It's also coming to current-gen consoles but that isn't nearly as attention grabbing.
Scarlet Nexus

On May 7, Bandai Namco showed off a little reveal trailer for an upcoming action-RPG headed to the Xbox Series X. The game is called Scarlet Nexus and it's set to be a multi-gen title from the makers of the Tales Of... series of games. As the headline clearly indicates, the game is headed to the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC via Steam. However, it's also headed to the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One for those who aren't making an immediate jump to the new consoles.

Players assume the role of Yuito Sumerago, who is an expert in the use of psychokinesis. You will also get to explore the futuristic city of New Himuka. You will also "uncover the mysteries of a Brain Punk future caught between technology and physic abilities." I can also safely say that I never once heard the term "Brain Punk" before in all my life.

In the far distant future, a psionic hormone has been discovered in the human brain, granting people extra-sensory powers and changing the world as we know it. As humanity enters this new era, deranged mutants known as Others begin to descend from the sky with a hunger for human brains. Impervious to conventional weapons, those with acute extra-sensory abilities, known as psychics, are our only chance to fight the onslaught from above and preserve humanity. Since that fateful day psychics have been scouted for their talents and recruited to the Other Suppression Force, humanity’s last line of defense.
Bandai Namco says that the devs behind Tales of Vesperia have crafted a "complex story of bonds, courage, and heroism" here in Secret Nexus. Plus, thanks to your psychokinetic abilities, the world itself also becomes an important ally. At least that's what they're telling me here. You will be able to break off pieces of the environment and fling them at enemies. Not only does this help your combo but it also obviously causes a fair bit of damage to your opponents.

There was no release date set yet for Scarlet Nexus.
