Top 10 upcoming PS5 games not coming to the Xbox Series X and Switch

While many people are saying that the PS5 is already losing against the Xbox Series X because of the enormous number of heavyweight console exclusives that Microsoft managed to get for themselves, the PS5 is still nonetheless standing strong with its lineup of yet-to-be- released console exclusives. Here are just some of the top 10 upcoming PS5 console exclusives that will not be coming to the Xbox Series X.

Top 10 Upcoming PS5 Console Exclusives (As of July 3, 2022)

1. Forspoken
Release Date: October 11, 2022
Developed By: Luminous Productions
Published By: Square Enix

While we’d still love to see Final Fantasy 7 Remake in this list, for the time being, we’re letting Cloud and Sephiroth step aside in favor of another SQUARE ENIX title: Forspoken. Appearing in the PlayStation Showcase, Forspoken’s a breath of fresh air from the usual games we’ve been treated to by SQUARE ENIX. Forspoken is very promising especially since it’s being worked on by industry veterans, including the fabled Amy Hennig. Originally set to be released in May 2022, the game was delayed to October 11, 2022to give the studio more time to polish the game.

2. God of War: Ragnarok
Release Date: 2nd Half 2022
Developed By: Santa Monica Studio
Published By: Sony Interactive Entertainment

God of War is definitely one of the highlights of the PS4’s lifespan. Of course, Sony won’t let Santa Monica Studio get away with not making a sequel for the PS5. God of War: Ragnarok will cement the series’ longevity and long-term appeal, with the game releasing almost 17 years since the original title came out. God of War: Ragnarok made an appearance in the latest Sony PlayStation Showcase, and we actually gained a lot of info, including the introduction of the burly Thor.

Meanwhile, the arrival of God of War on PC might also mean that Ragnarok will follow suit, but this, as of now, is mere speculation. There are also a lot of rumors that point towards a September 2022 release, but this also is unconfirmed.

3. Eternights
Release Date: TBA 2023
Developed By: Studio Sai
Published By: Studio Sai

Eternights is a new adventure set to release in ‘Early 2023,’ in which we’ll endeavor to make the best of life in the post-apocalyptic world — rescuing the planet, finding love, and so on. The Eternights debut trailer effectively demonstrated the game’s unique mixture of love narrative and haptic combat, emphasizing the dungeon exploration and courting that would be necessary. Basically a game that mixes Action RPG and dating sim, Eternights look promising, especially for anime fans.

4. Valkyrie Elysium
Release Date: TBA 2022
Developed By: Soleil
Published By: Square Enix

Again, another Square Enix release. This time, it’s a revival of an old classic. The Valkyrie Profile franchise is getting a resurrection with a new game titled Valkyrie Elysium – and it looks fantastic. While we don’t have a lot to go on for this game yet apart from the fact that it’s getting a 2022 release date, the game’s reveal trailer is enough to get some of us wanting more. Valkyrie Profile is a well-beloved game franchise that has a long history with the PlayStation itself, so seeing it return for the latest PlayStation console as a PS5 exclusive is cathartic.

5. Rollerdrome
Release Date: August 16, 2022
Developed By: Roll7
Published By: Private Division

If you gave Roller Derby participants huge guns, you’d get Rollerdrome. Athletes blast each other to smithereens while doing acrobatic stunts on roller skates, avoiding huge mechs blasting back with guns. This game kinda came out of nowhere and we’re still not sure what to make of it, but it sure does look interesting and compelling. I definitely love the cel-shaded graphics that remind me of XIII back when it was still good. Rollerdome will launch on both the PS4 and PS5 on August 16.

6. Spider-Man 2
Release Date: TBA 2023
Developed By: Insomniac Games
Published By: Sony Interactive Entertainment

As we’ve already mentioned, Spider-Man 2 will be coming out in the far future exclusively to the PS5. It’s amazing how Insomniac Games is working on two big-name projects at once, but we do hope that both Spider-Man 2 and Wolverine will both deliver. Thankfully, Insomniac Games has a clean track record in this regard, and we can only wait patiently as they do their magic on this sequel game. Spider-Man 3: No Way Home just added more hype for this game, and, well, we’re just going to leave it at that to keep this article spoiler-free.

7. Stray
Released By: July 19, 2022
Developed By: BlueTwelve Studio
Published By: Annapurna Interactive

Stray is one of those amusing kinds of games that might not have a lot of industry-changing features but can carry its own weight by the premise alone. Stray, after all, is being published by the eclectic Annapurna Interactive, with their weird by creative tastes. It’s definitely one of the most anticipated PS5 exclusive games right now, but it will also be launching on PC. It was initially slated for an “Early 2022” release, but Sony later indicated that Stray will be coming out in the Summer of 2022. Finally, during the June State of Play, Sony revealed that the game will be coming on July 19, 2022 , and will be free to download for PS Plus Extra Members and above.

8. Final Fantasy XVI
Release Date: Summer 2023
Developed By: SQUARE ENIX
Published By: SQUARE ENIX

Final Fantasy 16 still doesn’t have a release date, but the latest news coming from Yoshi-P indicates that an official release date might be revealed very soon, especially since he also said that the game’s development is now in its final stages of development, Nevertheless, fans are eagerly awaiting the next entry to the long-running saga by Square Enix. We are expecting more details to come out soon this Spring, as promised by game director Naoki Yoshida. Details about the game are still sparse, but here’s what we know: the game is set in the fictional world of Valistea, a continent with six facts that are on the verge of conflict due to the spreading disease called the Blight.

The release window for the game was finally revealed during the June Sony State of Play, which is set for Summer 2023. Well, that’s still a long time coming, but we’re sure that it’s going to be worth the wait.

9. Horizon Call of the Mountain
Release Date: TBA
Developed By: Guerilla Games, Firesprite
Published By: Sony Interactive Entertainment

For those who are still reeling from the emotional roller-coaster that was Horizon: Forbidden West, there’s yet another PS5 game that’s coming soon. However, you’d actually need the new PS VR2 to play this game. This game seems to focus more on exploration, showing the colorful world of Horizon, but also showing the technical prowess of the new VR console. While it’s not going to be as action-intensive as Horizon: Forbidden West, we’re sure that this game will still be picked up by Horizon fans who would eventually own the PS VR2.

10. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake
Release Date: TBA
Developed By: Aspyr
Published By: Sony Interactive Entertainment

Headlining the PlayStation Showcase is one game that a lot of RPG fans have not forgotten: Knights of the Old Republic. The classic RPG tale of twists and turns will be returning, built from scratch. The game’s remake will have no participation from BioWare whatsoever, however, so it’d be interesting to see how this one will turn out in the hands of Aspyr. We haven’t seen a great CRPG game in a long time, so we really hope that this game delivers. Aspyr should not mess with this classic’s remake if they don’t want to face the wrath of the entire gaming community. And please, no microtransactions, please.
