Sony’s next-generation gaming console, PlayStation 5, was once thought to be but a beautiful yet unattainable dream. But avid fans are thrilled as the company revealed the first reliable details about this upcoming console not long ago, which materializes the hope of many fans.

Things are getting more exciting as the company officially announced the hardware release period in late 2020. Since then, speculation about the titles and games for the upcoming gaming device are buzzing within the community.

While it is confirmed that the PS5 will be backward compatible with PS4 games and PSVR devices, which means the entire library in both PS4 and PSVR games can be played on the nex-gen console, fans assumed that a number of the games are being developed exclusively for the upcoming PlayStation edition, and likely with extra power. Some of the rumored titles have been confirmed by the company as coming to the forthcoming platform, while others remain a mystery.

After several months of curious waiting amidst the buzzing rumors, fans finally got the revelation of the first confirmed game for the platform, which will be developed by the Texas-based independent video game developer, Bluepoint Games, Inc.

While the developer has yet to reveal the name of the game, its release date, or the gameplay concept, this announcement itself is quite unusual, considering that this is the first time that a company has openly come out and revealed that it is indeed working on a title for Sony’s upcoming console.

The developer team is well-known for its extremely well-received classic games, including the Metal Geat Solid HD game collection released back in 2011 for PS3, Uncharted in 2015 for PS4, as well as Shadow of the Colossus which was launched last year for PS4.

While no confirmation is obtained as of the moment, discussion early this year pointed out to the possibility of the developer’s next game being yet another remaking of a classic game.

Recently, Ubisoft has also openly revealed its plan to bring the current generation titles to the next-generation console. The company’s CEO, Yves Guillemot, has also confirmed the three rumored games that will be incorporated in the next-gen platform, namely, the “Rainbow Six Quarantine,” “Watch Dogs: Legion,” as well as “Gods and Monsters.”

Interestingly, the postponement of these titles’ set launch date until the next fiscal year, which begins around April next year, means that fans may get either a simultaneous launch across both current and next-generation platforms or several months apart.

Some other rumored games for the upcoming console include Cyberpunk 2077, Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima, the second version of The Last of Us, Starfield, GTA 6, Final Fantasy 7 (Remake), Horizon Zero Dawn II, Battlefield 6 and The Elder Scrolls 6.
