Top 15 next-gen exclusives we can’t wait to play

The latest consoles from Sony and Microsoft have been appearing since November 2021. Despite the scarcity affecting them, these have already achieved record numbers just a few months after their introduction. However, that doesn’t prevent the owners of these new consoles from getting angry. In fact, some of them are being offended by the manufacturers for the benefit of the PS4 and Xbox One installed base. It has to be said that the PS5 and Xbox series really don’t seem spoiled for big games since their release and rarely offer exclusive deals to their “next-gen” gamers.

Top 15 PS5 / Xbox Series Exclusives We Love The Most

However, as you could see at the last few conferences, there seems to be a breath of fresh air in the gaming world. Little by little, Xbox and PlayStation seem to be changing their strategy and even seem to be working on more powerful games that are impossible to publish on “old generation” consoles. This decision should displease some gamers, but it could also excite many others who are curious about how the new consoles will perform to the max.

On this occasion, we have therefore decided to put together a top 15 “next-gen” exclusives that will be published in the coming months / years (mostly not for a while). This one is completely personal, but we’re sure you’ll recognize yourself from some of our biggest favorites. The games presented are initially only planned for PS5 and / or Xbox Series and should therefore not appear on PS4 or Xbox One. However, almost all of them will be accessible on a high quality PC.

The main novelty of the next opus will be the possibility to face zombified animals.
