Since its 2013 debut, the PlayStation 4 has become a huge success for Sony, getting millions of players to invest their precious time and money into the PlayStation ecosystem. This is largely due to the platform’s excellent line-up of diverse first-party exclusives, year after year. 2018 in particular was a great year for the PS4, with the release of award-winning titles like God of War and Marvel’s Spider-Man, both Sony exclusives.

Although this generation of consoles seems to be coming to an end, with rumors of a PS5 announcement in the next year circulating, the PS4’s 2019 release calendar still has us itching to see what Sony can deliver before the year is up. So we thought we’d go over all the titles that PS4 players are most excited to play. Make sure to check back as we’ll be updating this story as we learn new information.
