We know you adore your PS4 console, and that you’ve spent weeks and months filled with fun and enjoyment, but it’s time to slowly get used to life without it or with the PlayStation 5.
During the last meeting with investors, the management of Sony in charge of gaming announced that by 2025 the company will completely stop producing the so-called first-party games for the PlayStation 4, although the decision to do so is not visible in the first quarter of this year.
The PlayStation 4, like the Xbox One consoles, has already been removed from the list of supported consoles of many titles we expect this year and next, although it was originally announced that we will see these games on them as well.
If Sony has decided not to produce its own exclusives for the PS4, it is clear that other studies are unlikely to do the same and that most of them will focus exclusively on the PS5.
This is very clear according to the chart, which is included in the last briefing on the company's business segment - during 2019, as many as 90% of games were made for the PS4.
In the first quarter of 2022, there are no PS4 games (first parties), there are only those that will be on both PS4 and PS5 consoles at the same time, and by 2025 Sony will produce and release 50% of first-pair titles (exclusive) their studios exclusively for PlayStation 5, then 30% for PC and even 20% for mobile phones, ie. devices.
The company says PC and mobile gaming are hugely popular and want to keep up with market demands, which they will do later this year - PC games will account for 20% of titles released, while mobile platforms will close at least 10%.
During its life cycle, the PlayStation 4 console was shipped in over 117 million units. By the end of 2021, more than 1.5 billion PS4 games had been sold, more than any other console, including the previous record holder, the PlayStation 2.
And finally, since the PS4 came out in November 2013. , almost a decade ago, and it's time to thank him and put him on the pedestal of memory, along with many legends of the gaming industry.
