Sony has been playing catch-up with Microsoft when it comes to subscription services for some time now, but the company has taken some significant steps in the space. While the revamping of PlayStation Plus last year was obviously the biggest of those steps, another early introduction that sort of served as its precursor was the introduction of the PlayStation Plus Collection– a curated library of some of best PS4 games, available for free on PS5 to all PlayStation Plus subscribers.
That library, however, isn’t going to stick around for much longer. In a recent PlayStation Blog update, Sony announced that starting May 9, PlayStation Plus Collection will no longer be available. Of course, those who’ve already redeemed games from the collection will get to keep them (as long as you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber), which means you have until May 9 to do so in case you haven’t already.
Sony hasn’t given any specific reasons as to why the collection is being taken down, but presumably, the company wants to focus its efforts on its offerings via PlayStation Plus. “We will continue to add to our growing PlayStation Plus library of Monthly Games and Games Catalog, so be sure to check monthly for new titles to redeem,” Sony writes.
Shortly after the PS Plus Collection was first revealed, when asked if Sony had any plans to add more games to the catalog down the right, PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan said the company would take a “wait and see” approach. Clearly, Sony has made the decision to axe the collection and instead focus on PS Plus as a whole.
