Although PlayStation 5 remains to be a competent machine in terms of its power and profitability for Sony, the console is to face a creative drought in 2024. In one financial report, it was revealed many legacy IP for the platform will be absent for the entire fiscal year – until March 2025 at the earliest. Instead, it is expected live-service initiatives are to take the mantle for this year.

However, there are other returning franchises with rerelease plans this year. Previously, it was revealed that Nixxes Software & Ballistic Moon are to deliver a PlayStation 5/PC remaster for Until Dawn. Additionally, reports also point towards Gravity Rush 2 also receiving the same treatment as well sometime in the calendar year as well.

According to Giant Bomb’s Jeff Grubb, the insider says more is on the way believing a new Astro Bot title is primed for a 2024 launch. He also urges there is a May showcase underway following the pattern of previous State of Play airings. You can watch the segment of the show below:

“I’ve been hearing multiple times now that there will be a PlayStation ‘something’ next month. It does seem like they are leaning towards some sort of showcase, they definitely did a showcase last May so it’s not too shocking,” Grubb says. “They probably do have a number of games to talk about and I’m ready to hear about it. […] Also, I do keep hearing that some smaller, first-party games, like that Astro [Bot] game that is still supposedly happening this year.”

Of course, the current roster still stands to be strong for PlayStation 5 – even if it’s not from the likes of PlayStation in-house. With titles including Silent Hill 2 & Stellar Blade, there is no reason not to be excited. We also reviewed the recent launch for Rise of the Ronin which you can read by heading here.
