We might have found next month’s PlayStation Plus games a little early, as three names have leaked for January 2022.
The leak comes from Dealabs user billbil-kun, (as reported by Video Games Chronicle) who’s accurately predicted the last four months worth of titles. The odds are in their favour, so let’s see what they are ahead of an official announcement.
They start with co-op mining FPS Deep Rock Galactic. The game was announced by developer Coffee Stain Studios to be heading for PlayStation for the first time earlier this month. It’d certainly give the game a boost launching onto PlayStation Plus to give the player count a good headstart.
Second is Codemasters’ excellent latest entry in one of its long-running rally series in the form of DIRT 5. An early PlayStation 5 launch title, those who like their racers muddy will definitely want to check this out. Finally, Persona 5 Strikers is an action RPG in the Dynasty Warriors mould, set after the events of RPG Persona 5.
Assuming these games are correct, they should be going live for PlayStation Plus subscribers on January 4. That’s the day after this month’s offerings Godfall: Challenger Edition, Lego DC Super-Villains and Mortal Shell depart. We’ve had no official confirmation from PlayStation yet, but we’ll update should we get it.
