Sony’s lucrative library of first-party titles is one of the major unique selling propositions of its console. While we haven’t seen many exclusives on the PlayStation 5 yet, Sony does have a lot in store. We already know that a Spider-Man and God of War sequel is in the works. However, it seems like we are getting neither of those titles in 2021. That being said, Sony has a wide range of timed-exclusives and exclusives which is slated to release this year. Sony recently organized its State of Play event to showcase some of the games fans can expect this year. Here is everything announced at the State of Play.
