Update June 3, 6:15 AM ET: Added Sony’s tweets about the postponement of the PS5 event and added that Sony removed the PS5 release date from the site.
The leaked 176th issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine revealed a list of 38 games that will come together with the upcoming PlayStation 5 console.
Officially, this issue will be released on June 2, 2020. The leaked sample is probably not a fake, so the information that can be found in it may give us a hint on what to expect from the next-generation PlayStation gaming console. You can check the precise release years of all 38 games in the picture below.
Some of the games mentioned in the list will be released together with the console. Others will be presented later this year or even in 2021, while some don’t even have confirmed release dates.

The remaining games from the list will be released either until the end of this year or in 2021:

However, this list does not include titles of exclusive games that will be released at the same time with the launch of the new console and later.
So far, Sony has unveiled the hardware specifications of PS5 as well as a new DualSense wireless controller. However, the design or the price of the console are still unknown.
The new console itself is scheduled to be presented on Holiday 2020 season, so it is unlikely that the event on June 4 will reveal any details regarding the design or cost of PS5.
Update: As of June 3, Sony removed the phare "Launches holiday 2020" from the official website of the company. In addition, the same mention of the approximate start of sales was removed from all language versions of the site.
Also, in a video published on PlayStation’s YouTube channel, Sony announced the date of the next PS5 event that is scheduled for Thursday, June 4, and will start at 4 PM ET/1 PM PT. The event will last about an hour and will primarily focus on the games that users will be playing upon PS 5 launch.
Further events where the company will uncover more details may happen in the following weeks or months.
Update: Sony has postponed the upcoming PS5 event that was scheduled to take place on June 4. This event was intended for showing off the gameplay of the next-generation PS console. Sony didn’t mention the exact date of the rescheduled event.
The company’s decision follows anti-racism protests happening across the USA. They were a response to George Floyd’s death at the hand of a Minneapolis police officer last week. Ongoing protests have taken place across several US cities.
Sony is not the only major company to delay events. EA also delayed the Madden NFL 21 event, and Google postponed the Android 11 beta announcement.
