Sony's strike force lies in its exclusives since the first PlayStation. The PS4 was no exception to the rule by delivering among the most popular games of the previous generation, between Final Fantasy 7 remake, God of War, The Last of Us Part II, Ghost of Tsushima… The Japanese company even has decided to target the PC with the recent port of Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone. So it seems logical that the PS5 follows in the footsteps of its big sisters by offering strong exclusives, capable of rallying players by the millions.
And according to Hermen Hulst, head of Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios, the console will serve its purpose well.
The man promises varied exclusives, between independent and AAA.
Sony wants to continue to vary its exclusives
Hermen Hulst seems happy with the direction of Sony and wants to confirm his philosophy with the PS5. In an interview for GamesIndustry , the man explains that the Japanese company offers games "different and diversified (…) from Sackboy to Astro Bot via Dream (…) The Last of Us Part II and Ghost of Tsushima".
But Sony is not going to stop there and Hermen Hulst promises that the firm "will continue to create games like this because they are the heart and soul of what we do in our offices". The head of Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios is focused on quality experiences and new ideas, he says.
Hermen Hulst is interested in various games and welcomes the partnership between Firewalk Studio and Sony. Firewalk Studio is going to create its first AAA online game and brings together several names from the video game behind cult franchises such as Destiny, Guitar Hero II, Bioshock Infinite, Mass Effect or even Apex Legends… A great team!
Suffice to say that Hermen Hulst tease more than ever the fruit of this future collaboration by referring to Firewalk Studio, less than a week after the announcement of a partnership with Sony.
When we know that Sony masters its portfolio very well and only collaborates for promising games, real video game blockbusters, owners of the PS5 have something to be happy about. Without forgetting the future buyers of the console, when the latter will have a normal production rate. Note that this is not the first time that Sony evokes these famous exclusives. Jim Ryan made theexact same promise earlier this year.
