Looks like next year will be packed with PlayStation exclusives, as Sony have narrowed down the release dates for GT7, the new Ratchet and Clank game, Returnal, and Horizon Forbidden West.

PlayStation 5 is launching this week in the United States, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, and South Korea, and with that in mind, Sony have posted a "New Worlds To Explore" launch trailer on their YouTube channel, which showcases some of the biggest upcoming PS5 first-party titles. If you're from Europe like us, you'll have to wait until November 19 to get your hands on the brand-new PS5.

You won't see anything new in this one-minute trailer, which seems to be more hardcore-PlayStation-audience oriented, but the company have revealed a little something-something by telling us when can we expect some of their biggest hits to arrive on the PlayStation 5.

In the new PS5's launch trailer, we can see the narrowed release date for Polygon Digital's Gran Turismo 7, Insomniac Games' Ratched and Clank: Rift Apart, and Housemaque's mysterious new game Returnal, all coming in the first half of 2021.

The sequel to 2017's Horizon Zero Dawn, a critically-acclaimed open-world post-apocalyptic game from Sony's PlayStation Studios developer Guerrilla Games, called Horizon Forbidden West , is coming in the second half of next year.

Horizon Forbidden West is arguably the best looking game announced so far for the PS5 platform and just like Horizon Zero Dawn, it's expected to raise the bar with an updated version of the Decima engine. The game is set to launch both on PS4 and PS5, but it will undoubtedly utilize the full power of the Next-gen hardware.

There's no word of God of War Ragnarok in this ad, even though the game is aiming for a Q4 2021 release date, according to some industry insiders . The latest entry in the God of War series is God of War from 2018, released on PlayStation 4. 

Next year could be crowded with PlayStation Studios exclusives, and with Horizon Forbidden West scheduled to release in the second half of the year, it's hard to believe that we'll get a new God of War game in 2021.
