Sony will presumably release two new live service games for the PlayStation 5 in the coming months, which we don’t know anything about yet.
Sony CEO Jim Ryan chatted at a business meeting about the company’s plans in the games area and revealed an interesting fact: Sony will therefore be launching two more live service games in the current fiscal year; a release can therefore be expected by March 2023 at the latest, because that is when Sony’s current financial year ends.
Of particular interest: According to Ryan, we don’t actually know anything about either title yet. While Sony speaks of such a live service game in relation to MLB: The Show, this is explicitly meant just as little as the Destiny 2 in question after the Bungie takeover by Sony. By 2026, Sony wants to launch a total of ten live service games.
After Ryan explicitly excluded Destiny 2 from his count, he added that it had not yet been announced. This also eliminates Deathverse from Supertrick, for example. So what could it be? Sony recently acquired Haven Studios, headed by Jade Raymond, which is said to be working on a multiplayer title that hasn’t been announced yet.
There are also speculations about a multiplayer game by Naughty Dog based on the successful IP The Last of Us. Clarity is likely to prevail over the summer, because while there’s no E3, that’s still the period when the upcoming blockbusters for the fall and Christmas sales will be unveiled – in the case of Sony, presumably in a large issue of their own Video format State of Play.
