Best Upcoming PS5 Games in 2021/2022

13 – Forspoken

Square Enix

First revealed as Project Athia, Forspoken is a game we’re only just starting to learn about. However ever since our first reveal, it’s been clear that the title is one of the most jaw-dropping games we’ve ever seen.

Focussing on fluid terrain traversal, speed, and style, the open-world title aims to show off the power of the PS5 like nothing before.

Players will take control of Frey Holland, a young woman who is transported from New York City to the fantasy world of Athia. Here, she will learn to use magical powers to adventure through it and find her way home.

Release Date: Spring 2022
Developer: Luminous Productions
Publisher: Square Enix
Genre: Action RPG

12 – Battlefield 2042

EA

Although many players are unhappy with the Battlefield 2042 Beta, we’re still cautiously optimistic about the upcoming FPS title. DICE is taking on its biggest Battlefield project to date, with 3 modes to choose from.

Whether you’re experiencing all-out warfare in classic Battlefield multiplayer, experiencing the ultimate sandbox in Battlefield Portal, or playing the nail-biting new Hazard Zone game mode, there’s plenty to experience.

It’s safe to say that if Battlefield 2042 works out its biggest issues, it’ll be an outstanding title at launch. And with the game’s recent delay, DICE has more time to get the game ready for release day.

Release Date: November 19, 2021
Developer:
DICE

EA
Genre: FPS

11 – GTA 5 Expanded & Enhanced

Rockstar Games

It’s been well over a year since the reveal of GTA 5 Expanded & Enhanced and we still don’t know exactly what to expect. Rockstar Games is teasing a major upgrade to the Grand Theft Auto title we know well, and we hope it’s worth the wait.

At this point, simple graphical upgrades aren’t going to cut it for fans, despite GTA 5 selling incredibly well to this day. We can’t wait to see what ‘expanded’ content the developer has in store for us.

What’s more, the new reveal of the GTA Trilogy remasters has fans itching to see what the older titles look like on next-gen consoles.

Release Date: March 2022
Developer: Rockstar North
Publisher: Rockstar Games
Genre: Action-Adventure

10 – Gran Turismo 7

Gran Turismo 7
Sony

Gran Turismo 7 aims to be the best next-gen racing game on the market, although it has some fierce competition!

Sony promises a ‘staggering collection of game modes’ coming to the title, including fan-favorites such as GT Campaign, Arcade, and Driving School. What’s more, with over 420 cars available from day one, there’s plenty of content to enjoy right out of the game.

Each car has, of course, been rendered in unparalleled detail, and even aims to feel different when handing in over 90 track routes, complete with dynamic weather conditions.

Release Date: March 4, 2022
Developer: Polyphony Digital
Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Genre: Racing, Driving-Sim

9 – Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora

Avatar Frontiers of Pandora
Ubisoft

The surprise reveal of Ubisoft’s Avatar title was one of the most shocking unveils in recent history. Already, the reveal trailer is surpassing 7.2 million views and it’s clear there’s a market for the game.

Our return to Pandora will coincide with the release of Avatar 2 in 2022, which is sure to drive hype to the project. And while we’re yet to see any gameplay, the footage we’ve seen so far does look beautiful.

Avatar Frontiers of Pandora aims to be a true next-gen title, featuring an open-world Pandora to explore. The action-adventure game will allow players to explore the stunning environments from a first-person perspective.

Release Date: 2022
Developer: Massive Entertainment
Publisher: Ubisoft
Genre: Action-Adventure

8 – Elden Ring

FromSoftware

Referred to lovingly as ‘Big Dark Souls’ by its fanbase, Elden Ring aims to be the greatest FromSoftware title to date. For the first time ever, a Souls title is heading open-world, allowing players to choose their path for themselves in a world brought forth from the minds of Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R.R. Martin.

We just got a new Elden Ring gameplay leak and it’s safe to say that the game looks gorgeous. Of course, its equally gorgeous boss fights will undoubtedly have gamers screaming in anger as the franchise is notorious for its difficulty level.

Don’t expect this game to be a relaxing journey. But there’s a quality about FromSoftware’s games that other developers are unable to replicate – and they’re always worth playing.

Release Date: February 25, 2022
Developer: FromSoftware Inc
Publisher: BANDAI NAMCO
Genre: Action RPG

7 – Horizon Forbidden West

Horizon Forbidden West Editions Revealed, Pre-Orders Live Now
Guerrilla Games

The long-awaited sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn can’t come soon enough! That said, we recently got the confirmation that Horizon Forbidden West is being delayed, now releasing in 2022.

Like its predecessor, Horizon Forbidden West will feature Aloy in her adventures through a world overrun by machines. And Forbidden West’s upgrades on PS5 make it an essential next-gen title to own.

What’s more, these Horizon Forbidden West collectors editions are absolutely insane, which is why they’re so hard to come by. Guerrilla Games clearly has an eye for quality and it shines through in all of its work, from packaging to product.

Release Date: February 18, 2022
Developer: Guerrilla Games
Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Genre: Action RPG

6 – Ghostwire Tokyo

Bethesda Softworks

Ever since we first saw footage of Ghostwire Tokyo, it shot right to the top end of our most anticipated PS5 games list. In this action-adventure title, most of Tokyo’s residents have disappeared, and otherworldly spirits known as Visitors are invading the city.

Despite having horror elements, this isn’t a pure horror title. The player will be able to utilize a ‘karate meets magic’ combat system to battle the spirits and defeat them with takedown moves.

Despite being published by Bethesda Softworks, Ghostwire Tokyo will be exclusive to PS5 for a year at launch, as well as coming to PC.

Release Date: 2022
Developer: Tango Gameworks
Publisher: Bethesda Softworks
Genre: Action-Adventure

5 – Final Fantasy 16

Square Enix

Known as Final Fantasy XVI, the 16th mainline title in the long-running franchise is highly anticipated by fans around the globe.

In the fantasy world of Valisthea, people live comfortably thanks to mountains known as the Mothercrystals. Clive Rosfield, firstborn of the Archduke of Rosaria, will embark on a quest for revenge, alongside his party of companions.

Final Fantasy 16 will be a timed console exclusive for PS5, which is a huge get for Sony. The game’s fanbase is so dedicated that we imagine some gamers will shell out the cash just for a chance to play the new Final Fantasy on launch day.

Release Date: Unknown
Developer: Square Enix
Publisher: Square Enix
Genre: Action RPG

4 – Marvel’s Wolverine

Wolverine
Insomniac Games

The announcement of Marvel’s Wolverine was one a lot of fans didn’t see coming, but it was one of the most exciting reveals of the recent PlayStation Showcase.

Sony is already confirming that Wolverine will be a PS5 exclusive title, and we can’t wait to see what that means for the game. Developed by Insomniac Games, known for Marvel’s Spider-Man and Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, we can expect insane visuals and polished, smooth gameplay.

We can’t wait to see how combat in Wolverine compares to PlayStation’s other mainline Marvel title! But it’ll be a long wait before we get that chance.

Release Date: Unknown
Developer: Insomniac Games
Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Genre: Action-Adventure

3 – Hogwarts Legacy

Warner Bros

For the first time in years, we’re returning to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Hogwarts Legacy. Create your Hogwarts student and attend the school as a house of your choice.

We’ll have a chance to experience Hogwarts in 1800s, long before the events of the books. And not only will you be able to attend class, master ancient magic, and discover fantastic beasts, you’ll also be able to make decisions that ultimately decide the fate of the Wizarding World itself.

It’s clear that fans are eager to see more from this game, with over 25 million views on its reveal trailer to date. But since the title’s delay to 2022, we’re yet to get any further trailers from Portkey Games.

Release Date: 2022
Developer: Portkey Games
Publisher: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
Genre: Action RPG

2 – God of War Ragnarok

God of War Ragnarok
Santa Monica Studio

Recently, we found out exactly why God of War Ragnarok was delayed. It’s been a long time coming, but finally, Kratos’ adventure in Norse mythology is reaching its conclusion.

This time Kratos and Atreus set out to prevent Ragnarok’s coming, 3 years after the events of the first game. In their adventures, the duo will encounter Norse God of War, Tyr, and a series of old friends and foes as they travel through the nine realms.

Although gamers are angry about Thor being fat in Ragnarok, reception has been nothing but positive for the upcoming title. And we can’t wait to see what Santa Monica Studio has in store for us this time.

Release Date: 2022
Developer: Santa Monica Studio
Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Genre: Action-Adventure

1- Marvel’s Spider-Man 2

Spider-Man 2
Insomniac Games

Finally, at the top of our list of most anticipated PS5 games, it can be none other than Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. The upcoming sequel by Insomniac Games is the true successor that the original title deserves.

This time, players will follow both Peter Parker and Miles Morales as they battle against new threats to New York City. In Spider-Man 2’s newest trailer, we saw the reveal of Venom, meaning the symbiote is going to be a large part of the upcoming title.

And since Insomniac believes that Miles Morales was only scratching the surface of the PS5‘s power, we imagine that this game will truly blow fans away.

Release Date: 2023
Developer: Insomniac Games
Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Genre: Action-Adventure

By the time some of these games release, we’ll likely get our first official news about the PS5 Pro!

And rumor has it this new PlayStation Studio has an exciting next-gen title in the works too!
