Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida has informed Game Informer the company is working on a “free-to-play type game” for the PlayStation 4. Free-to-play has been one of the features that has been mentioned in the past. It turns out this was a part of Sony’s plan for the PS4. This will bring a lot of variety to the publisher.
“We are developing a free-to-play type of game, but we haven’t announced it yet. We don’t have any subscription-based games in development, but we are not crossing out any type of game; if it makes sense for a particular project, we’ll look at adopting different models. We are open for any types of models. Overall, we are increasing investment in the digital side of development, either through digital titles like Journey that we’ve been doing, but also trying to add more service-based models to our games going forward, like DLCs or additional features post launch.”
