Sony has announced rough release dates for a number PS5 exclusives, with Kena: Bridge Of Spirits out in March but Capcom’s Pragmata delayed.
There might not be any news on when new stock of the console is arriving, but Sony has announced rough release dates for a number of upcoming PlayStation 5 exclusives.
The revelations don’t come through the normal channels but as part of a sizzle reel for Sony’s CES 2021 keynote speech. The CES (Consumer Electronics Show) rarely has much to do with video games – and a lot of the video is concerned with Sony’s other businesses – but surprisingly it does feature a list of target release dates that were previously unknown.
It’s mostly good news too, with much-fancied indie title Kena: Bridge Of Spirits due out this March and Annapurna Interactive’s Solar Ash scheduled for June.
Fellow indie title Little Devil Inside is planned for July and Stray, where you play as a cat in a world ruled by robots, is down for this October.
Also due in October is Ghostwire: Tokyo, from Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami’s studio Tango Gameworks.
Together with Deathloop (due May 21), Ghostwire: Tokyo was signed up as a timed PlayStation 5 exclusive before Microsoft bought Tango Gameworks owner Bethesda last year.
Other more distant titles include Square Enix’s mysterious Project Athia, which is scheduled for January 2022.
The bad news is that Capcom’s sci-fi title Pragmata has been pushed back a year to 2023, but since so little was known about that anyway it’s hard to be too invested at the moment.
Most of these games have only been mentioned once, during the E3-esque PlayStation 5 showcase last June, and this is the first update since then.
All the games are at least timed PlayStation 5 console exclusives, although most of them will also be released on PC.
Sony has since removed the list of release dates from the trailer, suggesting that perhaps they weren’t quite as confident in them as first seemed.
Here’s how it appeared in the original version though:
