Over the last year, PS5 users have racked up more than 4.6 billion hours of gameplay, alongside broadcasting more than 26 million hours of content. This is the top ten list of most played PS5 games in the last year:
- Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
- FIFA 21
- NBA 2K21
- Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
- Destiny 2
- MLB The Show 21
- Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
- Demon’s Souls
- NBA 2K22
The Biggest Titles on PS5
Some of the biggest franchises in the world like Call of Duty, Destiny, and Assassin’s Creed, as well as sports games like NBA, FIFA, and MLB The Show are well represented on this list. Considering NBA 2K22 was released just two months ago, its appearance in the final spot is perhaps the biggest surprise.
As expected, Fortnite tops the list, but there are a few other highlights. It’s probably not a surprise that Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is on this list despite its relatively short run time, but Demon’s Souls also made it, which is impressive considering its sales potential when compared to the other games here. It looks like PlayStation 5 is going to have a great second year, especially given the upcoming launch of Horizon Forbidden West, God of War Ragnarok, and Gran Turismo 7.
Also in the blog post, Sony acknowledges the stock issue, before confirming that the PS5 has been their most successful console launch in history. Overall, despite ongoing stock issues it has been a good year for PS5. Sony also acquired numerous studios, such as Bluepoint Games, Firesprite, Housemarque, and Nixxes which means their extensive catalogue of over 360 games will only continue to grow and improve.
