Under the PlayStation Studios brand, Sony seems to release upto 25 PlayStation 5 games, and according to Wired’s interview with PlayStation Studio lead Hermen Hulst, nearly half of these games will not be spinoffs or sequels. The interview was with former Guerrilla Games managing director Hermen Hulst.
Some first-party Sony titles are:- Horizon Forbidden West (2021), Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart (June 2021), God of War: Ragnarok (2021), and Gran Turismo 7 (2022). Other 21 additional games seem to be huge shots for the PS5, especially when considering how slowly exclusives trick out. For next year, Gran Turismo has effectively slipped.
The PlayStation Studios branding is a little cloudy. To create all of the games, Sony might not be on the hook completely that games are unaccounted for. After it was announced first, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s head of global marketing, Eric Lempel, told GamesIndustry.biz that the branding doesn’t indicate that they outright own the developer; however it means they take it up as a first-party, and there are so many cases they don’t own the developer actually.
Sony outside partnered studios name drops indie games for Wired, including games from Haven Studios and upcoming Kena: Bridge of Spirits. Yet, its not clear whether similar titles and those exact will be counted in the 25 figure. As Sony didn’t confirm anything.
And if Haven Studios doesn’t sound familiar as it was just formed in March after the industry figure Jade Raymond left Google. And even if the games may not all be first-party games, I don’t think it’s a bad thing at all an outside developer made the Returnal, a PlayStation Studios game, and it’s a great example that received so much praise.
PlayStation Studios game MLB: The Show 21 is available on Xbox and Horizon Zero Dawn received a PC port, which means these games won’t be exclusive to the PS5. Sony’s most recent latest report shows that it’s sold 7.8 million PS5s, and maybe the company is trying to ensure to get its bases covered. Sony has additionally said it’s interested in carrying a greater amount of its games to the PC later on.
