Ghostwire Tokyo is the latest game from Bethesda and Tango Gameworks, the Japanese developer helmed by Resident Evil visionary, Shinji Mikami. Out now on PS5 and PC, there will be some gamers no doubt wondering if there’s a Ghostwire Tokyo PS4 version, and when this will launch.
Ghostwire Tokyo was officially revealed during Bethesda’s E3 2019 press conference in which the company also revealed another PlayStation console exclusive, Deathloop.
As part of an deal with platform holder, Sony, it was confirmed that both Ghostwire and Deathloop would only be available on PlayStation, as well as PC.

However, much like Arkane’s time-bending first person shooter, there is no Ghostwire Tokyo PS4 version. The game is locked to PS5 only with no indication that it will appear on Sony’s older system any time soon. Neither Bethesda or Tango Gameworks have commented on why this is the case. Although it’s a great looking game with a large open world and seamless action, we’ve seen more technically advanced games on PS4.
If we had to guess, this was likely a choice made by Sony. In order to help shift PS5 consoles and get more gamers to make the generational leap, the company has locked a number of its high profile hits on its new system such as Returnal and Ratchet & Clank: A Rift Apart.
Of course, there will be plenty of Xbox gamers feeling a bit left out, despite the fact that Microsoft now owns Bethesda. That said, the exclusivity deal is only in place for a year, meaning that both Deathloop and Ghostwire Tokyo could jump to Xbox Series X|S (and potentially Xbox One) soon. To help soften the blow of this long wait, there’s a chance both games could receive new upgrades and content.
In our Ghostwire Tokyo review Nick P scored the intriguing survival horror game a spooktacular 8/10, saying:
“Ghostwire: Tokyo was not the game I was expecting from Tango Gameworks, but I definitely enjoyed it. Blending magic-filled FPS action with Japanese mythology and an open world Tokyo that reminds me of the Yakuza series, it stands out from the crowd even if it’s not truly ground-breaking. Ghostwire has a lot of potential as a new franchise and I’m looking forward to seeing what Tango Gameworks does with it next.”
