On January 24, 2023, Forspoken launches as a PS5 console exclusive at the same time as Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, Monster Hunter Rise, and Dead Space. It results in a very busy start to the year that lasts through February and March. Over the next 24 hours, official release dates for Final Fantasy XVI, Diablo IV, and Star Wars Jedi: Survivor are anticipated to further flesh out the schedule.
