The first PS5 details have been revealed and it turns out one leaker had them correct along. Originating from December 2018, the source listed the specs as well as a list of games we could see on the Playstation 5.
What games will be on the PS5?
The leaker’s information on the next-gen Sony console went further than the console itself, also discussing future game releases. These include both exclusive and non-exclusive titles for Playstation.
Here’s each game listed in the leak, and what we know about them so far.
Non-exclusive PS5 games
Battlefield Bad Company 3
Battlefield Bad Company 3 was one of these details. The Bad Company series has gathered a cult following over the years. However, the last edition of the game, Battlefield Bad Company 2 was last seen in 2010.
Another non-exclusive game listed is simply Harry Potter. This is interesting revelation as a mainline Harry Potter game hasn’t been seen on console since 2011.
The highly anticipated mobile game: Harry Potter Wizard’s Unite is expected to release in 2019 – it will be interesting to see if this release relates to the apparent upcoming console version.
Interestingly, leaked footage of an apparent upcoming Harry Potter game appeared on YouTube in October 2018. The video was quickly blocked by Warner Bros but other footage has appeared since. Whether this is the same video as the one that was blocked is unknown. The game certainly looks like it’s designed for next generation consoles.
Then there is the big one, the game shrouded in secrecy, GTA 6. The leak of Grand Theft Auto 6 is huge gaming news. Information about the GTA map location, Sony Playstation exclusivity and whether it will release on PS4 was all listed by the leaker.
Assassin’s Creed is another touted release which shouldn’t come as overly surprising. Ubisoft’s popular series has had a new game on an almost yearly basis since its initial release in 2007.
Exclusive PS5 games
This part of the leak is somewhat confusing as the heading states “PS4 exclusive launch games”. Given the below games, we’re going to assume that it’s a typo and it should be PS5.
The first game listed is a virtual reality game: Gran Turismo 7 VR. Given the past graphical fidelity of Gran Turismo games, and it’s Playstation exclusivity, this could be a flagship game for the PS5.
The Last of Us 2 and Ghost of Tsushima
The next two are more interesting unless they have been misinterpreted in translation. The Last of Us 2 Remaster and Ghost of Tsushima Remaster have yet to have their original versions released.
This means both of these games will launch for the Playstation 5 or that they are both being remastered after they’re made available on the PS4.
As always when reading leaks they should be treated so with scepticism. However, the fact this leaker did so accurately predict other details which were correct, it does make it an interesting and exciting prospect.
