PS5 exclusives release schedule: God of War: Ragnarok, Forspoken, more

. 14 days ago

The PlayStation 5 is now over a year old, and is already building a solid library of exclusives. Here is the release schedule of all the PS5 exclusives you won’t find anywhere else, from Horizon Forbidden West to God of War: Ragnarok.

Although it’s still not particularly easy to get hold of a PlayStation 5, it’d be fair to say the console is off to a great start. Sony’s fifth home console plays host to a whole lot of PS5 exclusives that take full advantage of its lightning-fast SSD and intuitive new Dualsense controller.

While Sony is starting to put some of its PS4 exclusives on PC, meanwhile, the PS5 exclusives list is growing fast. Here’s are all the PS5 exclusives we know of so far, including games that have already launched.

  • Upcoming PS5 exclusives

PS5 has picked up where its predecessor left off in terms of exclusive games.

Upcoming PS5 exclusives

2022 is shaping up to be a huge year for Sony, and we’ve already received huge first-party titles like Horizon: Forbidden West and Gran Turismo 7.

Below is a list of all the upcoming PS5 exclusives, along with any confirmed release dates we have so far.

Re-experience Joel and Ellie’s story rebuilt from the ground up in The Last of Us Part 1

The Last of Us Part 1

Nine years after its original release, Naughty Dog is giving fans the opportunity to revisit Joel and Ellie’s journey once again in The Last of Us Part 1. Cited as the definitive version of the game, this PS5 exclusive is a faithful remake of the beloved story , and its DLC, Left Behind, which has been rebuilt from the ground up.

The original voice and motion capture performances from Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson remain, while new animation, updated AI, and fresh combat is set to enhance the experience further than ever before.

Forspoken, an open world upcoming PS5 exclusive

Square Enix

The world in Forspoken looks stunning.


Square Enix’s next action-adventure title, Forspoken, could be one of next year’s most exciting games. Aside from its stunning visual style, fluid traversal, and story about a woman transported from NYC to a mystical world, the game’s writing talent features Gary Whitta (Rogue One) and Amy Hennig (Uncharted and the Legacy of Kain).

The PS5 exclusive was recently delayed to October, so we’ll have to wait a little while to explore its open world.

Ragnarok will be Kratos’ latest journey in Sony’s iconic franchise.

Kratos’ 2018 adventure remains one of PlayStation 4’s best, and it appears his return in 2022 is shaping up to be more of the same – with gorgeous visuals, a story steeped in Norse mythology, and Atreus looking much more grown-up (BOY no more).

This time around, our duo of deities is looking for Tyr, and their search will see them clash with foes new and old.

Upcoming PlayStation exclusives coming later than 2022:

Spider-Man 2 will introduce Venom, as well as Kraven.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2

While Marvel’s Spider-Man (2018) and its Miles Morales-based follow-up set a new Spiderverse in motion, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will see it expand in multiple ways. For one, it appears both Peter Parker and Miles will be playable, while Kraven and Venom will be the villains this time around.

We’re excited to revisit Manhattan again in 2023 – especially with how beautiful it looked in Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

Insomniac is working on a Wolverine title alongside Spider-Man 2.

Marvel’s Wolverine

Insomniac appears to have been given the keys to the Marvel kingdom, and the recently revealed Wolverine game might be just as exciting as its work on Spider-Man. While we don’t know a huge amount yet, this PS5 exclusive starring Weapon X himself is likely to be bloody and brutal.

It’s also confirmed to be a full-length title, as opposed to a shorter experience like Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

knights remake


Knights of the Old Republic’s remake has a lot to live up to.

Knights of the Old Republic Remake – timed exclusive

Knights of the Old Republic is one of gaming’s finest RPGs, while also being arguably the best Star Wars game of all time. It’s set 4,000 years prior to the original trilogy, meaning while its worlds are often familiar, they’re shown in a new light. Aspyr Media’s retelling of the classic will be a launch exclusive to PS5, and there’s a lot of pressure to get it right.

Still, with some members of the original onboard to help with the remake, it could be the perfect way to share a great story with a new audience.

Horizon: Call of the Mountain – PlayStation VR exclusive

Guerilla’s open-world franchise is coming to VR, and a recent State of Play showed us our first gameplay. A first-person adventure with climbing and combat, you can check out the trailer below:

Returnal PS5


Returnal was divisive when it launched.

PlayStation 4 led the way last generation in terms of exclusive games, with Sony rebooting the likes of God of War and Ratchet and Clank while also releasing titles like Bloodborne, Uncharted 4, and The Last of Us Part 2. Some of them, like Returnal , will be available to play on the new, revamped PlayStation Plus service, too.

Here are all the current playable PlayStation 5 exclusives:

Deathloop is one of PS5’s most critically acclaimed releases so far.

That’s quite a list of titles that Sony has already released for the console, and this is only the beginning of the PS5’s library, as many more are releasing within the next year or so.
