Sony to Remove PlayStation Plus Collection Library in May

Sony has confirmed that it will remove the PlayStation Plus Collection library of games on 9 May 2023. The 19 PS4 games that currently make up the collection on PS5 consoles can still be redeemed before its removal and will remain in your library and playable as long as you have an active PlayStation Plus subscription.

The PlayStation Plus Collection was introduced alongside the launch of the PS5 as a nice perk (or incentive) for players. On release, it contained a total of 20 games until Persona 5 was removed from the lineup back in May 2022. Sony’s Jim Ryan explained at the time that they would wait and see how the PS Plus Collection is received by players before making any decisions to expand the roster.

It seems like Sony will not be expanding the collection after all, especially given that larger libraries of games are already available to PS Plus subscribers via the various tiers on offer, with the highest tier offering access to catalogues of classic PS1, PS2 and PS3 (streaming only) titles from across PlayStation’s history.

The 19 games currently available on the PlayStation Plus Collection includes God of War, Fallout 4, Mortal Kombat X, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Ratchet and Clank (2016), Days Gone, Until Dawn, Detroit: Become Human, Battlefield 1, Infamous Second Son, Batman: Arkham Knight, The Last Guardian, The Last of Us Remastered, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Bloodborne and Monster Hunter World.

Subscribers will have until 9 May to add these titles to their library and will still be accessible after it’s all removed, granted you have an active PS Plus subscription going.

The PlayStation Plus Collection had potential at launch as many players waited to see if this was Sony’s answer to Xbox Game Pass. Unfortunately that wasn’t the case, as no new games were ever added to the library. It was a nice incentive for PS5 buyers – especially those new to Sony’s ecosystem – but it seems like the PS Plus tiers are the company’s priority right now.
