That night was the famous Sony press conference at CES 2021 from Las Vegas. Although the CES is a show much more oriented on Tech than Gaming, the video game subsidiary of the Japanese manufacturer is often present to make a small point. Last year, Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment took the stage for five minutes to talk about the excellent numbers of the PS4 and unveil the official logo of the PS5.
This year, the same Jim Ryan returned to the Sony scene to announce that the PlayStation 5 had just achieved the biggest launch in the history of a PlayStation console, but also of a video game console (despite the important out of stock). On top of that, we got a little bonus for the release of upcoming PS5 games.
A great year 2021 in perspective on PS5?
It was after a short speech against a black background that Jim Ryan offered PS5 players a new trailer of the experiences to come on the brand’s next-generation console. We discover at the end of the video a list of games with their new release period.

Where are God of War and Gran Turismo 7?
Announced during The Future of Gaming event in June 2020, it’s pretty amazing not to see a Gran Turismo 7 in this new trailer and in this list of games. However, the new driving simulation for Polyphony Digital teams is expected for the first half of 2021.
The same goes for God of War Ragnarök announced during the PS5 event last September. The Santa Monica Studios game is said to be slated for 2021, but is not on the games list either. Either way, according to the original series creator, Kratos’ new adventures are set to arrive on PS5 as well as PS4.
Do you think we should be worried about these absences?
