Sony Have Learned From Their Mistakes And Will Be Careful About Announcing Their Games Too Early, Says Yoshida

The big problem with Sony has always been one of them announcing their games too early. It has been most egregious this generation, when quite literally every single first party Sony game has been delayed at least once in the run up to its release (not to mention multiple that have been announced very early, then disappeared off the face of the earth, presumably until we are closer to their release years from now), but it has always been true- even on the PS3, for example, games like Gran Turismo 5, The Last of Us, and of course, The Last Guardian, were prime examples of this excess.

According to what Sony Worldwide Studios head Shuhei Yoshida said at a panel at the PlayStation Experience (via DualShockers) however, it looks like Sony are aware of their propensity to announce games too early, and will be trying not to repeat that mistake in the future. Speaking at the panel, Yoshida said that Sony will be cautious about announcing games too early, noting that games on the PS4 required far more time to develop than games on previous systems.

This, at least, is good news- I am frankly tired of all games that I care about being delayed, and delayed further, because they were announced too early. Other companies have this problem too (Nintendo with Zelda, or Atlus with Persona 5, not to mention Square Enix with Final Fantasy 15), but Sony are undoubtedly the worst offenders. Here’s to them changing this habit of theirs.

      A little like Microsoft announcing Scorpio too early.

      Its coming next year, how is that to early. If it was like Sony it would be coming in the next 2-3 years like most if not all their games.

      Bad mistake from Microsoft, Another 12 months to go, Lean times ahead.
      PS4 Pro the most powerful console on the planet for the next 12 months,
      Xbone S less power than Std PS4, NO GAMES, Mulit platfom games inferior. What a disaster.

    MS should learn the same lesson. Halo 5, Quantum Break, Scalebound, Crackdown 3, ReCore, Sea of Thieves, Halo Wars 2, countless delays. That’s not even bringing up notorious cancellations like Phantom Dust, Fable Legends and Shangheist.
