One Piece Pirate Warriors 5 Release Date
Coming directly to the point, there is no official release date for the game as of yet, as developers are currently focusing on One Piece Pirate Warrior 4 and releasing additional content for it. Basically, the information is non-existent about the new Pirate Warriors game. We believe Pirate Warrior 4 still has a lot of life left in it and is not going anywhere for the next 1.5 – 2 years. Developers are still bringing in DLC packs for the game and are working on further polishing the game.
One Piece Pirate Warriors 5 will probably come out in late 2024 or early 2025. Omega Force will continue adding new characters to the game through DLCs and will most probably focus on Pirate Warrior 4 for a few years more. Moreover, the Pirate Warrior 4 is the highest-selling and the most successful video game in the series, hence ending its circulation after just two years doesn’t sound like a move Omega Force is currently willing to make.
One Piece Pirate Warriors 5 Trailer
As there is no official information available about the game and as we said earlier the info about the game is nearly non-existent at the moment, and because of that, there is no official trailer for the game! But if you really want to enjoy the awesomesauce trailer of One Piece Pirate Warrior 4, we have embedded it below:
The trailer for Pirate Warrior 4 is action-packed and fast-paced; it drew the attention of many players around the world. The game attracted not only those who have watched the One Piece anime series or have read the manga comics but also those who have neither read the comics nor seen the anime series. The last game was a commercial success and there is no doubt that when Pirate Warrior 5 drops, it is going to shatter all the previous records.
One Piece Pirate Warriors 5 Characters
The characters in the One Piece Pirate Warriors video game series are consistently increasing. The first game featured 13 playable characters, the second featured 27, the third featured 37 and the latest game had 43+9 characters (so far nine new characters through DLCs have been introduced).
If there is one thing that One Piece has, it is a huge roster of characters. Omega Force could be adding all the previously seen characters in its video game series while also adding some more to the new game. Below you can find the complete roster that could potentially be added to One Piece Pirate Warriors 5.

One Piece Pirate Warriors 5 Gameplay
The One Piece Pirate Warriors series is popular for adopting the gameplay elements from their previous games. The Pirate Warriors 4 also contained many elements of previous games and sometimes the game also felt repetitive.
The thing that doesn’t live up to expectations in the One Piece Pirate Warrior games are the boss fights; if you leave some of them, most of the fights don’t offer much resistance. You can easily blow away hordes of enemies; admitted – it is pretty satisfying to crush hundreds and thousands of enemies like ants but at least there should be some challenge, some resistance that the hordes of enemies offer. This might be an area where we think Omega Force can improve upon in the next part, whenever that may be.
Another area where Omega Force could improve upon is to give players better control of the in-game characters. The gameplay is just so fast-paced that sometimes it becomes hard for players to focus on an enemy character. Moreover, we also noticed that the mid-air controls of the characters were really clumsy as well, so we hope to see better controls for it in One Piece Pirate Warrior 5.
One Piece Pirate Warriors 5 Rumors & News
There are no OPPW 5 rumors right now in the gaming community. Right now, neither Omega Force nor Bandai Namco seemed to be bothered about releasing the next Pirate Warrior game. Some discussions are happening on Reddit about OPPW5 that it can be released anytime soon, but everything is based on rumors at the moment, with nothing confirmed.
Also, there was a difference of 5 years between the third and fourth releases, so don’t expect One Piece Pirate Warriors 5 for the next one or maybe two years at least. Notably, the One Piece Odyssey is going to be the next entry in the One Piece video game series. The game was first supposed to be released by 2022 but it got delayed to Jan 13, 2023.

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 (2015)

The game starts with Roger’s final words before he gets executed by the world government for piracy and then moves to Red Hair Shanks who, before leaving his village, handles a young Luffy his iconic Straw Hat. The game was released for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo Switch & Windows.

The original Wano arc was ongoing during the time of the release of the game.

The strongest character in OPPW4 has to be Kaido, the giant evil who is an unstoppable force and the game’s main antagonist.
For players wondering if it is Luffy, No, it is not Luffy, though if the Giants were not part of the game, he would have definitely made it to the top spot.
