Sony Intends to Keep PS4 Players “Engaged and Happy” for the Foreseeable Future

Expect Sony to keep supporting the PS4 for at least a couple more years.

Sony has talked several times in recent months about how it believes in generations, and wants to deliver games on the PS5 that will only be available on PS5– but there’s still life left in the PS4 as well. PS5 launch titled Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Sackboy: A Big Adventure are both going to release for PS4 as well, while next year, Horizon Forbidden West will also launch as a cross-gen title.

And according to PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan, that kind of support is something that will continue for the foreseeable future, into 2022 as well. Speaking in a recent interview with GamesIndustry, Ryan said that the increased audience engagement the PS4 has enjoyed in recent months due to COVID has opened Sony’s eyes to its potential of continued growth even now, and the company intends to keep its audiences engaged with new content for some time to come.

“”Obviously, our eyes and our horizons have lifted with regards to what’s possible with that PS4 community, based on what we’ve observed over the last six months,” Ryan said. “That can be quite powerful, because in 2021, 2022… that PS4 community that we’ve spoken about, they will be the vast majority of people on PlayStations during that time. It is crucial that we keep them engaged and happy. And the last six months have demonstrated that we could do that to an extent that we didn’t think possible when we were setting our minds pre-COVID.”

This, of course, is not the first time Sony has publicly taken this stance. They’ve previously said that the PS4 will continue to be supported a few more years to come, and that there’s still plenty left that’s coming to the PS4 that audiences don’t know about.
