We know that the next-generation PS5 is being developed as we speak. While it is rumoured that the console will release in 2019, there is no confirmation from Sony. What we do know is that some developers are working on titles for the PlayStation 5. Here we are going to look into the different developers that are working on PlayStation 5 games.
PlayStation 5 Games In Development Right Now
Different developers are working on making PlayStation 5 games. Whether or not these games are exclusives is another story entirely but the developers that are working on games for the next generation PlayStation are as follows:
1) Square Enix (Luminous Productions)
Square Enix is the parent company of Luminous Productions. The team has been restructured to work on a new AAA game that will release for the PS5. While we do not know much about this PlayStation 5 game, it is more than likely that this is indeed going to be an exclusive title.
2) Activision (Infinity Ward)
The recently released Call of Duty Black Ops 4 game was a success. Treyarch and Sledgehammer Games have had their turns but now it seems that Infinity Ward will be making the upcoming PlayStation 5 game. This has been confirmed by a job listing that is as follows:
“Come work with the game industry’s brightest on an exciting, unannounced next-gen title. The candidate must have a strong interest and passion for First Person Shooter (FPS) games.”
The next Call of Duty is expected to release next year and this could be one of the launch titles for the PS5. Infinity Ward also released Call of Duty: Ghosts, which initially released for the PS3 but also came out on the PS4. It will be interesting to see what the developer brings to the table next.
3) Sony Interactive Entertainment
This is the PS5 that we are talking about so it only makes sense that Sony would have some exclusive PlayStation 5 games lined up for the launch of the console. Sony has cancelled the PlayStation Experience event that was supposed to take place this year. We also know that Sony will not be at E3 2019.
This means that Sony could be working on PlayStation 5 games and that it is holding back on announcing anything new until the new console is released. Kazunori Yamauchi, CEO of Polyphony also hinted that there could be a Gran Turismo game in the works for the PS5. This could be a great addition to PlayStation 5 games when the console is released.
4) Bandai Namco Entertainment (Supermassive Games)
Sunny Mody, a level integrator at Supermassive Games as revealed that the team is working on a title for the upcoming PlayStation 5. This will most likely be an exclusive title as well.
5) Bethesda Softworks
Todd Howard has already confirmed that the upcoming game Starfield will be exclusive to the next-generation consoles. While it has not been confirmed, the same could be the case for Elder Scrolls VI.
6) Defiant Studios
According to a recent job post, the studio behind Lords of the Fallen is working on a new game for the next-generation consoles. The job post is as follows:
Defiant Studios is looking for an experienced Engine Programmer who has a broad range of skill sets and capabilities to help build and develop our projects. This is a rare opportunity to work on an original AAA console title fornext-generation platforms. We are a small but growing team, so your tasks would be broad giving you opportunities to expand your knowledge across multiple systems and platforms.
7) Warner Bros Studios (Rocksteady Studios)
Rocksteady is best known for its Batman games. According to new job posts on the studio website, the team is working on a new PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlet game. This could be the new Superman game but at this point, we cannot confirm that.
8) Amazon Game Studios (Double Helix)
Double Helix, which is now owned by Amazon is also working on a new game for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlet. Previously the developer has made games like Silent Hill: Homecoming, Killer Instinct, and Strider. It will be interesting to see what the company makes next.
9) High Impact Games
High Impact Games also seems to be working on a new title for the next-generation consoles. According to the sound designer at the studio, he is working on a new game that has not been announced yet. This is the same developer that brought us Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters, so it will be interesting to see what the developer is working on now.
These are all the developers that are working on PlayStation 5 games, at least the ones that we know of right now. let us know which game you are most excited about.
