Sony has updated the official support website for the PS5 confirming the list of PS4 games that currently do not work for PlayStation 5 through backward compatibility.
PS5 will be able to play 99% of PS4 games through backward compatibility, however, there will be a couple of them that won’t be playable on PlayStation 5, at least not at launch. These games have been confirmed through an update on the backward compatibility FAQ for the PS5.
According to Sony, the following PS4 games are confirmed to not support PS5 backward compatibility at launch.
Afro Samurai 2 Revenge of Kuma Volume One
TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2
Just Deal With It!
Shadow Complex Remastered
Robinson: The Journey
Hitman Go: Definitive Edition
If you want to play any of these games on your PlayStation 5, the bad news is that they won’t work on your new console, at least not at launch. The good news is that a future update might add support for these games.
