Rumor: PS5 Launch Titles Leaked, Include The Last of Us 2

rumor ps5 launch titles leaked include the last of us 2

On December 3rd, 2018, a person claiming to be a third-party European game developer working on a PlayStation 5 launch title posted information on Pastebin about Sony's next-generation console. The post didn't gain much attention until just recently, when it was discovered and circulated online. If the post is accurate, it leaks the PS5 price point, as well as some of the PS5's games, including the console's launch titles.

According to the leaker, the PlayStation 5 will launch with a VR-supported Gran Turismo 7, a free-to-play version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, a remaster of The Last of Us 2, a remaster of Ghost of Tsushima, 2-3 unrevealed triple-A games, and some games for the rumored PlayStation VR 2.

The leaker also points to some games that will apparently be coming to the PS5 in 2020 as well. These games include Battlefield: Bad Company 3, which has been rumored in the past, as well as the leaked Harry Potter game. The leaker also claims that Grand Theft Auto 6 may be coming to PS5 in 2020 with a one-month timed-exclusivity deal, and that Assassin's Creed is also coming to the console in 2020. The last game that the leaker says is in development for PS5 is Horizon 2, which will launch in 2021.

We caution fans to take the information in the Pastebin post with a massive grain of salt, but it's worth commenting on since it's become more widely circulated in the last couple of days. However, there is no way to verify the information in the post, and even if the leaker is who they claim to be, it's highly unlikely that the PS5 launch titles are decided on at this point.

After all, the PS5 hasn't even been announced yet, and actual industry insiders point to it not coming until holiday 2020. Jason Schreier of Kotaku has said that PS5 dev kits haven't even been sent out yet, so it doesn't seem as though the information in this "leak" can be trusted, to say the least.

Regardless, it does make sense for the PS5 to launch with some cross-gen titles, and since The Last of Us 2 and Ghost of Tsushima are releasing so late in the PS4's lifespan, they seem like obvious candidates. Everything else mentioned in the post is a crapshoot, and fans should treat every piece of PS5 news with skepticism unless it comes from Sony itself.
