On the occasion of CES 2021, the famous consumer electronics fair set up by the Consumer Technology Association in Los Angeles, Sony showed a full-bodied video dedicated to the PS5 system and the next upcoming titles, revealing the launch windows of many first-party games (and more), coming during 2021.
Among these, we find not only the highly anticipated Ratchet & Clank, Horizon Forbidden West and Kena: Bridge of Spirits, but also the new IP from Square Enix and Luminous Productions, Project Athia.
We report in detail all the launch windows of the game shown below:
- Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart – 2021
- Horizon Forbidden West – 2021
- Returnal – March 19, 2021
- Pragmata – 2023
- Solar Ash – June 2021
- Kena: Bridge of Spirits – March 2021
- Stray – October 2021
- Ghostwire Tokyo – October 2021
- Little Devil Inside – July 2021
- Project Athia – 2022
- Hitman III – January 2021
Unfortunately, according to what emerged from a recent tweet from Gematsu (and which you can easily retrieve at the bottom of the article), Sony would have reloaded the video of the event on YouTube, effectively removing all references relating to third party PS5 games.
Among the titles involved are: Pragmata, Solar Ash, Kena, Stray, Ghostwire Tokyo, Little Devil Inside, Project Athia, and Hitman III. At the moment it is not clear why the Japanese giant has decided to eliminate the launch windows of many projects, although it is very likely that SIE has incorrectly revealed the still provisional release dates (therefore, not yet definitive), and then run immediately for cover.
Unfortunately, during CES 2021 no more details were released on the next adventure of Kratos and Atreus, God of War Ragnarok, which according to the information that emerged on the occasion of the showcase dedicated to PlayStation 5, should always see the light in 2021.
