More PS4 Games To Be Unveiled At Gamescom 2013
Ryan Martin / 4 years ago
Sony has confirmed in an interview with GameReactor Magazine, via Gematsu, that it intends to reveal a lot of games at the Gamescom 2013 event this August. Since the PlayStation 4 was revealed back in February we saw Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack, Driveclub and Infamous: Second Son all announced at the launch event for the new generation console. At E3 2013 we also saw Sony reveal The Order 1886 and plenty more independent titles.
Sony’s Computer Entertainment Europe boss Jim Ryan said that there are over 30 games in development for the new console and we will see 20 of those launch within the console’s first year on the market. This only includes games being developed by Sony’s internal teams so we can of course expect many more games to come from third party publishers and game developers.
—You didn’t announce that many new PS4 titles that we haven’t heard of before from a first-party perspective [at E3]—we got The Order: 1886. What’s the first-party policy going to be like from PlayStation 4?
Ryan: We very consciously, at the event in New York on February 20 of this year, we showed a lot of software. We showed a lot of first-party software. What we did at E3 here was really show some updates to those games, and, as you mentioned, introduce The Order: 1886. There’s a lot coming. I’m sure you heard from [SCE Worldwide Studios boss] Shu [Yoshida] that he has—just his studios—he has 30 games in development. 20 of them are going to ship within the first year of the console’s life, and of those, 12 are new IP. So there’s a lot going on, it’s just that we need to keep stuff back. We’ve got Gamescom for us Europeans—we need to have something to show at Gamescom, don’t we?
