Sony confirms that there are no plans to get rid of the PS Plus Collection on PlayStation 5, even after the PlayStation Plus revamp.

p>Sony made some major changes to PlayStation Plus when it released the PS5. Not only did the PS5's debut see Sony start offering three games to PlayStation Plus subscribers every month instead of the usual two, but it also saw the introduction of the PS Plus Collection. Whereas most free PS Plus games are only available for one month at a time, the PS Plus Collection games are more permanent, with all 20 that were available at launch still available to this day.

The PS Plus Collection is a lineup of 20 popular PlayStation 4 games that subscribers can claim at any time. Once they do, the games are treated like normal PS Plus titles in that PlayStation gamers will have access to them as long as they remained subscribed to the service. It's really a great deal, especially for anyone that missed out on any of the games when they first released on PS4. However, there's been some concern that the PS Plus Collection might be going away.

Recently, Sony announced that Persona 5 is leaving the PS Plus Collection, the first game to do so. If PlayStation Plus subscribers don't claim Persona 5 by the time May 11 rolls around, they are out of luck. This combined with the PS Plus revamp announcement has left some fans thinking that the PS Plus Collection will be going away entirely, but Sony has confirmed that's not the case. Even after the PS Plus revamp happens in June, the PS Plus Collection is here to stay.

The downside is that even though the PS Plus Collection games will remain available to subscribers after the revamp, the changes coming to PS Plus means it's even less likely that new titles will ever be added to the lineup. After all, some heavy hitters are coming to the new PS Plus tiers at launch, and it seems like those games would've been perfect fits for the PS Plus Collection.

For the uninitiated, Sony is revamping PS Plus this June to combine it with PlayStation Now and offer three tiers to its subscribers. The PlayStation Plus Essential tier is PS Plus as it exists now, whereas the PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium tiers offer subscribers access to hundreds of more games. At launch, this will include Death Stranding, God of War, Marvel's Spider-Man, Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Mortal Kombat 11, and Returnal. Unlike normal PS Plus games, these titles will be rotated in and out, meaning fans won't get to claim them and keep them like they are able to with the PS Plus Collection.

Regardless, the PS Plus Collection still offers fans an incredible value, even with Persona 5 leaving. It's really a bonus on top of all the other perks, like the monthly free PS Plus games, and so while it may be disappointing to some that it doesn't seem like the service is going to expand, at least it's sticking around for the time being.
