A PlayStation 5 launch advertisement has confirmed that Gran Turismo 7, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and Returnal are anticipated to launch in the first half of 2021, with Horizon: Forbidden West set to launch in the second half of 2021
You can check out the trailer on the PlayStation YouTube page here, which contains a small text note below the gameplay footage, confirming a number of launch windows for games that were announced in the run-up to the reveal of the PlayStation 5.
Given that it says ‘anticipated’ first half and second half 2021, release dates could slip due to the ongoing pressure of the COVID-19 pandemic, delays and other logistical issues. We already knew that Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart was a “launch window” PS5 game after the news was revealed back in August, and Horizon: Forbidden West was announced to be coming in 2021 upon its reveal back in June. This just gives us some more clarity about when both of these games may officially appear.
The news that Gran Turismo 7 would launch in the first half of 2021 was also leaked via a Canadian PlayStation advertisement last week, but this is the first we’ve heard of a release date for Returnal, the new shooter from Housemarque which appeared briefly in the PlayStation 5 reveal stream back in June.
The PlayStation 5 launches on November 12 & November 19 (depending on your region) worldwide. Preorders for the PlayStation 5 are currently sold out, but if more go up they’ll be in our PS5 preorder guide right away.
