That’s what Sony Interactive Entertainment director Jim Ryan claims in an interview with Japanese Nikkei (translated by an editor of Gematsu on the ResetEra forum ). “We have been quietly but steadily investing in high-quality games for PlayStation. We are going to make sure that more exclusive software comes to the PlayStation 5 generation than previous generations.”
He continues: “We have already made mergers and acquisitions in the past, such as with Insomniac Games. We are not ruling out that option in the future.” Sony isn’t alone in considering studio acquisitions. PlayStation competitor Xbox, for example, bought the parent company of Bethesda, known for franchises such as The Elder Scrolls and Fallout, earlier this year. Microsoft previously announced that it would not rule out more purchases.
Ryan couldn’t do anything about the exclusive games that PlayStation 5 gamers can expect. lost. Exclusive PlayStation games such as Horizon Forbidden West, a new God of War, Gran Turismo 7 and Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart have already been announced.
Ryan also responded to the ongoing shortages of PlayStation 5 consoles. Again he refers to the coronavirus and a shortage of semiconductors as the culprits. Ryan wants to try to improve the situation during the year.
