Deathloop and Ghostwire:Tokyo are both timed console exclusives on PlayStation 5. 

As confirmed by GamesIndustry.biz, the two Bethesda published titles will be exclusive to Sony’s new console at launch. Gameplay for both titles was unveiled during the PlayStation 5 reveal event on Thursday.

Deathloop is a grindhouse-inspired shooter from Dishonored developer Arkane Studios. First revealed during Bethesda’s press conference at E3 2019, there was no indication of platform exclusivity. Deathloop’s stylish neo-noir aesthetic combines well with the smooth combat and blend of traditional futuristic weaponry on display in the trailer. The game will release during “Holiday 2020”.


Ghostwire: Tokyo
treads a similar path to Deathloop. It too was announced at last year’s Bethesda press conference and, again, no exclusivity was mentioned at the time. Clearly Sony has been busy securing these up in the interim. However, that’s where the similarities end. Created by Shinji Mikami and his team at Tango Gameworks, Ghostwire: Tokyo asks the player to uncover a paranormal mystery using “a powerful arsenal of spectral abilities”.

The game seemingly dips into Mikami’s penchant for horror, but sets it amongst the neon of Tokyo. Aside from some superheroic elemental attacks, there’s not much more to go on. The game is set for release in 2021.
