PlayStation wasn’t at this year’s E3 again, but there’s still plenty for Sony loyalists to anticipate with the PS Plus July 2021 predictions. These include a leak which suggests one of the free games is a next-gen upgrade of a fantastic story.
Although Sony wasn’t at this year’s E3, plenty of third-party titles were still announced for the platform. In addition, Sony have finally let Cyberpunk 2077 out of the dog house and back onto the PSN store, which is good news for those who own a PS4 Pro or PS5.
The return of Cyberpunk 2077 is fantastic for those who refunded the game and have missed the company of Panam ever since, but even better news may await those lucky enough to own a next-gen Sony system.
When will the PS Plus July 2021 games be announced?
The free games are expected to be announced on June 30th. Sony always announces the next batch of freebies in the final week of the current month and it typically occurs on Wednesday.
As for when the next batch of games will become available, the PlayStation Blog says they will release on July 6th. This date is when Star Wars Squadrons and Operation Tango will be replaced, but Virtua Fighter 5 will remain until August 5th.
Make sure to claim Sony’s freebies for June as Star Wars Squadrons is a dream come true for us sci-fi nerds, meanwhile Operation Tango is a fun co-op game despite making you want to split up from your partner.
PS Plus July 2021 free games leak
A leak says that one of the free games for PS Plus in July 2021 is the A Plague Tale Innocence PS5 upgrade.
This apparent spoiler comes from ResetEra member Deluxera (via Gamerant) who also shared that its sequel, Requiem, would be revealed at E3. They also said that it would be announced for Xbox Game Pass on day one, and this proved to be true as well.
Focus Home Interactive’s A Plague Tale Innocence upgrade for PS5 and Xbox Series X was announced shortly after, and it is set to come out on July 6th. This doesn’t guarantee that it will be a PS Plus freebie, but it’s awfully convenient that its release date is when Sony’s new batch of gifts are set to come out.
A recent fresh leak says that the accompanying games on PS4 will be WRC 9 and Uncharted Lost Legacy. This rumour allegedly came from MyDealz, but – as pointed out by the Reddit source – the thread has since been deleted. In addition, many comments suggested that the thread looked fake.
Possible PS Plus Predictions
Our PS Plus predictions for July 2021 are A Plague Tale Innocence for PS5, Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights, and Uncharted A Lost Legacy.
We expect the A Plague Tale Innocence leak to come to fruition as Deluxera was right about everything else. Meanwhile, Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights comes to PS4 and PS5 on July 6th which is when Sony’s new batch of freebies will release for subscribers.
Ender Lilies also came out on Steam and Nintendo Switch on June 22nd, so we think its unique release date on Sony systems is pretty telling. As for Uncharted Lost Legacy, this is a lazy guess as it just has to happen at some point (update: we made this prediction before the reported MyDealz thread surfaced).
Our predictions were right for the very first time in the month of June as we accurately guessed Operation Tango. With A Plague Tale Innocence already leaked, let’s see if we can make it two in a row with Ender Lilies.
