Sony is ending the PlayStation Plus Collection

Sony announced today that they are getting rid of the PlayStation Plus Collection. If you are not familiar with it, Sony offers a collection of classic PS4 games to play on the PlayStation 5. Basically, the idea is to give new PS5 owners a library of old games right out of the box.

This news only affects the PS Plus Collection. Sony says that they will continue to add games to the PlayStation Plus Game Catalog as well as the monthly free games for PS Plus Essential.

Here is the full statement from the official PlayStation Blog:

We also wanted to provide an update on the PlayStation Plus Collection that has been offered as a benefit to PlayStation Plus members on PS5 since 2020. On May 9 the PlayStation Plus Collection will no longer be offered. If you haven’t redeemed the titles in this collection yet, you can still do so until May 9, which will enable you to access those titles even after this date for as long as you remain a PlayStation Plus member. 

We will continue to add to our growing PlayStation Plus library of Monthly Games and Games Catalog, so be sure to check monthly for new titles to redeem. We thank you all for your support of PlayStation Plus and we hope you enjoy this month’s lineup.
