Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO Jim Ryan in a PlayStation Blog post celebrated the one year anniversary of the launch of the PlayStation 5.
“So much has happened in just one year from the day we lit up landmarks and other iconic places all over the world to mark the arrival of PS5m,” said Ryan.
“Incredible games such as Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Returnal, and Deathloop launched. SIE acquired the talented development studios Bluepoint Games, Firesprite, Housemarque, and Nixxes. We revealed our next-generation VR system for PS5.
“And most recently, we’ve unveiled new footage and exciting updates for upcoming titles such as God of War Ragnarok, Gran Turismo 7, and Horizon Forbidden West all from PlayStation Studios, and announced Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – Remake during our September showcase.”
Ryan revealed more than 360 games have released on the PS5 and over 25 games are currently in development for the console at PlayStation studios.
He also revealed the top 10 most played games on the PS5 in its first year. Fortnite was the most played game on the console, followed by Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

“You’ve made PS5 the biggest console launch in history, and I truly can’t thank you enough for your support and dedication this past year,” he added.
