The head of Sony, Jim Ryan, emphasized in an interview that PS5 owners will get big games much earlier in the new generation of consoles with a quality that has usually only been achieved in the second cycle so far.
In the latest edition of EDGE magazine, the head of Sony, Jim Ryan, didn’t just talk about the price of the PS5. He also referred to the “best PlayStation launch lineup ever.” It doesn’t just include the games that have already been released. Further blockbusters are also to be launched in the coming year.
According to Ryan, the lineup planned for 2021 is on a “different level than we’ve ever seen before.” “People rightly point back to our first-party Worldwide Studios games as being one of the defining things about the PS4 generation. But often less remarked upon is the fact that the really great first-party games came in the second part of the cycle. And we will have games of that quality, but we’re going to have them earlier in the cycle this time around.”
In fact, there are some big titles waiting for PS5 owners in the coming year, including Horizon: Forbidden West, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and the new God of War. It is also expected that Gran Turismo 7 will hit the market sometime in 2021.
Microsoft also wants to take off in the coming year. In a recent interview, Xbox chief Phil Spencer even emphasized that this year’s Christmas business is less relevant, as all available consoles have been sold anyway.
In fact, the range of games on offer is likely to have a noticeable impact on console sales for the first time in a year. Which of the upcoming games are you most looking forward to?
