It seems that Sony will stop making first-party PlayStation 4 games by 2025, as part of a gradual phasing out process.
By the year 2025, Sony plans to be focusing on PC, PlayStation 5 as well as mobile devices. As shown in the graph below, in the fiscal year of 2019, the development of PS4 and PS5 games is the priority.
Sony’s focus is shifting
By the end of the fiscal year 2022, we can see a mixture of PC, PS4, PS5 and mobile. However, the final column in the graph which represents the fiscal year 2025 only features PC, PS5 and mobile.
It should come as no surprise that the PS4 will gradually be phased out. After all, all console generations end eventually. We’ve already seen the likes of Gotham Knights drop last-gen console releases.
PS4 still has a few years of support
With that being said, I still think it’s great that Sony plans to support PS4 games for the next few years. This year alone saw Horizon Forbidden West and Gran Turismo 7 released on PS4 and PS5, with God of War: Ragnarok still to come.
