Speaking in a recent meeting between Sony executives, CEO Jim Ryan outlined two directions for development “meaning transfer to the company’s business model“. Ryan talked about expanding to other platforms, and confirmed that he will launch at least 12 games, distributed as recurring subscription services, in the coming years.
“History shows that PlayStation Studios has a long list of content-rich single-player games with excellent graphics, but we are certainly limiting ourselves to a very small segment of the gaming market.” Mr. Ryan said.
“By expanding into the PC and mobile segments, and not to mention… the subscription service as well, we have the opportunity to transform the situation, from representing a narrow niche to being pervasive. to the entire game software market, and we will achieve that by being ubiquitous“.
He continued: “I think if we’re on the right track, if we’re smart and thorough in our closing, we have a chance to increase the number of people who play our game, the number of people who enjoy our game, and also the number of people who spend money to buy it. our game“.
Also according to the chart published during the meeting, CEO Jim Ryan said that by 2025, the presence of PS4 will be blurred in Sony’s reports, like the way PS3 has gone back in the past.
The first PlayStation exclusive game released by Sony on PC was Horizon Zero Dawn (HZD), in August 2020. Last May, Days Gone landed on PC, earlier this year we saw Kratos tear down the curtain separating console and PC, stepping onto PC with huge sales.
To date, HZD has sold 2.3 million copies and grossed $60 million, Days Gone has sold 852,000 copies and grossed $22.7 million, God of War has sold 971,000 copies, with sales revenue reached 26.2 million USD. Surely Sony didn’t stop there, as CEO Ryan presented an astonishing chart.
In the slide show, we see projected numbers for fiscal year 2022, when revenue from PC games will more than triple. This shows that Sony will continue to announce new ports, continue to bring PlayStation blockbusters to the PC platform.
Until now, Sony has remained tight-lipped about future projects, gamers can only speculate based on leak not long ago. The list is correct when it comes to Days Gone, God of War coming to PC, and the name Ghost of Tsushima is still being speculated.
Not only focusing on developing for the PC segment, Mr. Ryan affirmed that Sony will bring some “classic game“Go to mobile, think this is an opportunity for Sony to touch”millions of gamers are outside my platform“. To realize this claim, Sony Interactive Entertainment has recruited Nicola Sebastiani, former chief content officer of the Apple Arcade service, to run the mobile operations.
