The PS5 games reveal is happening right now, and below you can read our live blog covering today’s event, which Sony has called The Future of Gaming. The live stream began at 1PM PDT / 9PM BST / 4PM EDT, and we’re getting our first look at PS5 games coming to the console at launch and likely beyond. Here’s how to watch the PS5 games reveal live stream, so you can follow along.
We’ve gone into this event expecting an array of new game announcements and reveals, with PS5 exclusives unveiled for the first time, along with games from third-party publishers and developers. The Future of Gaming is running for just over an hour, Sony has confirmed, and we’ll hopefully come out of the other side with our best look at next-gen games yet.
Sony has kept everything revealed today a total mystery, even after delaying The Future of Gaming from its original intended date of June 4. We don’t expect to see the console itself, or to learn the PS5 price, but for the focus to instead be on PS5 games, with some discussion of how the hardware brings these new titles to life.
Below, we’ll be live blogging the PS5 games reveal event over the next hour or so, up until the end of the live stream. Join us for in-depth analysis on everything we see during The Future of Gaming.

PS5 event live blog
All times ET. Refresh for latest updates!
4:56 pm: We’re now looking at a new action game from Arkane studios of Dishonored fame. It’s yet another first-person action game, complete with dual-wielding, special powers, and the ability to rewind time.
4:53 pm: Shuhei! I sure did miss that man. We’re seeing what looks like a new From Software game? I see demons, dragons and knights. There it is — Demon’s Souls is back! I can hear my Souls-loving friends screaming from here. And it’s being remade by Bluepoint games, who did an amazing job with titles such as Shadow of the Colossus.
4:52 pm: We’ve got a cheery new game coming from the Octodad team. It’s called Bugsnax, and it looks to have no shortage of funk quirky humor. Quick side note — I’m loving these unique transitions between games.
4:50 pm: Here comes Zion Williamson to introduce NBA 2K21. The young Pelicans star looks incredibly true to life in the new game, with each individual bead of sweat rendered in incredible detail. Look for it later this year.
4:48 pm: This indie action game sure looks quirky, with cute blocky characters that can be seen fighting monsters and… using the toilet? The game is called Little Devil Inside, and we’re eager to see more.
4:47 pm: Looks like another Astro Bot game is coming, this time in the form of Astro’s Playroom. You just have to love the variety of this show — we’ve seen a healthy amount of epic AAA games, indie stuff, weird cyberpunk horror, and plenty of adorable 3D platformers like this one.
4:45 pm: Hitman is back! Hitman III looks to bring the series’ beloved stealth action to next gen sometime in 2021. Io Interactive says that this is Agent 47’s most “intimate” adventure yet, and will mark the end of a trilogy.
4:43 pm: Another surreal, colorful and artsy adventure from Annapurna. The game is Solar Ash, and it has visual shades of Sayonara Wild Hearts and Hyper Light Drifter. Curious to see more.
4:40pm: Time for a new look at Godfall, the ‘looter-slasher’ coming to PS5 later this year. It looks like Dark Souls meets Destiny, which I predict is a combo that gamers will eat up this fall.
4:39 pm: Here comes a surreal new sci-fi adventure game based around space exploration. Jet: The Far Shore looks super intriguing, and it’s out this year.
4:37 pm: Speaking of gaming legends, horror games icon Shinji Mikami is now on screen to talk about Bethesda’s Ghostwire: Tokyo. The game’s supernatural action has shades of Prey and Dishonored, but in an awesomely spooky and cyberpunk Japan setting. Sign us up come 2021.
4:35 pm: Hey look, it’s Lorne Lanning! It looks like the Oddworld franchise is back with its most beautiful and expansive entry yet. Oddworld Soulstorm is coming soon.
4:33 pm: We’re now looking at a game that looks like a living cartoon with a gorgeous hand drawn art style and lots of anthropomorphic humanoid characters. And that theme song is gorgeous and sad — right up my alley. Goodbye Volcano High launches in 2021.
4:30 pm: Here comes a new colorful action-adventure game. Is that Cary Tagawa’s voice? Either way, Kena: Bridge of Spirits looks like a gorgeous action title with adorable characters, and could very well be the PS5’s equivalent to Breath of the Wild.
4:27 pm: Combat sports, anyone? Destruction Allstars is a vehicular combat game that looks like a colorful, fun new take on the Twisted Metal formula with a bit of Rocket League added in.
4:25 pm: And now for something completely different. Sackboy! A Big Adventure. It looks like the star of LittleBigPlanet is getting his own dedicated 3D platformer, which looks like an absolute delight.
4:24 pm: Here comes a new Sony franchise from Resogun devs Housemarque. Looks like a cinematic space action game with serious Alien vibes and a dash of Death Stranding mixed in. The lead character looks especially lifelike, and the enemy characters look terrifying. The game’s called Returnal, and we’ll hopefully be playing it soon.
4:21 pm: Time for a quick break to recap some features and specs. Sony is boasting its consoles fast SSD and ray tracing abilities, as well as a close-up look at the DualSense that showcases features like haptic feedback and a built-in microphone. Nothing new here, but a reminder of just how much cool stuff the PS5 will have. To that point, Sony worldwide studios boss Herman Hulst is describing how the PS5 will represent a “paradigm shift” that removes the compromises developers previously had to make.
4:20 pm: Next up is Annapurna Interactive. We see some sort of futuristic sci-fi world filled with robots and one very adorable cat. The game is called Stray, and presumably stars said adorable cat. Look for it in 2021.
4:17 pm: Here comes the Square Enix logo. Project Aitha is a gorgeous-looking PS5 exclusive featuring a really scary dragon. Can’t wait to see more.
4:12 pm: Ratchet and Clank time! Sony is really coming hard with the first-party exclusives right out of the gate, and I’m here for it. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart looks absolutely gorgeous, and should fill out the PS5 library nicely when it comes to family-friendly fare. Insomniac noted that this colorful third-person shooter will take special advantage of the DualSense controller, which we can’t wait to feel for ourselves.
4:10 pm: Time for Gran Turismo 7. The game looks as predictably gorgeous as a PS5 racer should. To quote our resident race fan Adam, “I’M FREAKING OUT.”
4:08 pm: Yes! Marvel’s Spider-Man is back, this time with Miles Morales in the spotlight. It’s fittingly titled Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and it’s launching at the end of THIS YEAR. I’ve got goosebumps.
4:07 pm: Here comes PlayStation boss Jim Ryan to kick off the show properly. “He says these experiences are “transformative in how they look, play and feel.”
4:05 pm: And we’re kicking things off with Grand Theft Auto! It looks like GTA V is coming to PS5 in 2021, “expanded and enhanced.” And PS4 GTAV owners will get a free upgrade! That bodes well for the rest of this show.
4:03 pm: Cue the classic PlayStation startup noise into a montage of PlayStation games new and old. Definitely got some nostalgia chills.
4 pm: Here. we. go. Sony is showing some sort of mysterious white box that’s morphing into the PlayStation button logos. Perhaps the PS5 will be a shapeshifting console?
3:55 pm: Okay, time for last minute predictions and hopes. Our staff writer and resident racing aficionado is hoping for Gran Turismo 7. Editor Marshall Honorof is holding out for Bloodborne 2. And as for me? Give me Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, and lots of it.
3:20 pm: We’ve got less than an hour to go, and Sony has gone live with its pre-stream presentation. If you want to hear a mix of club music and soothing strings and stare at a bunch of PlayStation logos while you wait, now’s the time to do it.
2 pm: Two hours until showtime! Sony Santa Monica gameplay director Jeet Shroff seems excited about the event — perhaps we’ll see some God of War news?
Come join us as we get into the details about what the future has in store! #gamedev #playstation https://t.co/GPBp4dxkxPJune 9, 2020
11:45 am: Just hours before showtime, a massive string of alleged leaks from IronManPS5 have popped up on Twitter. The user claims to have details on the system’s price, release date and what games we’ll see today, but we’re taking it all with a grain of salt. Meanwhile, Microsoft sure chose an interesting time to post a big breakdown of the Xbox Series X.
8:15 am: It’s show day, and the leaks and teases have already come hard and fast. A ton of placeholder PS5 games leaked on Amazon yesterday, suggesting that there will be plenty to pre-order once the event wraps up. And a member of the God of War studio promised an exciting show, so it’s possible we’ll see a new installment in the franchise pop up. We also saw a sketchy PS5 listing on Amazon pointing to a crazy high price of £599 or $760, so hopefully we get more concrete pricing info soon.
