Rumor: Square Enix, Activision and WB Games Working on First PlayStation 5 Games
We know that many development studios are already in possession of the PS5 dev kit, based on this information, the website PSU has tried to rebuild a list of publishers who have already started projects for PlayStation 5, from Square-Enix to Bethesda, passing through Activision and of course Sony Interactive Entertainment.
Among the companies working on games for PlayStation 5, the website PSU cites Square Enix, Activision, Sony Interactive Entertainment, Bandai Namco Entertainment, Bethesda Softworks, Defiant Studios, Warner Bros Studios, Amazon Game Studios, and High Impact Games.
As emerged from job listings and resumes on LinkedIn, Luminous Productions (Square Enix) is developing an AAA game for PlayStation 5 while Activision could be busy with Call of Duty 2019 and Destiny 3. Sony Interactive Entertainment may have projects like Bloodborne II, new IPs, or even Cross-Gen porting of games like The Last of Us 2, Death Stranding and Ghost of Tsushima.
Bandai Namco Games may have put Supermassive Games to work on a PS5 game, the studio said it is working on an “unannounced AAA game for a next-generation Sony console,” Bandai Namco and Supermassive are collaborating on the publishing of The Dark Pictures Anthology but it is not excluded that the agreement between the two parties also foresees other games.
Bethesda, as we know, is developing Starfield and The Elder Scrolls VI for next-generation platforms while Defiant Studios could bring Lords of the Fallen 2 on PS5. Finally, Warner may have commissioned Rocksteady on a new Batman for the next-gen console.
At the moment what is reported is only the result of rumor and speculation, according to some rumors next year Sony will hold two events to present PlayStation 5 with great fanfare, at the moment no confirmation has come from the company, which as we know will miss the E3 2019.
