    While the PlayStation 5 will get new entries of its popular franchises like God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn (and there's reportedly even a remake of The Last of Us in the works), the console will get its fair share of new IPs under the PlayStation Studios brand. In a recent interview with Wired, Hermen Hulst, PlayStation Studios' lead, said that the group is working on over 25 games for the PS5, "nearly half of which are entirely new IP".

    “There’s an incredible amount of variety originating from different regions,” Hulst said in the interview. “Big, small, different genres.” So we can expect indie as well as AAA titles in the mix. In the report, Wired mentioned that Ember Lab, the studio behind Kena: Bridge of Spirits, is working on its next title. It also name-dropped Haven Studios (from former Google Stadia vice president) and Firewalk Studios (working on an unannounced, new multiplayer IP) as studios having previously announced their partnership with Sony. So these could be hints about where some of those 25+ titles might be coming from.

    Wired also notes that Guerrilla Games' Horizon Forbidden West is still slated to be released later this year and that the PS5 version of the game will make use of the DualSense’s haptics capabilities to allow for a "special sauce well beyond fast travel and graphical fidelity". "If you want to take a stealth approach to a combat situation and you dive into long grass, you can feel those long grass leaves,” Guerrilla studio director Angie Smets hinted in the report.

    Unless they are RPG's or adventure games, I won't be very interested in them.

    I worry about how far away some of these are. I honestly haven't seen a next gen title I'm even remotely interested in so far and I say that as an owner of a PS5.

    Yeah we're looking at years before seeing all of those 25+ titles come to the console. This console gen's library has been rather lackluster so far, especially with launch titles.

    but this has always been the case, next gen consoles at first mainly get the same old multi platform games ported, which i really do not understand idiots that are shelling out scalper prices for the next gen, mainly to play these titles that are also on the last gen that you already own and can be played on next gen (or offer next gen upgrade for free).

    this generation is a joke in terms of how many games it has exclusive to it (not system exclusives, but generation exclusives in general).

    So this news is indeed great news, it covers exactly the weakest point of PS5 right now.

    they say the same about every gen and only 10-20% of them are actual good games. Rest is filler trash to pad up e3 of very indie looking games that belong on mobile

    I read this as “PlayStation is working on 25 PlayStation 5” and didn’t even think that was suspicious.

    To be fair, the way I see this News is the same way I'm looking at current Nintendo Switch Titles whilst reading this.
    I'm actually quite happy with how much is in the Switch Library per 2021 and 4 years into its Cycle.

    Similarly, I'll be happy with how much is in the PlayStation 5 Library per 2025 when I read News of the latest Console announcing their 25+ Titles development ...

    It actually has a lot of good games, some of which are indeed indies, but that doesnt matter in this topic.

    Must kinda suck to limit yourself to so little. It's like people who only really listen to one type of music.

    Returnal is AMAZING. Sorry the next-gen Call of Poopy isn't out yet. :P

    I wrote that I will not be very interested in them, not that I will never have any interest.
    RPG's are my favourite genre, as such I prioritize them. Get over it.

    I can practically hear the sneer coming off your keyboard. Different people like different things. Try to remember that's a good thing because it results in the vast variety of game genres we see today.

    So I misread.Get over it. See how that works?

    Says the person sneering. You may be able to "practically" hear mine, but I can hear yours loud and clear as if you were half an inch from my face. Hypocrite much? ;)

    I’ll bet one is a racer. Oh with the haptic feedback, you’ll feel the car shake at high speeds. That will be cool.


    Or maybe one where you play as kool-aid man and you break through walls. You’ll get haptic feedbacks. oh yeaaa

    Honestly speaking I feel this generation just further proves the fact that PC gaming will overtake the console market entirely within the long run. That said it seems to be approaching much closer in the last two generations given that most of the biggest hits/best selling are either ports or remasters of previous generation games which are multi-plat and exclusivity is going down the toilet given that its effort is not worth the development money to just restrict yourself to one system. At this point exclusivity is just there to make the console relevant, and with that being the case the only strong one in that argument here which works with positive returns is Nintendo which is not a surprise given their fanbase is consistent throughout the years.

    The age of the home console is basically on deaths door, this generation is a shining example that the only people really wanting a new console at this very moment are those with FOMO or kids who do not know better, or people that want to flaunt their ego about getting the latest and greatest thing while having very little to show for it in investment (unless they plan on reselling it afterwards)..

    To all those out there with their newest console. I hope it really does fulfill you in some meaningful way. Otherwise, the truth is in plain sight. Whats the point in investing in brand new hardware just to buy games you already had from the old hardware? I do not get it, but I have not been a console guy since the X360 days.
