Sony expects to be done with making PS4 games by 2025, according to a recent investor presentation.
The company says it expects PS4 games to be a thing of the past by 2025. Currently, a lot of PlayStation games are launching on both PS4 and PS5. But according to Sony’s projections, this won’t continue for too long.
Estimated releases for 2025 are about 50% PS5 releases, according to the presentation. The other 50% include mobile games and PC games. PC accounts for 30% of their estimations, and mobile games account for around 20%.
Current examples of PS5 only games include Returnal, Deathloop and the Demon’s Souls remake. Other games like Horizon: Forbidden West are on both PS5 and PS4.
Expanding Beyond The PS5
Sony is also expecting to expand more into PC gaming. The company wants more games to release on PC in an effort to reach more people. They’re also investing more in mobile gaming.
Sony wants to move from a “console-centric” approach to a “future where large elements of our community extend beyond the console.” It’s no surprise they’re taking this approach, especially considering the current console shortages they’re facing.
Sony expects its PS5 supply issues to continue into 2024. Customers are still struggling to find PS5 consoles on store shelves, as Sony has had trouble meeting demand for the console.
Supply issues mean players haven’t been able to get their hands on a PS5 console. This is partly due to the lack of parts in the electronics industry, which is having a negative effect on stock across many companies.
And a Chinese tech company has claimed a PS5 Pro will launch in 2023. The company, TCL Technology, claims the PS5 Pro is in the works as well as a new version of the Xbox Series X.
