According to Sony Software Product Development Chief Scott Rhode, the world might be focusing on E3 when it comes to new game reveals, but he’s plenty focused on Greenlighting more games that might not be unveiled until later this year or next. Speaking on the Playstation BlogCast, Rhode talked about the fact that he is based in San Diego but journey’s up to the Sony Playstation headquarters a couple of times of week.

During his most recent trip, he took in the sites of the campus while also having a number of meetings geared towards greenlighting even more games for the PS4, as well as the PS Vita. While Rhode wouldn’t be specific about what kind of games might be coming down the pike, he might have dropped a hint or two:

“Today it was various meetings in the morning, greenlight meetings talking about new games that I can’t talk about on this podcast, then right into having lunch with Greg Johnson, the original creator of ToeJam & Earl, who also worked with Doki Doki Universe, that’s his baby. He is a very fascinating guy to just sit and talk to and one of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet in your life.”

The specific mention of Johnson is interesting if only because he recently attempted to get Toejam and Earl: Back in the Groove funded using a Kickstarter. The goal for that project fell short by about $90,000. Perhaps the good news of increased revenues for the PS4 and Vita that surfaced yesterday has convinced Rhode his company can foot that final $90,000 bill.

    Sony are well known to have basically every AAA 1st party studio working on games.
    God of War likely began development before Cory Barlog returned to Santa Monica in August 2013, it’s likely on course to release 3 years after Ascension, as a 3 year development cycle is normal for that series.
    Which makes it a March 2016 release, we should see in-game footage for that.

    Guerrilla’s new IP has been in development since 2010, this one had been rumored to be a Fall 2015 release, before Uncharted was penciled in for that slot, with Uncharted moved to Spring Guerrilla’s sci-fi, open world action RPG Horizon will very likely stomp all comers this holiday!
    The likes of TLG, Eight Days and The Getaway were never canceled, most likely placed on hold until PS4 had a substantial install base, which is the case now.

    Obviously Naughty Dog will likely have new Uncharted 4 footage, PSX was amazing and it’s been 6 months since that demo was put out.
    GT7 is probably well underway, another likely candidate for a 2015 release, especially with the 20th anniversary happening in 2018, most GT games have come earlier, rather than later, with around a 2 year gap between releases.

    Media Molecule & Sony Bend also have new IPs in the works.
    London could still be working on Eight Days and The Getaway, only for PS4 now.
    TLG, maybe a new Gravity Rush but for PS4.

    Besides Horizon Guerrilla also has at least one other title in development, potentially a new Killzone or a Resistance game, which is likely being handled by the awesome Guerrilla Cambridge studio.

    Add in Level 5’s *bigger than White Knight Chronicles” title, Quantic Dream’s new IP (another game years in the making since before 2013).
    So many big games could be ready to show.

    Not to forget the brand new re imagined Ratchet & Clank, probably
    visually on par with the movie’s awesome look, that will likely get it’s
    debut at E3, with a Fall release date.

    With Kaz’s recent comments on making huge investments in Playstation 1st party and new projects this will likely just be the tip of the iceberg for Sony’s development might.

    E3, along with Gamescom, TGS and PSX are all gonna be phenomenal for Sony.
    Very exciting times for gaming.
