Among the announced titles are remakes of classics and new properties as well. Making a return is a remake of Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater while Dragon’s Dogma, Alan Wake and Arizona also get sequels.
In terms of new titles, PlayStation Studios revealed Fairgame$ from Haven Studios, Concord from Firewalk Studios and sci-fi shooter Helldivers 2.
Veteran developers Bungie have also taken the wraps off a new shooter called Marathon as well as an expansion for Destiny 2 called The Final Shape.

The Sony PlayStation 2023 showcase also gave a firsthand look at their upcoming Project Q that enables users to play any compatible game installed on the PS5 via Remote Play over WiFi.
