A trailer showcasing upcoming games on the PlayStation 5 has revealed the timed console exclusivity period for Deathloop, Ghostwire: Tokyo, and Project Athia.
After Microsoft acquired Zenimax Media and Bethesda Softworks in late September, it was announced that Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo would honor their PlayStation timed-exclusive releases. Now, a new trailer for upcoming PlayStation 5 titles has revealed how long that will be for.
While the segment showcasing Deathloop states the game is PlayStation Console Exclusive, it comes with the disclaimer “Not available on other consoles until at least 12 months after release date.” The same disclaimer is stated when showing Ghostwire: Tokyo.
Deathloop launches May 21st, 2021 for Windows PC (via Steam), and PlayStation 5. Ghostwire: Tokyo launches 2021 for Windows PC, and PlayStation 5.
Project Athia is set to be coming soon to Windows PC, and PlayStation 5. The trailer also states the game is “not available on other consoles until at least 24 months after release date.”
You can find that trailer below.
Due to the games’ graphics, the above titles are almost certainly going to head to Xbox Series X- Microsoft’s answer to the next generation games console. Then again, a Nintendo Switch port is entirely possible, with reduced graphical features.
This is not the first time a PlayStation 5 trailer has revealed information about a game’s release. A TV ad in early November for the console’s launch revealed new release dates for Gran Turismo 7, Returnal, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and Horizon Forbidden West.
