PS5 Game Release Windows Removed From Sony’s CES Hype Trailer
Last week, Sony released a trailer for its CES 2021 presentation narrated by Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO Jim Ryan. The hype trailer included some sneak peeks at a few upcoming PS5 games such as Project Athia, Returnal, and Pragmata, though the real gems appeared at the end in the form of what appeared to be official release windows for those titles and a few others. Since then, Sony has uploaded a new version of the trailer without those release windows.
Sony took to its official YouTube channel to upload an updated version of its CES 2021 hype trailer. The contents of said trailer are chiefly the same, though the tiny wall of text at the end under its ‘Play Has No Limits’ slogan has been segmented as the result of its removal of several release windows for upcoming PS5 games. Thankfully the Internet is persistent, and as such many news outlets – such as ours – managed to capture the full list of PS5 game release windows prior to Sony’s replacement of the original video. Here’s the full list once again for posterity’s sake:
- Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart – 2021
- Horizon Forbidden West – 2021 (also coming to PS4)
- Hitman III – January 2021
- Returnal – March 19, 2021
- Kena: Bridge of Spirits – March 2021 (also coming to PS4)
- Solar Ash – June 2021 (also coming to PS4)
- Little Devil Inside – July 2021 (also coming to PS4)
- Stray – October 2021 (also coming to PS4)
- GhostWire: Tokyo – October 2021
- Project Athia – January 2022
- Pragmata – 2023
It only took Sony a couple of days to realize its mistake, though at this point it’s unknown if the release windows are all accurate ones and Sony simply jumped the gun on releasing them into the wild. Given what we’ve heard about, say, Project Athia, the prospect of the title releasing one year from now does have some merit, so chances are the rest of the release windows are accurate unless the ongoing pandemic causes further delays.
