Playstation Now Losing 56 Games Before New PS Plus Launch Rumor

The brand new PlayStation Plus tiers will start rolling out in some regions towards the end of May. When they do, PlayStation Now will cease to exist and the service will be offered in a slightly different form as part of PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium. It appears Sony is starting to make preparations for the change as 56 games have currently been noted as leaving PS Now throughout May 2022 with more expected to join the list.
