Sony exec teases more PS4 games at gamescom
“We need to have something to show at gamescom, don’t we?” SCE Europe CEO Jim Ryan replied when asked about the number of first-party games shown at E3 2013.
“There’s a lot coming,” Ryan told GameReactor, as transcribed by Gematsu.
“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?”
Ryan said that Sony “very consciously” showed a lot of forst-party software at the PlayStation 4 reveal in February, including Killzone: Shadow Fall and Knack.
“What we did at E3 here was really show some updates to those games, and, as you mentioned, introduce The Order: 1886,” he said of the comparatively more quiet E3 2013 presentation.
Gamescom takes place in Cologne from August 21 through 25. We’ll be there, unless the world ends. The PlayStation 4 is expected before the end of the year.
