New PlayStation games are going to launch on PS Plus

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.

New Games Still Coming

In his recent interview, Jim Ryan was asked about the increase in new PS4 and PS5 games releasing Day One on PS Plus.

Below, we have Jim Ryan's response:

Yes, it is. We see this is a very interesting and innovative way to publish games and to make games available to our subscribers. It works for us as the publisher and we know that subscribers to PlayStation Plus love it.

It doesn't give much away, but it confirms something very important to PS Plus subscribers.

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.
