2022 has been an amazing year for the PS5, and it shows no signs of slowing down, so here are the best upcoming PS5 games from March through June.
The first quarter of 2022 produced some masterpieces for the PS5. We’ve seen the release of highly anticipated sequels to some of PlayStation’s most iconic franchises, with Horizon Forbidden West and Gran Turismo 7.
Sifu showed how a well-crafted story can elevate masterful combat mechanics.
And one of the greatest games of all time, Elden Ring, took players through a punishing story carefully crafted by the incredible minds of Hidetaka Miyazaki and George RR Martin.
Not to mention Destiny 2, with perhaps its most notable expansion yet with The Witch Queen.
And it seems that these next two months will continue to give the same in terms of quality.
Here are the best games coming to PS5 from March to June.
