Development of PlayStation 5 games "progressing smoothly" as two more rumored titles are leaked
A couple of financial calls from two different companies have appropriately been offering up a wealth of information in regard to the PlayStation 5 and its expected software library. First off, Sony’s CFO was enthusiastically speaking about the console during a quarterly earnings call but unsurprisingly did not reveal any specifics:
Development of the PS5 is progressing according to plan and we believe development of game titles by our software development partners is progressing smoothly.
Totoki’s timing is spot on, as recently a couple of more games have been linked with the PS5. In an earlier financial call, this time from EA’s CFO, Blake Jorgensen, it was revealed that the smash-hit battle royale game Apex Legends will be making its way to new platforms. This basically means gamers will be able to enjoy the Titanfall-based free-for-all on either the PS5 or Xbox Project Scarlett. This won’t be a launch title though, as it has been penciled in for a 2021 fiscal year release.
Information on Reddit has provided details of what could be another title slated for the PS5. The original poster has stated that Dead Island 2 is being developed for a release in time with the next-generation consoles. It’s already been reported that Deep Silver Dambuster Studios has been working on the long-delayed survival horror sequel (officially announced back in 2014), but a new reveal of the game could take place at E3 2020.
Interestingly, the same Reddit post also claims that the PS5 devkits being used to work on Dead Island 2 do actually look like the leaked image we have reported about recently. Whether Sony will thoroughly redesign the console for the consumer market or keep the main elements of the V-shaped devkit still remains to be seen.
