Just below we tell you what the complete list is:
The most played PS5 games in its first year; Fortnite among them
Through a statement published on the official PlayStation blog , Jim Ryan , president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, wanted to commemorate the first anniversary of PS5 . To celebrate the anniversary, some interesting information has been revealed, such as the list of the ten most played games on PlayStation 5 during its first year of life. The top 10 is as follows: GTA Trilogy Updates Its Track List With Missing Pieces.
- Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
- FIFA 21
- NBA 2K21
- Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
- Destiny 2
- MLB The Show 21
- Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
- Demon’s Souls
- NBA 2K22
It should be noted that, in the Sony blog post, there is no numerical order in the list , so we would not know if Fortnite would be the first . What we can talk about is that in this list there are only AAA games and only one of them is exclusive to PS5 : the remake of Demon’s Souls ( Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is exclusive to PlayStation consoles, but not to PS5 since it was also released on PS4). This is an important piece of information in the face of the eternal debate on the exclusivity of video games , and more especially considering that Sony has recently created the PlayStation PC seal to launch more of their video games on computers. The She-Hulk series warns us with its first teaser: “don’t make me angry“.
It is also striking that four of the ten are sports (FIFA 21, NBA 2K21, MLB The Show 21 and NBA 2K22), and also NBA 2K makes a double with its 2K21 and 2K22 deliveries, released in 2020 and 2021, respectively.
Another not inconsiderable figure is the number of hours played by all PS5 users this time: 4,600,000,000 hours . Needless to say, all this data has been collected in the period from November 12, 2020 to September 30, 2021.
