Ghost of Tsushima, the samurai action game from Infamous developers Sucker Punch, may be coming to PS5 according to a new rumor. The rumor claims that PlayStation has two unannounced upcoming events. The first will be a State of Play livestream showcasing Death Stranding and The Last of Us 2. The second, PlayStation Meeting 2020, will focus on Ghost of Tsushima. Ghost of Tsushima has apparently been delayed, in part so it can be brought to PS4, too.
It's due to its now-delayed release window that Ghost of Tsushima will instead be instead focused on at the as-yet-unannounced PlayStation Meeting 2020. This kind of event could tentatively fall anywhere through 2020. 2016's PlayStation Meeting was in September and focused on the announcement and reveal of the PlayStation Pro console. A PlayStation Meeting 2020 could similarly focus on the PS5, showcasing Ghost of Tsushima as a launch title or as an example of the PS5's potential.
Development of Ghost of Tsushima is apparently going smoothly at Sucker Punch, despite the delays. There's said to be a significant amount of work going into the technical side of the game. The rumor doesn't make clear whether the technical upgrades came prior to Ghost of Tsushima being made into a PS5 title or as a result of being shifted to be a PS5 title. Considering how impressive Infamous: Second Son looked on PS4, expect Ghost of Tsushima to impress on PS5.
Accordingly, the rumor says that Ghost of Tsushima will not be a part of the State of Play event. This event will reportedly air on November 1 and is said to be longer than prior State of Play broadcasts. It will instead focus on three games planned for the relatively near future. Death Stranding will receive a launch trailer, as it will launch on November 8. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will also be a focus, due to its November 15 release date. Then The Last of Us 2 will receive a release date trailer confirming a May 2020 launch.
It has to be clarified that this rumor originates from 4chan. While rumors sourced from 4chan tend to be very unreliable, some are interesting enough to acknowledge alongside a recommendation of heavy skepticism. This rumor is claimed to have come from an intra-department email at Sony regarding upcoming PlayStation marketing efforts and messaging. The veracity of the email has not been confirmed, but these types of emails aren't uncommon. But until Sony makes an official announcement, treat this information as unreliable.
Ghost of Tsushima has no current release date and has been announced for the PS4.
