A launch trailer for the PS5 shows off footage of upcoming first-party games, and in the process it narrows the release window for several games coming next year. Thanks to the trailer we have a better idea of when to expect Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Gran Turismo 7, Returnal, and Horizon: Forbidden West.
According to a disclaimer message that appears on screen as the footage plays, Gran Turismo, Ratchet & Clank, and Returnal are all anticipated to hit in the first half of 2021. Horizon is set for the second half of 2021. The disclaimer also notes that the other two games shown in the montage, Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Demon’s Souls, are coming on November 12–the PS5 launch day.
That makes Horizon likely as Sony’s big holiday game for next year, but it will release on PS4 as well as PS5. Ratchet & Clank, by contrast, is PS5-only.
With the PS5 mere days away now, we’ve gotten an up-close look at the hardware. Trophy lists are appearing online, which may reveal spoilers, so be careful out there. For more details, check out our PS5 hardware review and check out all of our PS5 game reviews.
