More than 30 PS5 games will leave PS Plus in May
A big chunk of PS Plus titles will soon be gone for good as they leave Sony's subscription service
Sony has revealed that more than 30 PS5 games will be leaving PS Plus next month. The list includes several appealing titles, including Marvel’s Spider-Man, Resident Evil and Shenmue 3.
It’s a surprise to see a first-party game like Marvel’s Spider-Man leaving the service, but at least Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is set to remain.
Sony made the announcement on the PlayStation Blog and said that the games were leaving as part of its “normal content refresh”.

After a relatively slow start, PlayStation Plus Premium and Extra have become a greater value proposition. Several of the best PS5 games are now available on Sony’s service, but not every title.
You’ll still have to pony up full price for the likes of Gran Turismo 7, God of War: Ragnarok, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and many more. Sony still hasn’t added any PSVR 2 games to either of its subscription tiers, which hopefully will change in the future.
Head to the ‘Last chance to play section’ on the PlayStation Plus Collections page on your PS5 console to see all the games that are due to leave in the next few weeks. Not got PS Plus? You can save with our PlayStation Plus discount code.
