Welcome to daily Tech News 🎯
In the latest generation of consoles, the long list of high-quality exclusive titles on PlayStation 4 gave it an edge over Microsoft’s Xbox One console. It seems that Sony is not yet ready to give up that advantage. In an interview with CablingPlayStation Studios director Hermen Hulst notes that the group has more than 25 titles in development for the PS5. In addition, more than half of the titles will be new intellectual property. This means that PlayStation 5 users will be able to see many new characters, stories, and games for years to come.
Right now, we know of four PS5 titles that PlayStation Studios is developing as exclusives. This includes Horizon Forbidden West, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, God of War: Ragnarok, and Gran Turismo 7. As you may have noticed, all four titles are sequels. Therefore, one can consider it a good thing that the developers are planning to introduce new stories and not only rely on well-known names to attract players. The last generation of consoles saw the rise of new IPs like Horizon Zero Dawn, Ghost of Tsushima, and Until Dawn. So it seems that Sony is still open to experimenting and finding new success stories.
Of course, it’s not that PlayStation Studios has a shortage of big-name IPs. The group is home to some of the biggest and most respected names in the industry. This includes Naughty Dog (Uncharted series), Santa Monica Studio (God of War series), Polyphony Digital (Gran Turismo series) and many more. In fact, Hermen Hulst himself is a co-founder of Guerrilla Games, which developed Horizon: Zero Dawn.
However, the biggest problem that PlayStation fans face is not the lack of games, but the lack of consoles. The PS5 has been incredibly hard to come by and usually sells out in a matter of minutes. However, the console will be available for pre-order in India starting May 17 at 12 p.m. M. Hereinafter.
