With the PS5 only a few weeks away, it’s going to be extremely difficult to get your hands on one. Even if Sony could produce an immense numbers of PS5’s to meet the demand, not everyone can afford one, especially with what is going on with the world. But, for those who will still hold on to the PS4, Sony has some good news for you. In an interview with Gameindustry, SIE CEO Jim Ryan has confirmed that they will continue producing games for the PS4 from now until 2022.
“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.”
Right now, many upcoming PlayStation exclusives, such as Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sackboy: A Big Adventure and Horizon 2: Forbidden West, will be made available for both the PS4 and PS5. These games, plus third-party titles like Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla and Watch Dogs: Legion, will give owners of the PS4 versions free access to the PS5 version.
The PS5 will arrive in the U.S. on November 12.
