Sony recently delivered an investor briefing in which they reported to stop creating PS4 games by 2025. PS5 has indeed been performing well, although it’s evident that the great bulk of PlayStation’s potential audience has been on PS4, so Sony has continued to appeal to those who are about to upgrade.
Perhaps this is disappointing news for PS4 customers who are about to buy the PS5, however, Sony has declared that it would address the PS5 shortage of supply as the highest concern. The briefing also revealed a lot about Sony’s switchover from the previous installment in the series to the latest one.
Investor presentation report: Sony expects to stop creating PS4 games by 2025
Sony has indicated that PlayStation 4 games will be phased out over the following three years. The corporation bragged about the PS5’s early successes in comparison to its last-generation equivalent and stated that it plans to stop creating PS4 titles by 2025. The PS5 is expected to eclipse the PS4 in sales in the foreseeable future. Sadly, assistance will have to end at some time, and it looks like the deadline would be 2025 at the earliest.
Stopping the development of games on the PS4 will probably lead to significantly sluggish profitability because many people are indeed struggling to get the PS5, however, the company is giving it the first priority to overcome this issue until 2025. This again implies that PS4 players still have several years to switch to the most up-to-date system.
According to Ryan, “Sony wants to transition from PlayStation’s present console-centric strategy to a future where major aspects of our community stretch.”
Sony is putting a strong focus on expanding outside consoles, particularly into the PC realm. The firm intends to rapidly grow in sectors such as mobile and PC, with the goal of virtually doubling its present offering for both services by the year 2025.
