It will be a sombre day for PlayStation players who have signed up for the PS Plus subscription service…
It looks like 9 May will be a sad day for PlayStation Plus subscribers, as all PS Plus Collection games will be removed from the service on 9 May. At the launch of PlayStation 5, Sony tried to sweeten the deal for PlayStation Plus subscribers by giving them access to an excellent selection of high-quality PS4 games. Sony has dubbed the new discount on the PlayStation Plus subscription service the PS Plus Collection.
PS Plus Collection debuted with 20 games, including some of the most critically acclaimed must-have PS4 games.
Among the games available through the Collection are FromSoftware’s Bloodborne, Fallout 4, 2018’s God of War, The Last of Us Remastered, Monster Hunter World, Resident Evil 7, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and other popular titles.
Persona 5 was the first game to be removed from the collection. However, 19 other titles will follow. From Tuesday, 9 May, PS Plus Collection games will no longer be available to subscribers. This is a sad event, but the good news is that there is still time to claim them all. Because even after the cancellation, subscribers will still be able to access them as long as they remain PlayStation Plus subscribers.
PS Plus Collectible Games leaving PS Plus on 9 May:
- Batman: Arkham Knight
- Battlefield 1
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 – Zombies Chronicles Edition
- Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
- Days Gone
- Detroit: Become Human
- Fallout 4
- Final Fantasy 15 Royal Edition
- God of War
- Infamous: Second Son
- The Last Guardian
- The Last of Us Remastered

PS Plus Collection games are similar to the free monthly games. So unlike PS Plus Extra and Premium tiered titles. This means that even though the Collection will be discontinued, anyone who gets the games before 9 May can still keep them. Given the high quality of some of the games on offer, it’s worth getting these titles while they’re still available.
There is some overlap with some PS Plus Collection games, so some titles will still be available to those who have signed up for PS Plus Extra or Premium.
Regardless, it’s still sad that games have been removed from the range. The Collection offered significant value and ensured that early PS5 user who signed up for Sony’s subscription service had a substantial digital game collection from the outset. But with the new PlayStation Plus levels, it has become somewhat redundant. This explains why Sony is discontinuing this unique collection.
