33 Games Slated for PlayStation 4 “Launch Frame”


Forget about launch windows. The time between the PlayStation 4 launch date of November 15th and December 31st has been dubbed the console’s “launch frame.” Same thing, different name.

Within this frame of time, Sony expects a total of 33 games to be available for its next-gen console. 15 will be retail Blu-ray disc titles, including:

NBA 2K14
Call of Duty: Ghosts
Skylanders: Swap Force
Need for Speed: Rivals
Battlefield 4
Madden NFL 25
NBA Live
Killzone: Shadow Fall
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
Watch Dogs
Just Dance 2014
LEGO Marvel Superheroes

The remaining 18 titles will consist of digital downloads via PSN, but at this time Sony has not confirmed a specific list. Free-to-play games Warframe, DC Universe Online and PlanetSide 2 have previously been confirmed for later this year, so there’s three more. I know there are a lot of indie games on the way too, like the aiming-to-be-a-launch-title Mercenary Kings, but I can’t think of any off the top of my head that are 100% locked in for this year.

Beyond the launch frame, Sony says that over 180 games are currently in development for PS4. Headliners to look forward to in 2014 include the likes of Destiny, Infamous: Second Son, The Witness, Thief, The Witcher 3, Diablo III and The Order: 1886, among many others.
