Sony is aiming for a greater frequency of exclusive releases.
Exclusives have been the bread and butter of PlayStation for as long as it has been around, and one of the primary reasons that the PS4 has seen such massive success across the world. That, of course, is something that Sony wants to keep going with the upcoming PS5 as well- in fact, they want to ensure that exclusive content is released at a faster clip.
In its recent corporate report, Sony talked about its goals to “innovate and evolve” the PlayStation platform, and one of the ways they plan to do that is by making “proactive investments to reinforce content IP.” The company goes on to say that in order to do that, it will “accelerate the enhancement and rollout of its portfolio of exclusive PlayStation titles.”
In the same report, Sony also talked about wanting to continue investing in and acquiring more studios to add to its first party lineup, which, of course, would be their primary way to ensure more exclusive content is released for the PS5.
Sony has already announced quite a few first party exclusives for the PlayStation 5, with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales launching this Holiday, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and Horizon Forbidden West planned for 2021, and the likes of Destruction AllStars, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, Gran Turismo 7, Returnal, and Demon’s Souls also announced.
Meanwhile, third party exclusives such as Deathloop and GhostWire: Tokyo are also due out in 2021, with reports suggesting that Sony has deals in place for several more major third party exclusives to come to the PS5 as well.
