For now, take a look at our picks for the top upcoming PlayStation 4 video game titles of 2019.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake
  • Developer: Square Enix Business Division 1
  • Publisher: Square Enix
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Release: TBA

One of the biggest Final Fantasy titles to have released is finally getting its much-deserved remake. Final Fantasy VII has been rumored to be remastered, rebooted and remade for years. Fans have been pleading for Square Enix to return and give the game a proper facelift after its initial release on the PlayStation, but it’s only now with the PlayStation 4 that we’re finally going to see that remake become a reality.

Square Enix had unveiled that this remake would also see the return of key members of the original production. Likewise, there would be some changes such as making gameplay more of an action RPG rather than the standard turn-based RPG we’ve seen from the original title.

While the story will retell the original narrative, the remake will be released episodically. According to reports, the decision to go with an episodic release was simply due to the fact that developers would not be forced to make any cuts. Furthermore, it seems that there will be some slight additions made to the game as well.

Currently, the game doesn’t have a set release date attached to the project, but we’re hoping to see it release in 2019.

Ghost Of Tsushima
  • Developer: Sucker Punch
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Release: TBA

Ghost of Tsushima is a brand new IP from developers Sucker Punch. These are the same creators who have brought out other notable titles on the PlayStation platform such as Sly Cooper and the Infamous series. This latest title takes players back into an ancient setting within Japan.

The year is 1274 and the Samurai have been quickly taken out by the Khan forces that invaded the island. Jin is one of the very last samurai left and it’s his duty to take down this seemingly unstoppable Khan force from destroying his home.

However, with his samurai brothers fallen from the attacks, Jin quickly learns that the traditional ways of combat won’t save those he love. Instead, Jin must become a ghost and use unconventional tactics to win this war.

The Last Of Us Part 2
  • Developer: Naughty Dog
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Release: TBA

One of the biggest IPs to release on the Sony PlayStation 3 is Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us.  The development team showcased a thrilling narrative mixed with a world we’ve been eager to return since the game launched back in 2013.

Overall, the game is set in a post-apocalyptic world after a disease has turned most of humanity into a fungus type zombie creature. Now with the government in shambles and groups of people seeking a means to survive however possible, players are left with an uphill battle.

Luckily Naughty Dog was willing to explore this world once again with the upcoming sequel likely to launch at some point in 2019. Not too many details have been released in regards to this sequel other than that Ellie and Joel will return with a time jump of five years.

Death Stranding
  • Developer: Kojima Productions
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Release: TBA

Death Stranding has a lot riding on it to help with the hype. You have the rocky relationship split between famed developer Hideo Kojima and Konami. Prior to the split was the release of the latest Metal Gear Solid game, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain along with the announcement of Silent Hills. The latter of the two was quickly canceled shortly before Kojima took his leave from the Konami company and that sparked quite a bit of outrage on its own.

This split has left gamers curious as to what Hideo Kojima would do next as rumors started to flood of his leave from video game development and the start of directing films. That soon ended with the announcement of Hideo Kojima opening up his own video game development studio known as Kojima Productions with the first title being Death Stranding.

With all that into consideration, hype quickly built up surrounding this upcoming title, though very little information was unveiled. Instead, we’re given trailer footage showing a world in which creatures kidnap humans after being tracked by sound. For now, we’ll have to wait and see what new information will be revealed.

Cyberpunk 2077
  • Developer: CD Projekt Red
  • Publisher: CD Projekt
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: TBA

CD Projekt is known for their works with The Witcher series that started all the way back in 2007 and didn’t wrap up until 2016. Now that The Witcher game series has come to an end, more of a focus has been put on their upcoming project, Cyberpunk 2077.

This is a title that has been announced since 2012 though very little information has been revealed. However, with the information we know about the game and the developer’s success with The Witcher series, we’re eagerly waiting to get our hands on the game.

Cyberpunk 2077 is open-world RPG that’s set in the distant future. Apparently, this upcoming title will also be massive and the biggest open-world title that the developers have ever worked on. As a result, we can expect a long narrative, a seamless filled open-world environment along with countless quests to complete.

The Surge 2
  • Developer: Deck13 Interactive
  • Publisher: Focus Home Interactive
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2019

Note: Trailer and images are from The Surge.

In 2017, Deck13 Interactive developed The Surge, a science fiction action RPG which follows a story of humanity, the evolution of technology and the downfall of world resources. For the most part, the game received positive reviews leaving the developer to once again pick up the world and seek out a new installment.

The Surge 2 is slated to release in 2019 where players are set into a broken down city and as a result, level design will be far larger than the areas gamers could roam within the title’s predecessor. Likewise, it seems that combat will also see a more brutal polish this time around, but we’re currently waiting to hear more information on this upcoming title.

Psychonauts 2
  • Developer: Double Fine Productions
  • Publisher: Starbreeze Studios
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO

Within the game, developers Double Fine Productions and game director Tim Schafer is seeking a return to the IP world after the strong demand from the original Psychonaut fanbase.

The game will follow the events from Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin, a PSVR title that was developed to bridge the gap between Psychonauts and Psychonauts 2. This is a platform title where players control Raz, a Psychonaut who uses various Psi-Powers to solve problems and explore the world.

Tim Schafer is seeking to dive a bit into the life history of Raz and his family as well with this sequel.

The game is set in a futuristic world where humanity is safely tucked away behind a closed off wall. What lurks beyond the wall are hostile alien creatures that could prove the end of humanity that lives on this planet.

From what we know so far, players are a freelancer, a member of an organization that explores the world beyond the walls. However, in order to safely maneuver around the world and deal with the monsters that await your arrival, players will step into a specialized suit known as a Javelin, which look pretty similar to the Iron Man suits from the Marvel franchise.

Life is Strange 2
  • Developer: Dontnod Entertainment
  • Publisher: Square Enix

  • Release: TBA

Note: Trailer and images are from Life is Strange.

Life is Strange first released in 2015 from developers Dontnod Entertainment. This episodic adventure title wrapped up with over three million sales thanks to its narrative journey it looks players. However, since the game wrapped, we’ve been eager to see if this IP will continue on.

Thankfully, the Life is Strange 2 development was confirmed, though little to no information was revealed. Apparently, we can go ahead and mark off Chloe and Max from being front and center for this sequel.

Developers have stated that the game would see a new cast of characters and a brand new location. However, what we don’t know is if we’ll see the supernatural power centered on the protagonist and what the overall narrative journey will be based around.

With Dontnod Entertainment’s Vampyr title being released in 2018 and development for Life is Strange 2 being worked on since 2016, 2019 could see a release for the game. Though, it wouldn’t be too shocking if the game doesn’t end up launching until 2020.
