Dynasty Warriors Origins Will Appear on PlayStation 5 in 2025

The usage of the new subtitle Origins marks a departure from the mainline series, which has used numbers. The latest numbered entry, Dynasty Warriors 9, came out in 2018. However, Koei Tecmo has also used subtitles for spin-offs in the series, such as the multiplayer-focused game Strikeforce and the strategy RPG Godseekers.

The reveal trailer also showed that in lieu of existing historical figures like Zhao Yun, Dynasty Warriors Origins will have the player control their own avatar who can also wield various weapons.

Omega Force’s chief Tomohiko Sho previously teased that there would be three new title reveals in 2023. However, the team ended up only revealing two titles: Fate/Samurai Remnant and the now-outgoing mobile game Dragon Quest Champions.

At the end of 2023, the Dynasty Warriors series producer Akihiro Suzuki expressed his regret for not revealing a new console game within the year. Tomohiko Sho also confirmed that the team had moved the last title reveal to 2024. That title has since been confirmed to be Dynasty Warriors Origins.

Dynasty Warriors Origins will be available for PlayStation 5 in 2025.
