Update: It’s been three months since we first published this article, but we had to bring it back after taking another look at the 2023 PS5 and PS4 release schedule. If you thought the original list (which you can still find below) was ridiculous, wait until you see this update. Jeez!
2023 is indeed shaping up to be one of the most terrifying years for gaming we’ve seen in generations.
Without a hitch…
Now that’s just getting silly, isn’t it? The crazy part is that Sony currently only has one first-party blockbuster slated for 2023, and that’s Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. It’s not unreasonable to expect at least one more PlayStation Studio title to drop next year.
Do you think 2023 is going to be really crazy for new games? Take a look at our original story to compare how much this list has grown in three months, and then brace yourself for an onslaught in the comments section below.
Original story: Final Fantasy VII Rebirth was revealed just a few days ago, complete with a winter 2023 release window, and it got us thinking… just how stacked is 2023 for PS5 and PS4 gaming? Answer: very much – To the point where the majority of these launch targets are in place, we could be looking at one of the strongest years in PlayStation history.
No, seriously, take a look at this list. Most of these games don’t have release dates yet, but at the time of writing, they’re all penciled in for 2023.
Jeez! And the thing is, more games will be added to this list over the next several months and beyond – it’s far from final.
There are heavy hitters – many of which are skipping last-gen consoles altogether. The likes of Dead Space, Resident Evil 4, Final Fantasy XVI, Final Fantasy VII Reborn, Alan Wake II, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, Pragmatism, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, Street Fighter 6, and Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. All will be complete blockbusters – big Budget games with the potential to set the sales charts on fire.
Now, of course, some of these games might not make it to 2023. The aforementioned Final Fantasy VII Rebirth immediately comes to mind; Square Enix is as a matter of fact Are two tentpole Final Fantasy games going to be released within six months of each other? We are struggling to believe, but if it does yes…
Still, there’s no denying the potential here – a truly ridiculous release schedule as it stands. What games are you most looking forward to in 2023? Are there any games you think are designed to be delayed? Let us know if you’re already considering next year’s wonders in the comments section below.
