PlayStation 5: Every Game Confirmed To Launch On The PS5

PlayStation 5: Every Game Confirmed To Launch On The PS5
Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition is coming.

Now we have a confirmed release date and price for the PlayStation 5, you might be asking the next big question: what can I play on the console? While there’s a bunch of fantastic adventures coming your way, most of the epic next gen line-up is actually landing in 2021 due to a variety of delays. We don’t have an “official” launch line-up just yet but over the last few months we have seen a handful of games being announced for a release ‘at launch’ on November 12.

The recent PlayStation 5 showcase revealed a bunch of new games for the console’s launch line-up, including Devil May Cry 5: Special Editionan upgraded version of the original game giving Vergil his chance to shine. While he did technically appear as a main character in the base game, this is the first time in the game players will be able to take on the real Vergil’s moveset.

Also confirmed via the PlayStation 5 showcase event as a launch title was Fortniteeverybody’s favourite battle royale game.

With these two games confirmed, here’s how the PlayStation 5 launch line-up is looking:

  • Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla (next gen upgrade confirmed, but undated)
  • Astro’s Playroom (pre-loaded on the PlayStation 5)
  • Demon’s Souls
  • Destruction All-Stars
  • Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition
  • Fortnite
  • Godfall
  • Sackboy: A Big Adventure
  • Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Update 17/9: While Spider-Man: Miles Morales was still listed as a Holiday 2020 release title during the PS5 showcase, multiple retailers now list the launch date as November 12 alongside the PlayStation 5.

PlayStation 5 owners will also be able to play the majority of PlayStation 4 games on their console via disc or through Sony’s mysterious PlayStation Plus Collection, which offers classic PlayStation 4 hits including The Last of Us Remastered, Uncharted and more. Stay tuned for more news on this service and how it’ll operate.

There’s also a bunch of current gen games set for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X enhancements, although release dates for these upgrades are mostly unconfirmed.

The list currently includes Borderlands 3, The Witcher III and Cyberpunk 2077, but expect more to be announced in the wake of the big PlayStation 5 reveal. We’ll update this list as we learn more.


    • It is getting a next gen upgrade, but the date is yet to be confirmed. For example, same thing with Cyberpunk 2077 – the next gen upgrade is coming in 2021 so is technically not a launch title. I’ll make this clearer in the article.

    • I have a similar problem where I have a fair library of unplayed disc games for PS4 but I’d like to trade my Pro in for a digital edition of the PS5. Oh well, I guess I’ll just get a PS5 a bit later down the track. Nothing super enticing at launch anyway.

  • Covid related base line anxiety being through the roof I can’t guarantee I won’t crumble and preorder – Oh geeze, I just remembered I never got my deposit back from a Xbox One pre-order I never followed through on. JB got my $10 for no reason… but I digress. I never did get an Xbox One and didn’t pick up a PS4 until the first batch of major price drops in early 2015 when the AUD was above parity… sigh.
