PS5: The release schedule of the next exclusive products (Horizon Forbidden West, R & C Rift Apart, GT7, GoW)

Sony is kicking off the next generation with a bang. Crowned with its status as the current generation champion (nearly 110 million PS4s sold), Sony has managed to get three first-party games for the launch of its PS5 (Spider Man Morales, Sackboy Adventure, Astro) and a major disqualified (temporarily?) out of the studio with Demon’s Souls. Rachet & Clank Rift Apart finally “slipped” in 2021 and will join the cohort of major releases already announced for next year. Given this planned avalanche of titles, Sony wanted to clarify the release schedule for the next PS5 first-party games.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Returnal and Gran Turismo 7 will be available in the first half of 2021. Horizon Forbidden West (also on PS4) is slated for the second half of 2021. Sony, on the other hand, makes no mention of GoW, which in itself is hardly surprising. The game probably doesn’t have much to show off what it looks like (start of development) but most of all it seems extremely unlikely that it will actually be released next year …
