Sony CEO Jim Ryan has announced that PlayStation 5 will receive more exclusive games than other PlayStation consoles. In a conversation with a Japanese business newspaper Nikki (paywall), Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO said the company is quietly investing in first-party games development and is studying new acquisitions to create more development opportunities.
“We have quietly invested in high-quality games for the PlayStation 5 and we’ll make sure the console will have more exclusive games than ever,” said Ryan. We have frequently been involved in mergers and acquisitions, including Insomniac Games, in the United States. We will not rule out this option in the future in the future. “
In the coming months, PlayStation 5 owners can look forward to Housemarque’s return on April 30 and Insomniac’s Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart on June 11. Horizon Forbidden West is set to launch in late 2021 and God of War Ragnarök was announced via a short teaser for the release on PS5 this year last September, although no new information has emerged about the new Santa Monica Studio title since then.
PlayStation recently shut down its oldest developer, Sony Japan Studio, but Ryan told Nikkei that the company remains committed to the Japanese market. “It’s important for us to provide software that is suitable for the Japanese PlayStation community, and the PS5 has included a lot of software from Japanese developers since its inception,” said Ryan. “We will continue to strengthen our relationships with Japanese developers and release PS5 content suitable for the Japanese market.”
Ryan has also spoken out about PlayStation 5 stock issues, saying the company has asked its partners to ramp up production. “There are several reasons why it is difficult to get a PS5. Delivery during the coronavirus outbreak was very complicated and we had to limit distribution to the internet. The supply and demand for semiconductors is also tight around the world. We ask our suppliers to enable us to increase production, which will flow into the market this year “.
