The most anticipated PS5 games for 2021

These are some of the most anticipated PS5 games for 2021, a year in which the new generation will formally kick-off thanks to major releases both exclusive and multiplatform on PlayStation and Xbox. Along the following lines, we will focus on those exclusive PlayStation 5 games that in 2021 will take advantage of the Sony machine.

PS5 is already on the market and a few weeks ago we offered you our opinion of the machine in the analysis, in addition to telling you what is special about the DualSense and what are the games with which, in our opinion, you should start the new generation of Sony.

The thing is about games, but now we are going to get involved in a different adventure, that of organizing the calendar and seeing which are the most anticipated PS5 games for 2021.

The truth is that, although the generation has officially begun, it will be in 2021 when we see those spectacular titles, the ones that WILL PUNCH the table and show us that we are, really, before a new generation.

God of War Ragnarok

After the excellent God of War of 2018 in which we find a Kratos that was the one from the original trilogy, but with family responsibilities that, now, take something seriously, a prominent beard and the usual bad grape, It was logical to think that with the success achieved, Sony Santa Monica would get to work on a direct sequel.

We do not know much about the new God of War 2, but it does seem that we will continue in Kratos’ boots and that the Nordic atmosphere will be maintained. We have only seen a teaser with the classic logo of the saga, but that is enough for more than one of us to get many illusions and have God of War Ragnarok as one of the favorite PS5 games for 2021.

Horizon 2: Forbidden West

And if God of War was a success, Horizon Zero Dawn even more so. Until the arrival of Ghost of Tsushima, it had remained Sony’s most successful new IP in recent years, and that’s saying a lot. Guerrilla went from developing first-person shooters (with a Killzone Shadow Fall that went unnoticed at the PS4 premiere) to creating a marvelous universe filled with animal-shaped machines and artificial intelligence, decaying humanity, and “new ones.” humans organized into prehistoric tribes.

The first game was the standard-bearer for PS4 Pro and it looks like Forbidden West, while not exclusive to Sony’s new console, will also push the PS5 technological limit.

Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart

Going back to a more established saga, we have to talk about Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart. Insomniac, which is now a Sony studio, showed two new games at the PS5 presentation. On the one hand, Spider-Man Miles Morales, a launch game for the Sony console that we liked a lot.

As seen in the gameplay of a few months ago, it will use the ray-tracing technique like few so far and, besides, it will take advantage of the very fast PS5 SSD to load levels in a hurry. It promises to be a game that takes advantage of those exclusive next-gen features, and we’re really looking forward to it.

Gran Turismo 7

Driving games always look great and we hope that with the power of PS5, Gran Turismo 7 does not disappoint. At the moment, we have seen a trailer with images of the game and the truth is that it seems that it will also take advantage of ray tracing quite well, but the Gran Turismo is much more.

The passion of its chief designer, Kazunori Yamauchi whom I had the pleasure of interviewing a few years ago, is to create the ultimate driving experience by capturing the beauty of the vehicles and tracks we have available and knowing that he is obsessed with light. it sure offers us one of the best implementations of ray tracing.

Of course, we also know that its developments tend to take longer, so, hopefully, we will see it in 2021.


It seems that Sony wants to give more importance to the Hosemarque studio, creator of action experiences as entertaining as Dead of Nation and the fun PS4 launch Resogun. Now, the study leaves the overhead camera to bet on the third person, but it seems that the premise will be the same.

Controlling an adventurer, we will have to face many enemies that exceed us in size in a game in which the hail of bullets will be constant and that will have roguelike elements that will force us to start over every time we die. This one does have a date, March 19th.

Project Athia

At first, we thought it would be the new Final Fantasy, but in the end, Square Enix has both Final Fantasy XVI and this Project Athia in development.

We do not have much data, at the moment, of the game, but we do know that we will have to face a huge world in which there will be gigantic creatures. We still think it will have something to do with Final Fantasy due to some similarities in the world, but what we are sure of is that visually it will be a spectacle thanks to the use of the Luminous Engine.

Ghostwire Tokyo

Shinji Mikami, a creator of Resident Evil or The Evil Within, is one of the heads in command of GhostWire Tokyo, an action and mystery game set in, obviously, Tokyo in which we will have to discover why humans are mysteriously disappearing.

This is an action-packed, first-person game that seems a far cry from the latest Mikami games, but the supernatural element is there because basically, we will have to fight a supernatural threat to find out why 99% of it has disappeared. the population.

Kena: Bridge of Spirits

Kena Bridge of Spirits is an adventure game and one of those titles that have stolen our hearts since the first trailer. We will put ourselves in the shoes of Kena, a Spiritual Guide who has to go in search of the Sanctuary of the Sacred Mountain. It will be a dangerous journey, but on the way, we will meet some adorable spirits called Rot who … well, who dedicate themselves to decompose the dead, wherever you see them.

Besides, it is a beautiful game that promises to be one of the first great fantastic adventures of the new generation. It will also be seen on PS4, but it will be on PC and PS5 where it will show the best graphics. And the truth is that it has an artistic style that reminds us of the latest Pixar works.

It was going to come out in 2020, but it will eventually arrive in early 2021.

Death loop

Death loop will arrive on May 21, 2021, a game that will first land on PS5 on PC and then on Xbox and that you have to follow if you like shooting. Arkane, parents of Dishonored and the last Prey, are the creators of this game that, basically, will take us to an island where the day restarts over and over again and that, to escape, forces us to kill eight targets key before the end of the day.

We will have a lot of weapons and special abilities to try to escape this time loop in which the setting, we simply love it.

And with this, we end the list of the most anticipated PS5 games for 2021. Surely some of the others will be delayed both so as not to collapse the calendar and to space out the exclusive releases, but if half of them come out plus all the multi-platforms that are already confirmed, the users of the Sony console can be happy.
