It looks like PS4 still has at least a couple of years left.
The PlayStation 4 launched on November 15, 2013. So it is quickly approaching its tenth anniversary – and it looks like it just may make it.
In addition to its efforts on PC and mobile devices, Axios is reporting that “Sony may also still make games for the PS4, despite only having PS5 exclusive console games announced beyond 2022.”
“We certainly don’t want to forget the millions of active players on PS4, and we want to ensure there are great games for them as well,” PlayStation Studios chief Hermen Hulst says. “We’re evaluating it on a case-by-case basis.”
At the moment, the biggest game that is yet to come to PlayStation 4 is God of War: Ragnarok, which is also coming to PlayStation 5. The future beyond that is less clear, although players can likely expect annual games like MLB The Show.
As for third-party games, those are likely to continue as long as the PlayStation 4 market remains large enough to sustain new releases. At the very least, expect sports games and indie games for a few more years.
