Sony has also released images of games to be released by Sony Interactive Entertainment, such as the racing game Gran Turismo 7 . No release date is currently known.
The manufacturer has also lifted the veil on NBA 2K21, whose first trailer was revealed Thursday evening. NBA 2K games generally come out in the fall, but it’s unclear whether the new episode will be available only on the new PlayStation, or whether it will be possible to play it on the PS4.
Another big announcement, the release in 2021 on the PS5 of Resident Evil 8 , which bears the name of Village . Little information has been released on the game but Capcom, the developer and publisher of the series, should say more in August.
A remake of the game Demon’s Souls , released in 2009, will also be available, developed by Bluepoint Games. The story takes place in a dark medieval universe invaded by demons. The player plays a hero tasked with defeating them to bring peace to the kingdom.
Sony also announced that the game of Rockstar Games GTA V will be released in an improved version on the PS5 in early 2021. The title will have crossed three generations of consoles since it was originally released on PlayStation 3. The next episode, GTA VI, is expected to appear in 2023 .
