Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo Will Reportedly Be PS5 and PC Exclusive for a Year
In a new video from PlayStation, Bethesda's Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo will both be PlayStation 5 exclusive for at least a year.
With the PlayStation 5 finally out, there are plenty of next-gen games to look forward to in the next year or so. Among the games releasing in 2021 are Bethesda’s Ghostwire: Tokyo and Deathloop. In a new video highlighting upcoming PS5 games, it was confirmed that both Bethesda games will be PC and PS5 console exclusive for at least a year.
Towards the bottom of the screen when footage appears for both games, there are disclaimers saying they won’t be able to appear on other consoles till at least 12 months after launch. The message at the bottom of the screen also points out the games will be available on PC as well. In addition to these games, the video also shows off footage for Square-Enix’s Project Athia which will apparently be a PS5 console exclusive for two years.
Deathloop, the latest game from Arkane Lyon, was first announced during Bethesda’s E3 2019 press conference. The game follows two assassins as they’re stuck in a time loop on Blackreef Island. In order to break the time loop, it’s up to you to assassinate eight main targets. It was supposed to be a PS5 launch window game but Bethesda delayed it to May 2021.
Like Deathloop, Tango Gameworks’ Ghostwire: Tokyo was announced during Bethesda’s E3 2019 conference. The game is set in a version of Tokyo where most of the population has vanished due to supernatural beings. In September 2019, creative director Ikumi Nakamura announced she had left the studio for unknown reasons. Even without Nakamura’s direction, the game was shown off back in June alongside a new gameplay trailer.
Deathloop launches on the PlayStation 5 and PC on May 21, 2021. Currently, there’s no release date set for Ghostwire: Tokyo but it’ll release on PS5 and PC sometime next year. Stay tuned to DualShockers for more news on those games and so many more.
