Ps5 exclusive games coming in 2021
Exclusive titles like Astro's Playroom and Spider-man: Miles Morales are already available on the PS5.

This list will continue to be updated throughout the year as new titles and exclusives are announced. If you’re looking for specific release dates, then I highly recommend checking out our 2021 video game release date calendar for a more in-depth look at all the great games scheduled to release this year. For now, though, let’s jump right into the list of PS5 exclusives releasing in 2021. It’s also worth noting that some of these games will also release on the PC or PS4, however, there are no current known plans to release them on the Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S unless otherwise noted below.

  • Destruction AllStars
  • Deathloop (1-year exclusivity on PS5)
  • God of War: Ragnarok
  • Gran Tourismo 7
  • Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
  • Returnal
  • Horizon Forbidden West
  • Kena: Bridge of Spirits (Xbox planned to release sometime after release)
  • Solar Ash (limited time exclusive)
  • Stray (limited time exclusive)
  • GhostWire: Tokyo

Of course, this list will change over time and we’ll add more items as we find out about them throughout the rest of the year. We’ll also update any of the above titles should their exclusivity change at all over the coming months.

        I’m playing though the most recent PS4 title, and it looks gorgeous. Excited to see what something specifically for the PS5 will be like.

            yea thats why i am holding off. though actually, I have the disk version which i think has an uncapped frame rate. but I would like to see a buffing patch once the marketing picks up for 2. fingers crossed!
