The best upcoming PS5 games: 2022, 2023, and beyond

The PlayStation 5 has been out for some time now, and its reception has been mostly positive. It includes lots of quality-of-life improvements over its predecessor, the PlayStation 4, such as faster load times, a solid-state drive (SSD) instead of a regular hard disk drive (HDD), and an improved controller thanks to the new DualSense. Having said all that, a console is only as good as the games available on it, and thankfully, the PS5 has you covered on that front as well.

While the machine already has a worthy library of great PS5 games, there are even more to look forward to, with some releasing as soon as this month while others are years away. In the video game world, it’s not uncommon to be aware of games that are still several years off, while it’s also normal for a new game to be revealed and launched within just a couple of months. In this comprehensive list, we’ll go through the major PS5 releases from 2022, leading up to 2023 and even beyond.

These are the best upcoming PS5 games to look forward to.

During the PS5’s reveal event, we got a tease for the sequel to 2018’s God of War. Now officially titled God of War: Ragnarokwe know it’ll be coming out in 2022, as revealed during the September 2021 PlayStation Showcase. While there still are a slew of questions about Ragnarok, we do know it’ll feature Freya and Thor as antagonists, along with an older Atreus. The 2021 trailer for this game showed off some gameplay, along with some imagery of new locales. Sony is gearing up for this game’s launch later this fall, and it’s easily one of the biggest releases of the year.

Many were shocked at this game’s announcement, as the original Warzone still needs a lot of work on the development side. But yes, Warzone 2.0 is coming at some point in 2022, featuring many changes from the original installment. We do know it’ll run on the same engine as Modern Warfare II, and both are being built from the ground up alongside one another. Warzone 2.0 will hopefully run more smoothly than its predecessor, with various quality-of-life improvements, along with new features as well. It’ll launch this fall.

Seeing as the Dead Space franchise was dormant for nearly a decade, it was up to Striking Distance Studios to give us a spiritual successor to Visceral’s beloved horror series with The Callisto Protocol. This third-person survival horror game is gearing up to be one of the scariest games of all time. We know it’ll send players to a space prison on Jupiter’s moon, Callisto — with the goal of surviving an alien invasion. It’s supposed to launch at the end of 2022.

The most striking thing about the new Need for Speed Unbound is the game’s art direction, which ditches realism in favor of a cel-shaded anime style. This is a huge change for the series and serves as a visual representation of a new era of Need for Speed. Beyond its excellent visuals, this game is exciting because it marks the return of Criterion Games, the studio known for developing the Burnout series and that also worked on Need for Speed games in the past. This game will have street races, an open world, and the beloved Heat System from Need for Speed Heat, so there’s a lot to look forward to with this new installment.

Unlike Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was critically acclaimed when it launched in 2015. So much so that it went on to win numerous awards and Game of the Year nods. As expected, CD Projekt Red will be releasing an enhanced version of the RPG for PS5, with improved visuals and lighting. Sadly, the team had to delay the new version of the game, likely due to the pandemic and other factors tied to Cyberpunk 2077‘s development. Nonetheless, we’ll likely get to play the enhanced version of The Witcher 3 in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Beyond graphics, the third-person action seems to be shaping up nicely, and the trailer features some remarkable monster designs. We’re not sure how the story will unfold — the trailer kept cutting back and forth between an old man in his home and an adventurer slaying beasts — but we can’t wait to get our hands on it.

After being in development hell for the better part of a decade, Dead Island 2 will finally launch in 2023. The game was first revealed at E3 2014 and has since undergone numerous developer changes. Currently, Dambuster Studios is leading development, and based on the game’s recent re-reveal, it seems Dead Island 2 is nearing completion. This installment will be comically violent, with a slew of RPG mechanics and cooperative play, building upon the features from the original 2011 game. The sequel’s tone seems to have remained consistent throughout its development, with an emphasis on ridiculousness rather than a grounded take on a zombie story.

Hailing from Electronic Arts and Omega Force — the studio best known for the Dynasty Warriors games — Wild Hearts is a most akin to Monster Hunter. In it, you and up to two other friends team up to take down massive beasts, each with their own distinct powers and fighting styles. The one thing about Wild Hearts that stands out from the Monster Hunter games is that it looks far more realistic and, in some ways, more vibrant. But Wild Hearts also does a fantastic job of onboarding the player, and thanks to its simplified UI and accessibility options, it could reach a large audience.

This game seems like it will follow in the footsteps of the Resident Evil 2 remake, giving us the same story with gameplay improvements and 4K visuals for modern consoles. It’ll launch in March 2023.

You will still be able to control other popular characters such as Wolverine, Iron Man, Captain America, and Ghost Rider, among others. Marvel’s Midnight Suns will play similarly to XCOM, so if you love those types of turn-based tactics games, you should keep your eye out for this one. Sadly, this game was delayed from October to the first half of 2023.

On top of that, it will be a PS5 console exclusive, meaning you’ll have to get a PS5 if you plan on playing it outside of the PC ecosystem. Final Fantasy XVI certainly looks jaw-dropping in the visual department. At the end of 2021, Final Fantasy XVI producer Naoki Yoshida revealed the game is behind schedule and has been delayed by “almost a half year,” due to COVID complications.

During the 2021 PlayStation Showcase, Sony finally revealed Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, the follow-up to one of 2018’s best games. We knew it was inevitable there would be a sequel, but it was nice to finally receive some confirmation of this. The game isn’t going to launch until 2023, but there’s a lot to be excited about based on the announcement trailer. For one, we know Miles Morales will fight alongside Peter Parker. It’s unclear how this will work, though — if we’ll get to play as one or the other, or both — but either way, we’ll be in for a good time. We also know Venom will make an appearance, as shown in the trailer, but fans also pointed out that Kraven the Hunter will likely play a part, as well. The character can be heard narrating the trailer. It’ll be a while before Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is ready to play, but judging by this list, there’s no shortage of games to play in the meantime.

While the developers say that everything is going well with Quantum Error, it’s still up in the air whether it will be a launch title. The “cosmic horror shooter” is hoping to prove that zombies never go out of style and features one of the most robust physics systems the industry has seen. It’s scheduled to release at an unspecified date.

While it’s still very early in development, we do know a new Mass Effect game is coming from BioWare. Following its official reveal at The Game Awards 2020, there is a slew of questions fans have about the project — most importantly, how it will tie to the original trilogy. In the trailer, we got to see Liara, one of the main characters from the original trilogy, though it’s unclear when in the timeline this new game will take place and what this character’s role will be. There are lots of questions the community has, but one thing’s for sure: You shouldn’t expect to play this one for quite some time — possibly as late as 2024.

Coming from Hitman developer IO Interactive, the team is now working on a James Bond game under the working title Project 007. It will be an original story with a new Bond character, divorced from any of the likenesses of previous actors. The team expects this to be part of a trilogy of games, though not much else is known about the project(s). Much like a lot of the games on this list, Project 007 likely won’t launch for a few years.

Project Eve is a new action game from developer Shift Up Corporation. It’s reminiscent of Bayonetta, with action at the forefront. It will feature a free-flow combat system wherein you must attack, dodge, and defend, making split-second decisions on the fly. Project Eve will include DualSense features such as haptic feedback that will increase the immersion. This one has been in development for a while now, so we’re hoping it’s ready to launch sometime in 2022.

Kicking off the 2021 PlayStation Showcase was the announcement of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake. It’s still very early in development and will likely be a while before it’s ready to launch. The original Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic launched for Xbox in 2003 and was developed by BioWare, the team behind Mass Effect and Dragon Age. The remake is being handled by Aspyr, the studio that developed remasters of Star Wars: Episode I — Racer, Star Wars: Jedi Knight — Jedi Academy, and Star Wars: Republic Commando. Interestingly, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake will be a PS5 timed console exclusive, though it’s unclear for how long. In 2022, it was reportedly delayed indefinitely, so we likely won’t get to play this game any time soon.

Now that EA’s exclusive Star Wars deal has expired, other companies — such as Ubisoft — are free to work on games within the beloved franchise. We know Ubisoft Massive is now developing an open-world Star Wars game under the Lucasfilm Games umbrella. This will be the first Star Wars game published by a company other than EA since 2013. It’s unknown when it’ll launch, but our guess is 2024.

It’s been forever since we last walked the vampire-ridden streets of Bloodlines, and we can’t wait to see how much has changed during that time. Recent footage of the game displayed more chaos, a grittier Seattle locale, and a deep, branching storyline. Unfortunately, the game suffered a recent delay, pushing it to an unknown release window.
