Earlier today, Sony announced that the PS Plus Collection would be no more by May 9, 2023. This program, first introduced in 2020 with the release of the PlayStation 5, was intended to give any new member of the Playstation Family 20 free games with the purchase of a PS5 and PS Plus Membership.
This instant game collection would give more time for more releases and show off some of the best titles released for the previous generation. However, the collection has already been trimmed down once as coincidentally, in May 2022, Persona 5 was delisted from the collection barring any new PS5 purchaser unable to collect the game. Alongside the remaster of the PS Plus Subscription introducing tiers and absorbing the game streaming service PS Now.
Sony may feel that with this new tiered subscription service, the PS Plus Collection is redundant as many of the games are included in the Extra Tier.
Fortunately, players who have already claimed any of the games from the collection will not have their licenses revoked, instead only affecting newly purchased consoles. This recent announcement means anybody on the fence about picking up either a PS5 or any tier of PS Plus should decide if the PS Plus Collection is something they are interested in.
