Immediately after pulling Bungie to their side, Sony did not hesitate to announce that they plan to launch 10 Live Service games from here until March 2026, but PlayStation gamers are not only not happy but also worried. .
In the face of Microsoft constantly spending money to buy back and merge famous game studios everywhere, Sony could not stand by and watch anymore, they quickly spent heavily to bring Bungie a famous place. in creating shooting games and online games. Not long after that, they also said that Bungie would play a huge role in their long-term development campaign, specifically this studio would be responsible for helping PlayStation Studio create new Live Service games exclusively for the system. PlayStation consoles in the years to come. Many PS gamers have expressed great concern because Sony is known for its quality Single Player games before, and if they focus on other areas now, how will the quality of new games be? Their famous IPs such as GOW, Last Of Us, Uncharted, …. What will happen when Live Service games need a lot of manpower not only in the development stage but also in the operation and maintenance stage? Will this be the time when single-player games come to an end?
Many gamers feel sympathy for Sony because now if they have more Live Service titles, they will not only make a temporary profit, but also a very good preparation for their online services such as Plus and the upcoming Spartacus project. In addition, they also pointed out that Sony has been expanding the scale of its PlayStation Studios (this is why they rarely spend money to buy other studios) so that each studio can develop multiple projects at the same time. a time. Accordingly we have:
Guerilla is developing a new Live Service game alongside Horizon. Insomniac is recruiting for Multil Player development and they are still developing Spiderman 2 with Wolverine. Naughty Dog is focusing on finishing Factions 2. Firesprite is working on two single-player and one multiplayer games at the same time. Lucid, Deviation games, Haven studios, Firewalk and Bungie are all developing a new live service game.
With 9 – 10 Live Service titles, it’s clear that Sony still has enough human resources to develop more of their old IPs, should we hope that they will have some measure to manage the quality of the games? This is very tight to avoid the game situation is much but the quality is not.
