First party games have always been central to Sony’s PlayStation strategy, and that’s become doubly true over the last decade or so. Looking at the success that the company has enjoyed with first party megatons like Uncharted, The Last of Us, God of War, Horizon, and more, it should be no surprise to anyone that this is an area that Sony wants to see continued growth in.

To that end, the company is investing another hefty amount for that purpose. In its recent quarterly earnings call, Sony said that it will be investing another $300 million into the development of first party software.

“We plan to increase software development expenses aimed at strengthening first-party software at our existing studios by approximately ¥40 billion [$308 million],” Sony said (transcribed by IGN).

Interestingly, Sony also says these games will release on “multiple platforms.”

“Going forward we aim to grow the game business by strengthening our first-party software and deploying that software on multiple platforms,” the company said.

In all likeliness, that’s referring to first party games eventually releasing for PC as well. It’s no secret, after all, that Sony is looking to expand its presence in the PC space as well, having already brought the likes of God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, and Days Gone to the platform. Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is also due out for PC this year- possibly in June.
