All upcoming PS5 and PS4 games coming in 2023

By Lee Brady,

2023 promises to be a wild year for PlayStation games on PS5 and PS4 — that's why, to help you keep track of things, we've put together this handy guide for all the games we're looking forward to in 2023!

Keeping track of every big upcoming game for PS5 and PS4 in 2023 can be a real hassle — which is why we've gone to the trouble for you. From January to December 2023, a whole host of potential candidates for our best PS5 games and best PS4 games lists get added to the PlayStation Store. Rather than simply list every game going, we'll help identify the PlayStation games you should be looking out for in 2023 in our guide below!

Latest Update: Pinball FX and The Crew Motorfest are new additions to the year, while month-long delays for Star Wars Jedi Survivor and Amnesia The Bunker push them further into 2023.

PlayStation games get announced, delayed, and cancelled at an unpredictable rate — that's why we'll be updating this guide weekly to make sure you don't miss any important updates on 2023's most exciting games. At this early point in the year, we also have a bunch of games without a firm release date — check out our 2023 Overview section below for a glimpse at what might be coming later down the line.

2023 Overview

2023 promises to be an action-packed year for PS5 and PS4 releases — from Forspoken (read our preview), to Marvel's Spider-Man 2, all the way to Final Fantasy VII Rebirth; it's going to be a busy year for PlayStation games. Checking the most up-to-date information, we've been able to narrow down the release window of many of 2023's biggest games, but there are still so many more titles yet to pin even the rough launch date down.

Some big names continue to elude us, like Exoprimal and Avatar Frontiers of Pandora. Sega's Like a Dragon Gaiden and Hyenas (our Hyenas preview and interview) remain unpinned, much like Remedy's Alan Wake 2 and TellTale's The Wolf Among Us 2. Some of the most exciting PlayStation Indies, like Schim, Viewfinder, Earthblade, and that forever elusive Little Devil Inside release date, all remain vague and loose.

Here are more PS5 and PS4 games that have yet to announce a firmer release date than 2023:

There's no real beating around the bush here: the first three months of 2023 are absolutely stuffed with exciting new PlayStation game releases. Forspoken, the Persona 3 and 4 PS4 upgrades, Dead Space, Like a Dragon Ishin, and the over 20 PS VR2 launch games all land before March.

Q2 2023

After a month like March, it's no wonder that a lull in big PlayStation releases finally comes in April — or so it seemed until Star Wars Jedi Survivor's release date got delayed. April and June 2023, the PS5 and PS4 still get some huge additions to each respective games library: Final Fantasy XVI, Diablo IV, Street Fighter 6, Dead Island 2, and Suicide Square Kill the Justice League all flood out within the same three month period.

There will be plenty more games announced for the April to June 2023 window as the year rolls on — we recently got a Q2 2023 date for Minecraft Legends, for example. We also predicted we'd see The Lord of the Rings Gollum between April and June, and this has been narrowed down lately by publisher Nacon in a recent earnings report — though they do not it could extend to September. Let's hope the game lands around here in the year — ideally in May, when competition is low.

PS5 and PS4 games releasing in April 2023

  • Star Trek Resurgence (PS5, PS4) — April TBA
  • GrimGrimoire OnceMore (PS5, PS4) — April 4th
  • Meet Your Maker (PS5, PS4) — April 4th
  • Hogwarts Legacy (PS4) — April 4th
  • Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection (PS4) — April 14th
  • God of Rock (PS5, PS4) — April 18th
  • Minecraft Legends (PS5, PS4) — April 18th
  • Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores [Expansion] (PS5) — April 19th
  • Star Wars Jedi Survivor (PS5) — April 28th

Q3 2023

July to September 2023 has all the potential in the world to be the most exciting block of the year ahead for one key reason — Marvel's Spider-Man 2. We have a confirmed release window for Spider-Man 2 of Fall 2023, and while that could mean we won't be seeing the game until the later months of the year, the 'Fall' marketing on The Last of Us Part 1 last year, as opposed to the 'November' marketing of God of War Ragnarok, has us convinced it'll launch in September.

At present, Q3 better pray it has Spider-Man 2; otherwise, it's slim pickings. Sure, there's a new Assassin's Creed game, and a number of other anticipated titles that lack clear launch dates: Goodbye Volcano High, Freedom Planet 2, Blue Protocol, Sea of Stars, and The Expanse A Telltale Series all have plenty of details to get hyped about. After such a stuffed first half of the year, though, it feels a little sparse.

PS5 and PS4 games releasing in July 2023

  • No PS5 or PS4 game releases officially scheduled for July 2023 yet.

PS5 and PS4 games releasing in August 2023

  • Assassin's Creed Mirage (PS5, PS4) — no date confirmed, rumours suggest it was delayed until August

PS5 and PS4 games releasing in September 2023

  • No PS5 or PS4 game releases officially scheduled for September 2023 yet. Marvel's Spider-Man 2 (PS5 Exclusive) could launch September 2023.

Q4 2023

Make no mistake — a lack of early confirmations for the end of 2023 so far does not indicate a rubbish few months ahead for PS5 and PS4. Last year we saw the release dates for God of War Ragnarok, The Callisto Protocol, and Need for Speed Unbound all drop rather belatedly. We're sure the same is bound to happen in 2023.

In the meantime, alongside hotly anticipated sequel Ghostrunner 2 and Firmament, the latest title from the studio behind Myst, we already have one of the biggest games in the year set sometime within this final quarter — Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. Regardless of what comes out around it, this limited PS5-exclusive Final Fantasy VII game will make a tremendous cap to a busy year in video games.

PS5 and PS4 games releasing in October 2023

  • No PS5 or PS4 game releases officially scheduled for October2023 yet.

PS5 and PS4 games releasing in November 2023

  • No PS5 or PS4 game releases officially scheduled for November 2023 yet.

PS5 and PS4 games releasing in December 2023

  • No PS5 or PS4 game releases officially scheduled for December 2023 yet.
