PlayStation 5 Reported To Have Next-Gen Exclusive Titles

PS5 FossBytes

Recently, the head of Microsoft Studios, Matt Booty, revealed that for the first year of the Xbox Series X launch, all of the company's first-party games will run on the Xbox One as well. Following this interview, a podcast featuring Kotaku's Jason Schreier stated that Sony will not be adopting a similar strategy, instead making PS5-exclusive titles.

It is understandable for newer consoles to have exclusive launches for marketing purposes. In the podcast, Schreier states that Sony is intended to release exclusive PS5 titles that cannot be played anywhere else. In contrast, games releasing for the Xbox Series X can be played both on the Xbox One and PC, at least for the next few years.

Although very little is known about these exclusive PS5 games, one can easily guess anticipated PlayStation titles like Horizon Zero Dawn 2 and God of War 2 will be among them. Meanwhile, a special PlayStation Meetup has been rumored to be taking place next month, discussing the details of the next State of Play and possibly removing the shroud from the anticipated console.

This also means it's likely that Sony will be skipping E3 for the second time in a row. There have been two separate sources suggesting that Sony will be skipping the biggest trade show of the year in exchange for its rumored PlayStation Meetup. At the meetup, it's possible Sony will officially reveal the PS5, its specs, price, and the PSVR 2 headset. Additionally, fans might also learn more about the Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us 2.

None of this information, howsoever, is officially confirmed by Sony. All of it can turn out to be pointless hearsay, but it does sound pretty exciting, especially since the company skipped E3 2019 and hasn't spoken about much as of now.
