PlayStation Plus

The announcement of the new PlayStation Plus games in March 2021 for PS4 and PS5 is expected for this afternoon. Following a proven schedule, Sony should announce the new Instant Game Collection games at 5:30 pm, Italian time.

Many think that the announcement may slip and that Sony is preparing to reveal the new ones games of the Plus in the PlayStation State of Play on February 25, this hypothesis, however, appears unlikely since the company has specified that the show will be dedicated only to the next games arriving on PS4 and PS5 and there will be no communications on hardware or content of other type.

With this in mind, there should therefore be no changes and the long-awaited announcement will arrive on Wednesday 24 February at 5:30 pm. In our PlayStation Plus games predictions for March 2021 we mentioned Gran Turismo Sport and Rainbow Six Siege for PS4 as well as The Pathless for PS5, however in the last few hours the hypothesis Kena Bridge of Spirits for free on PS Plus has made its way.

A simple rumor the latter, which however took hold after the words of Jim Ryan, who declared that Sony will continue to follow the path traced with Bugsnax and Destruction AllStars, adding new ones to the Plus catalog. games in their absolute debut, like the two titles mentioned and as happened in the case of Worms Rumble in December.

The new free PS4 and PS5 games are going to keep coming to PS Plus in the future!

In a recent interview with GQ, SIE CEO Jim Ryan had some interesting comments to make when asked about Day One PS Plus releases and their future.

Last year, Fall Guys found unexpected and unprecedented success on the PlayStation platform after a Day One PS Plus release.

In addition to this, just last month, Lucid Games' Destruction AllStars was also given a Day One PS Plus release instead of a paid launch.

It has been reported that around 87% of PlayStation 5 owners also subscribe to PS Plus. When you consider this, a Day One PS Plus release immediately captures that audience for any new title.

Even if you're not a fan of Bugsnax, Destruction AllStars, Fall Guys, or even Worms Rumble... New PS4 and PS5 games are going to continue to launch with Day One PS Plus releases.

This appears to continue alongside the additional two PS Plus games that are made available for free each month.

Although we don't have any concrete information about the frequency of these releases, the recent launch of Destruction AllStars does provide us with something.

This will be available for free via PS Plus for two months, so we can expect the next new PS4 and PS5 games to get a Day One release around April.
