with one another and with the digital world around them." Since the initial reveal was shrouded in mystery, no platforms were announced, but we assume it's set to come to PS5.

Settle in for the evening and prepare for another country retreat in the Layers of Fear universe. Layers of Fears (that's plural) is an updated and enhanced version of Bloober Team's OG horror venture from 2016, Layers of Fear, that folds in its 'Inheritance' DLC and the original's indirect sequel, Layers of Fear 2. Built in Unreal Engine 5, the old Shining-esque mansion is more terrifying than you remember, but houses a similar number of melting paintings and mind-bending haunted hallways. Said to expand on the original game's story, expect even more psychedelic, toe-curling horror when Layers of Fears lands at some point in 2023. 

Marvel's Spider-Man 2

During the September 2021 PlayStation showcase, a surprise trailer dropped for Marvel's Spider-Man 2, coming exclusively to PS5 sometime in 2023. As a sequel that's set to continue on the journey of both Peter Parker and Miles Morales, who could forget seeing another very familiar face. Yes, Venom is going to feature as the villain of the new web-slinging adventures. In a blog post (opens in new tab), Sony and Insomniac also confirmed that there will be shiny new suits, new abilities, and a very human story at the heart of your superhero antics.

TBC 2023

Capcom revealed a mysterious new game called Pragmata that leaves more questions than it answers, but certainly piqued a lot of interest when it was added to the upcoming PS5 games list. Described as a "thought-provoking game", the trailer shows someone in what looks like a space suit in a futuristic setting, where they encounter a young girl and holo-cat. While it won't be coming until 2023, we're certainly eager to learn more about this rather enigmatic adventure.

Tchia is a charming indie gem set to arrive on PS5 sometime in 2023. From developer Awaceb, the open-world tropical adventure is inspired by New Caledonia, and includes some very interesting abilities - such a soul jumping power that lets protagonist Tchia take control of objects and animals. During the PlayStation showcase, we got to see how you can become a dog and even a coconut as you explore the sandbox world. Along with free-climbing, and playing a tune on your ukulele, Tchia certainly looks like one to watch out for. 

Skull and Bones

Release date: TBC 2023

What does Black Flag look like without Assassin's Creed? It's a great question, and something Ubisoft Singapore will be answering this November when Skull and Bones finally releases into open waters. This tactical action game has been in development for almost a decade, originally surfacing because of how well the sailing elements of Assassin's Creed: Black Flag were received. What exists now is an open world adventure where you'll captain a fully customizable pirate ship, battling it out with other players across the Indian Ocean.

Little Devil Inside first began life on Kickstarter back in 2015. Fast forward five years later and we see a debut trailer during the PS5 reveal stream with the news that it will be a timed exclusive. As an RPG with survival elements, Little Devil inside is set in the "Victorian-like" era in a semi-open world. The trailer showed off a whole host of monsters and also gave us brief glimpses of some of the combat elements and features. It was easily one of the biggest surprises of the recent showcase. 

Forever Skies

Release date: TBC 2023

New studio Far From Home is coming swinging out of the gates with an ambitious project that depicts a world devastated by climate change after humanity's inaction. Forever Skies sees the player descend into a now environmentally-hostile Earth inside an advanced zeppelin. There will be light combat, but it's mostly about surviving through resource management, crafting, and puzzle-solving. The aircraft itself will also be key to your survival and could hold the answer to repairing the ecological damage done to Earth. The studio is made up of developers from Techland (Dying Light, Dead Island), The Farm 51 (Chernobylite), Bloober Team (Layers of Fear, Blair Witch), and Larian Studios (Divinity: Original Sin, Baldur's Gate 3), so plenty of reputable talent is on board, making Forever Skies even more enticing.

Rise of the Ronin is an all-new PS5 exclusive being developed by Team Ninja. Rise of the Ronin is a combat focused open-world action RPG which takes place in late 19th century Japan – during a period of great change known as "Bakumatsu". The game looks fantastic already, and that's even with it not launching until 2024. Team Ninja is one of the masters of creating samurai and ninja action games, so this will be one that's worth watching. 

 Crash Team Rumble

The 2014 title, Lords of the Fallen, is getting a reboot and it looks pretty epic.

Release date: TBC 

If there's any one thing the Assassin's Creed fan base can agree on, it's that a game set in feudal Japan is long overdue. That's why Assassin's Creed Codename Red has gotten the world so excited, with this new flagship entry to the series from Assassin's Creed Odyssey developer Ubisoft Quebec set to let us live out a shinobi fantasy. Assassin's Creed Red is thought to be in early development, so there's a good chance we won't see this one until 2024 at the earliest. 

Assassin's Creed Hexe

Developer: Ubisoft Montreal

Release date: TBC 

Ubisoft Montreal – the birthplace of Assassin's Creed – is working on a very different type of entry to the series. Following the release of Assassin's Creed Valhalla in 2020, the studio has been quietly working on Assassin's Creed Codename Hexe under the leadership of Watch Dogs Legion's creative director Clint Hocking. While it's thought to be in early development, an early tease suggests a far darker setting that could revolve around Europe's bloody 16th century witch trials. Sadly, there's a good chance we'll be waiting until 2024 and beyond for this one. 

Assassin's Creed Infinity

Assassin's Creed Infinity remains one of the most mysterious projects in development at Ubisoft. This cross-studio collaboration sees Ubisoft Montreal (Assassin's Creed Valhalla) and Ubisoft Quebec (Assassin's Creed Odyssey) working more closely to shape and define the future of this long-running series. While details are light on the ground, it's expected that Assassin's Creed Infinity will act as an interactive hub, connecting players and future AC experiences – like Codename Red and Codename Hexe – into one seamless, evolving platform. Whatever it is, we can't wait to see more.

Undoubtedly one of the biggest surprises of the PlayStation September 2021 showcase came in the shape of those famous adamantium claws belonging to none other than Wolverine. Yes, a new standalone Marvel's Wolverine game is currently in early development. While we're light on details for the moment, we do know Brian Horton is Wolverine's creative director and Cameron Christian is game director. Horton was creative director on Spider-Man Miles Morales and has also worked on games such as Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider. Christian previously worked on Spider-Man and Spider-Man Miles Morales, as well as other titles such as Sunset Overdrive.  Insomniac revealed (opens in new tab) its goal is to "respect the DNA of what makes the character so popular, but also try to make it feel fresh" and reflect the studio's spirit.

Developer: MachineGames
Publisher: Lucasfilm Games / Bethesda
Release date: TBC

Bethesda studio MachineGames is working on a brand new Indiana Jones game, in conjunction with the newly established Lucasfilm Games. All we've had so far is a tiny teaser trailer, which is more matte painting than gameplay footage. But, from it, we've deduced that it's probably set in Rome in 1937, which would place the game after Raiders of the Lost Ark and the Temple of Doom, and yet before The Last Crusade. It seems to involve ancient stone circles and standing stones, and potentially even a lost race of giant cyclops. Bethesda says we'll be waiting a while for more info though - including 100% confirmation of whether it is on PS5, seeing as it's a Bethesda game. 

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2

Looking for a game with a bit of extra bite? Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 puts you in the seedy underbelly of Seattle, which should suit you just fine as a vampire ready to test out your new fangs. Turned as an act of vampire terrorism during the 'Mass Embrace', you'll soon get caught up in vampire faction politics, where you're still just trying to deal with your new way of life. This is an RPG at its core too, filled with player choices, a strong narrative, and branching dialogue options too.

Another fresh title coming out of the new Lucasfilm Games, this is an open-world Star Wars title from Ubisoft's Massive Entertainment. We don't know much about the Ubisoft Star Wars game yet, as it's clearly in very early stages of development, but it will run on Massive's custom Snowdrop Engine. We're expecting it to be a photorealistic action-adventure with sprinklings of RPG elements, a la The Division, but obviously set in Star Wars lore. No platforms have officially been confirmed, but expect it to be released on PS5 whenever it does arrive.

Ah, the Elder Scrolls 6 (opens in new tab). The 37-second trailer that blew the world's mind at E3 2018. The game that we know nothing about beyond this same trailer, that is in development somewhere within Bethesda Game Studios along with Starfield. Because it is so far away from release, you can bet your bottom coin that it's going to appear - at some point - on the PS5 (although hopefully not whatever the PS6 could be).

Developer: BioWare

Release date: TBC

Although technically no platforms have been announced for Dragon Age 4 - or whatever the next Dragon Age is officially called - at this point it would seem odd not to think of it as an upcoming PS5 game. We may not have a release date yet, but at least we know that Solas and co are making a return at some point in the future. What we have seen is some glorious concept art, and the confirmation that it will continue on from where Dragon Age: Inquisition left off. 

New Mass Effect

Developer: BioWare

Release date: TBC

It might be quite a way off release, but that isn't going to stop us being ridiculously overexcited for a brand new Mass Effect game - aka Mass Effect 5. Seemingly picking up after the events of Mass Effect 3, we'll be seeing some old faces return and some plot lines picked back up. Of course, the big question of whether Shepard will return remains, but we're ready for everything.

Quantum Error

Release date: TBC

A multiple Future Games Show alum, Quantum Error is an upcoming next-gen sci-fi horror shooter coming to PS5 at an undisclosed date. With shades of Half-Life, Doom, and Dead Space, you'll control a skilled fireman from a first-person perspective as you hack at and blast away deep space mutants. Watching the recent 4K PS5 trailer (opens in new tab) from the Future Games Show, you'd never believe a team of just four developers is working on Quantum Error.

Tekken 8

Release date: TBC

Bandai Namco games is hard at work on Tekken 8. It's been seven long years since the release of Tekken 7, so a sequel is long overdue. While the developer wasn't ready to share a release date, it did reveal the game with footage rendered in-engine – showcasing our first look at the returning story mode. Tekken 8 is looking great, though we do hope we won't be waiting years to play this upcoming PS5 game.

Judas

Release date: TBC

BioShock creator Ken Levine has finally revealed his new project - Judas. With seriously strong BioShock vibes, Judas is a single-player narrative title where you must try to escape a disintegrating starship. You must survive by either making or breaking alliances with the other people on the ship, your so-called worst enemies. You're playing as the titular Judas, who is described as "mysterious and troubled", and seemingly has powers in her left hand that she can switch out - again very Bioshock in space vibes all round.

Death Stranding 2

Developer: Kojima Productions
Publisher: Sony Entertainment
Release date: TBC

Kojima Productions is back with Death Stranding 2, and although Kojima is claiming that it's just a working title for now, it is a sequel to the 2019 title. The teaser trailer shown at the Game Awards 2022 featured Fragile protecting what we assume to be a toddler version of BB, a greying Sam Porter Bridges, and a ship that looked very much like the Metal Gear Rex. Concrete details right now are scarce, but we do know that the cast currently includes Norman Reedus, Léa Seydoux, Elle Fanning, Shioli Kutsuna, and Troy Baker.

Hellboy: Web of Wyrd

Developer: Upstream Arcade
Publisher: Good Shepherd Entertainment
Release date: TBC

Hellboy: Web of Wyrd looks insanely cool. This new roguelite action-adventure has been created in partnership with Dark Horse Comics and creator Mike Mignola and you can absolutely tell. It's an original story too, with Lance Reddick voicing Hellboy himself, which will take us on a series of adventures all tied to the legacy of the Butterfly House. The combat is at the core, and it's all about heavy-weight melee attacks combined with the range of Hellboy's arsenal. 

Remnant 2

Developer: Gunfire Games
Publisher: Gearbox Publishing
Release date: TBC

Remnant 2, as you might have guessed, is the sequel to Remnant: From the Ashes, and this time you can play solo or co-op with two other friends to fight the weird, rather horrible creatures and god-like bosses. You need to stop an evil from destroying not just the world, but reality itself. It has branching questlines, augments, crafting and loot reward systems so it sounds like there will be plenty of room for customization and replayability.

After Us

Developer: Piccolo
Publisher: Private Division
Release date: TBC

From the team that brought us Arise: A Simple Story comes After Us, which looks like another tale ready to seriously yank on our heartstrings. In it, you play as Gaia, the Spirit of Life, who must traverse the world to rescue the souls of animals made extinct by future mankind - like whales, eagles, deers, and even dachshunds. DACHSHUNDS. Hopefully though, you'll be able to restore life to the dead planet, which has transformed into a surrealistic landscape that looks pretty incredible.
