Sony’s PlayStation 4 (PS4) has been a bona fide success from day one of the eighth generation of gaming consoles. Over the course of five years, the system has built upon a strong premise and delivered magnificent experiences that have shaped the very course of current-gen games. It has been the bedrock of emerging technology such as affordable and highly accessible virtual reality (PlayStation VR) as well. With sales of over 79 million and counting, it seems set that the PS4 will live long in public memory.
One of the key factors in the PS4’s runaway success has been its exclusive games. From post-apocalyptic worlds rife with robot dinosaurs to the last hurrah of a legendary treasure hunter, the console has delivered and continues to do so. It is no surprise whatsoever that developers are lining up to release their games on the bestselling console. The PS4 shows no signs of stopping its relentless march anytime soon. Without further ado, here is the list of most anticipated PS4 new releases coming out within next few years 2019, 2020. We can only hope that these latest PS4 games would be as good as some of the recent ones.
19. Devil May Cry 5 (March 8, 2019)
The Devil May Cry franchise is responsible for putting out some of the most stylish hack-and-slash games till date. The combo system is loved by everyone and if mashing buttons like a maniac to see cool things happen on-screen gets you going, then DMC5 is going to offer just that. Fans have waited eleven years for this game, and we can’t wait to see how the Sons of Sparda storyline will finally come to an end. We did get Ninja Theory’s take on the DMC storyline, but not everyone took too kindly to the emo Dante. With new characters like Nico (Nicoletta Goldstein) who is the granddaughter of Nell Goldstein, the legendary craftsman who made Ebony and Ivory. We also have V, a character who many thought to be Vergil in disguise but the theory was dismantled in the latest Story trailer making the character even more intriguing. Capcom has already released a masterpiece in form of Resident Evil 2 earlier this year, and Devil May Cry 5 is set to be the publisher’s next biggest blockbuster for 2019.
18. A Plague Tale: Innocence (May 14, 2019)
When the game’s announcement dropped out of nowhere in E3 2018, it grabbed everyone’s attention. Developed by Asobo Studio under Focus Home Interactive, the game looks quite great, and we also got to go through some gameplay footage recently. From what we’ve seen so far, the game looks like it is a stealth-survival game similar to Dishonored. However, unlike the badass assassin Corvo was in Dishonored, you are being hunted by members of the Inquisition and also the plague. The game looks beautiful and tense at the same time. Throughout the game you will have to protect your little brother Hugo from the dark and unforgiving world many lived in during the 12th century.
