List of Upcoming Games to Playstation 5 & Xbox Series X in 2021

45

More than two months after its release, the PS5 and Xbox Series X / S continue to be some of the most desirable gadgets in the world. While it is still very difficult to get a new console, those lucky enough to own a console can enjoy something unprecedented in the history of modern gaming. For the first time, next-generation console owners can take their existing library - whether physical, digital, or a mixture of the two - and bring it to the next-generation platform.

That gives consumers unprecedented freedom in deciding where they want to play and what performance benefits are worth upgrading. And technologies like cross-platform gaming and now even cross-generational support will allow people to keep playing with their friends, even if they don't upgrade to the latest gaming hardware.

Yes, both consoles are present within seven years of the last generation console hardware. And although within the first year of the consoles' lifespan many of the hottest titles could likely be launched in the last and current generation simultaneously, there are still most games that will be exclusive titles that can only be played on the PS5 or Xbox Series X / S.

In addition to 4K, solid-state drives, and other spec changes, Microsoft and Sony have promised to support nearly every title in the console platform library. Every Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox One game currently playable on existing Xbox One hardware (excluding Kinect games) will be playable on the X / S Series, while Sony supports "most" PS4 games, totaling more than 4,000 titles. With both consoles early in life, it's easy for many to fall back into older games to help fill in the gap between the long waiting times for more titles to be added to each console's library.

This changes the calculations a bit when it comes to buying a new console. You no longer have to leave what you played on the old device and start a new one. And thanks to some truly consumer-friendly initiatives like Xbox Smart Delivery and similar upgrade programs, many of the games we have now or plan to buy in the next few months will not only work on the new platform but in most cases, they'll also work. comes with a free upgrade over the standard PS4 and Xbox One versions. Sony also introduced the PlayStation Plus Collection, a library of PS4 games available free with its online subscription service.

That leaves us with one big problem: how do you know what new games are coming out for what platforms and when? There's also a painstaking unraveling process whether gaming companies are giving away free next-gen upgrades of cross-gen titles, charging a small extra fee, or releasing a next-gen custom game.

2021 is packed full of new releases and full optimizations of cross-gen gaming that will further give you what's available to play on your new system of choice. We've put together a list below to help you understand every game that came out during the first year of the PS5 and Xbox Series X / S.

This does not include games without a release date that may have been announced in advance - like the Elder Scrolls VI and Fable reboot, for example - and any games released for a console in 2020, including launch titles. We've also chosen to only list release dates for games for which the publisher has chosen a concrete date by day and month.
