With the release of PlayStation 5 later this month, fans will be able to enjoy the vast library of games first released on the PS4.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicle: India, Danger, Star Trek Bridge Crew, And some others. The publisher then deleted the blog post listing those games.so Statement to Engadget“There may be inaccuracies associated with Ubisoft titles that can be played on PS5,” the publisher said.
