19 PS5 Games to Look Forward to in 2024

Last year, PlayStation previewed 23 games we could expect on its consoles (coz it was 2023, get it?). Now that it’s 2024, they’ve provided a similar list for the PS5, although with a slightly lower number, considering the video game slate is looking less hectic than last year. Still, there’s plenty to look forward to on PlayStation 5 in 2024, so let’s check out what’s coming down the pipe.
