The date is still not 100% sure, but successive leaks have been speculating on the release date of the new Sony console. After a “Holiday 2020” announcement, further rumors have suggested that the Play Station on steroids could be on sale quite a bit earlier, in November 2020, in time for Black Friday. Bookmakers could soon start accepting bets on the exact day, perhaps we might find a chance with Parx Casino promo code if the matter is accepted as a sort of sports betting topic.
What will the line-up of next-gen games for both Play Station 5 and Xbox Scarlett is the target of even more feverish guess games and speculations. The net is awash with rumors and hypothesis, but most production companies are extremely tight-lipped.
More rumors and expectations than actual official announcements are making headlines on the titles that will be available for the new consoles.
Take Ubisoft, for example: the French giant first delayed and then confirmed three new games, Watch Dogs: Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Gods and Monsters. CEO Yves Guillemot announced that all three will be released in fiscal year 2021 (that begins in April 2020) for both current and next generation consoles. Very likely, they will get ready in time for PS5 and Xbox Scarlet launch dates.
Dying Light 2 from Techland is one more of the very rare officially announced cross-generation games so far. Apparently it will be available somewhere in 2020 for both PS4 and PS5. And Xbox Scarlett too. The sequel to Dying Light (2015), it is a survival horror action role-playing game. A parcour-skilled hero, Aiden Caldwell, in a zombie-infested “City”, has a multitude of choices to make to stay alive. From fighting his own infection to making deals with the tough PeaceKeepers who try to enforce some order in the reduced human community using very rigid control measures.
At least one sports game is surely coming out for PS5 and Scarlett: the new baby of EA for the NBA Live series. So hot is EA on the next-gen version of NBA Live 21 that they announced the cancellation of NBA Live 20 on their Instagram profile: “Alongside the NBA and NBPA, we have our sights set on creating something fresh for the next generation of players and platforms. We know we need to earn our future every step of the way, so we’re taking time to get it right for our players. We promise to check back regularly with updates.”
Bluepoint Games is a particular case. The Texas specialist of remasters (think of Shadow of the Colossus, Gravity Rush and the Nathan Drake Collection) has confirmed that a PlayStation 5 “big game” is in the pipeline. But no more details have been made public. No title, conception, release date. Rumors have it that the mistery candidate should be Demon’s Souls and even that the project is in advanced state. Bluepoint Games would make a rush at having it ready for the PS5 release date.
