The year 2020 has been absolutely terrible and next year doesn’t promise to be too much better. While the year has been awful thanks to medical and political reasons, in gaming it has been sullied by PS5 and Xbox Series X scalpers profiting $28 million on eBay. But, with next year on the horizon, lots of people want to know predictions for PS Plus in January 2021. Here you’ll find some PS Plus January 2021 predictions, and you’ll also find out when the free games could be announced.
You still have time left to download the December 2020 selection of Just Cause 4, Worms Rumble, and Rocket Arena. Just Cause 4 is the juggernaut amongst the aforementioned titles, meanwhile Worms Rumble and Rocket Area are fun multiplayer experiences to play with mates.
But, with everyone looking ahead to next year thanks to how awful the last twelve months have been, below you’ll find some PS Plus January 2021 predictions, and you’ll also find out when the free games will be announced.
When will the PS Plus January 2021 free games be announced?
It’s expected that the PS Plus January 2021 free games will be announced on December 30th.
This means that the PS Plus January 2021 free games are expected to be announced on the final Wednesday before the new year.
However, the above date isn’t official, meaning it’s possible that the freebies could be revealed on December 23rd, or they could be revealed on the Monday, Tuesday, or even Thursday instead.
In addition to the games expecting to be announced on December 30th, players will be able to download the games starting January 5th.
PS Plus January 2021 predictions
PS Plus January 2021 predictions for many include Hitman 2.
Hitman 2 is included in many PS Plus January 2021 predictions thanks to the upcoming Hitman 3, but Sony’s freebies rarely ever make sense by including predecessors to newly released games for said month.
Another estimation made by many is Godfall. This Gearbox published game hasn’t been a massive success since its PS5 release, so some have guessed that it could become free before its supposed release on Xbox in May.
In addition to Hitman 2 and Godfall, another prediction for PS Plus in January 2021 is Uncharted Lost Legacy. This is because the Nathan Drake Collection was part of the new year freebies for 2020, and Lost Legacy is the only game of the series yet to be part of the subscription’s monthly giveaways.
Whether the above estimations turn out to be accurate or not, it’s expected that there will another three freebies available with one exclusive to PS5.
As for our own wishlist or expectations, Horizon Zero Dawn is currently not part of the January sale so that could possibly be included.
Lost Legacy would also make sense because of how the Nathan Drake Collection kicked off last year, but logic and reasoning rarely ever works when guessing Sony’s monthly selection.
