Sony says generation defining games for PS5 will not arrive until 2022.
Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan said that the games that “define the generation” will not arrive on the PlayStation 5 until 2022. In addition, he made a special emphasis on the current PS4 community.
In a new interview with the Russian news agency TASS, Sony CEO Jim Ryan said some interesting things about the future of the PlayStation 4 and what will happen to its huge community:
“There are about 114 million PS4s in the world, the number of which will be switched to PS5 initially, if we take them into account, is a small number. But for us the PS4 community will certainly remain incredibly important for 2020, 2021 and 2022. Because in those three years, that will be the largest PlayStation community.”
- PS5 shows its exclusive games in a new trailer
- NVIDIA enables DLSS in four new games to boost performance
- Microsoft wants Bethesda games to arrive on Xbox first
Thus, it is possible that the PlayStation 5 will receive some high caliber games like Spider-Man: Miles Morales, but that does not mean that the PS4 will be forgotten, at least for the first years. Now, for those lucky enough to have their new PS5, you’re probably wondering when the heavy titles will arrive? Well, Jim Ryan commented that they still have to wait:
“History tells us that it’s in the second or third year that the developers really get their groove on. Usually, developers need a little time to familiarize themselves with the hardware. But it’s probably in 2022 that they will see some wonderful things just as it was 2015 or 2016 for the previous generation; when they started releasing the games that define the generation.”
