With just a few days left in June, PlayStation Plus subscribers are busy trying to figure out which games will be included in next month’s list of free games.

Free downloadable games are one of the perks of subscribing to PlayStation Plus, Sony’s paid PlayStation Network subscription service that offers gamers premium features such as early access to new games, discounts, and beta trials.

With July just around the corner, the internet has been abuzz with speculations from the millions of PlayStation Plus subscribers around the world, many of them trying to guess which of their favorite games will be made available at the cost of nothing in the next month.

In the official PlayStation Community page, the “Ps Plus Games Prediction for July 2016″ forum has lit up within the past week with various suggestions about the possible games in next month’s list.

The original poster on the thread suggests that because subscribers got “NBA 2K16,” a major AAA title, for free this month, a big dive in game quality should be expected in next month’s offerings.

For June, PlayStation 4 users got “NBA 2K16″ — possibly the most popular sports game for the console — for free with their PlayStation Plus subscriptions. “Gone Home: Console Edition,” another impressive title, was also offered for free. PlayStation 3 users got “Echochrome” and “Siren: Blood Curse,” while PSP and PS Vita users got “God of War: Chains of Olympus” and “Little Deviants.”

As such, PS Plus subscribers expect that Sony will be toning down the free games in July, with a free game buffet consisting of six indie titles or five indie titles plus a PSP game.

Nonetheless, there are also rumors that the PS Plus July free games could include popular horror titles “Resident Evil 6″ and “The Evil Within.” According to The BitBag, the rumors aren’t that far-fetched, as “The Evil Within” has already been handed out for free in Japan. Meanwhile, Sony could give away a remastered version of “Resident Evil 6″ now that it has unveiled “Resident Evil 7″ at the recently concluded E3 2016.

The outlet also notes that Sony could make “Everybody’s Gone to The Rapture” available for free for PS4 users. Gamers using older consoles could get less popular titles, such as “Resistance 3″ or the original version of “Resident Evil 6,” while PSP and PS Vita users could get indie titles.
