New PS5 games, accessories and platform features coming in 2023
We are humbled by the support for PS5 from our community and are passionate about growing the best lineup of PlayStation games we’ve ever delivered. Last week, players stepped into the world of Athia in Square Enix’s spellbinding new PS5 exclusive, Forspoken. With more anticipated games coming this year like Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Final Fantasy XVI, Hogwarts Legacy, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, Resident Evil 4: Remake and Street Fighter 6, as well as upcoming expansions like Destiny 2: Lightfall and Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores, 2023 is shaping up to be an amazing year for PS5 players.
Beyond new games, we’re delighted to continue expanding the PS5 console experience with all-new accessories like the recently-released DualSense Edge wireless controller. On February 22, we will celebrate the beginning of a new VR gaming generation with the launch of PlayStation VR2, featuring more than 30 games in the launch window such as Horizon Call of the Mountain, Gran Turismo 7 and Resident Evil Village.*
Thanks to everyone in our community for your continued passion and support. We’re truly excited for what’s ahead this year and beyond.
