In the most recent PS5 tech deep dive, they revealed that they are aiming to make the top 100 PS4 games (based on playtime) available for launch on the new console. That won’t include THPS.

Sony have confirmed that 4000+ PS4 titles will be supported on the new system, but that might not be immediate.

It’s safe to say that the new trailer tugged at the heartstrings somewhat.
