The gaming industry as we know it has drastically changed during 2018. Big time developers such as EA and Activision are launching all types of different in-game feature that can make more money for them and players don’t like it. Not just that, but game developers seem to be focused on creating multiplayer titles since this is the simplest and most effective way for them to make money. Fortunately for PlayStation fans, Sony has a different opinion on what kind of games are successful.
Single-Player Story Driven RPGs
PlayStation is renowned for having some of the best single-player story driven RPGs exclusive titles and Sony has announced that this is going to continue in the years to come. Sony launched God of War, Horizon: Zero Dawn and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End during this past couple of years and all games became instant classics.
In fact, Xbox fans decided to switch over to PlayStation 4 because of good titles as God of War are. Therefore, no one should be surprised that PlayStation boss Shawn Layden made it loud and clear that Sony is going to keep focusing on single-player games during the upcoming future.
Sony Boss Speaks Out
Shawn Layden did an interview with the Game Informer recently and this where he made the following statement when asked about what is his opinion on single-player story driver RPGs:
“We have some of the best storytellers in the business working on Worldwide Studios projects, whether that’s Sucker Punch or the team at Bend working on Days Gone, and of course Naughty Dog and Santa Monica Studios. I think that’s a super strength of ours. I was very happy to see that three of the five of the game of the year nominees are Worldwide Studios games.”
This leads us to believe that 2019 is going to be another great year for PlayStation fans. Let’s hope that Microsoft manages to push out exclusive single-player games as well because if Microsoft doesn’t, Sony’s PlayStation fanbase will get even bigger.
