On page 33 of the financial report that Sony has released, they are planning to expand their Worldwide Studios lineup. Worldwide Studios (WWS) itself has been filled by around 14 studios, all of which have produced successful titles. Examples include The Last of Us, God of War, and Uncharted.
They also didn’t forget the third-party studios that supported them in promoting the Playstation platform and its community. Sony has opened up huge opportunities for these studios such as sharing assets and technical assistance. This is also very helpful for independent studios to be creative in making their games.
Sony is now changing their market strategy where they are getting interested in adding their line of exclusive games to the PC platform. This change in strategy was originally planned for a long time, especially the success of Nintendo and Xbox in this regard that has made Sony even more interested in trying this new step.
BenjiSales, who is a consultant analyst for the gaming industry, said that their exclusive game release had no impact on Sony hardware sales. We can expect that Sony could provide several options for the release of their exclusive games, such as releasing every 2 – 3 years or waiting for a new sequel to be worked on like the case of Horizon Zero Dawn.
They have also stated that they will be adding a wide range of exclusive games to the PS5 in the future. They focus on the PS5 as a next-gen console that provides an experience you’ve never had. In addition, they also began to focus on immersive experiences such as Virtual Reality (VR).
