According to a recent statement from Sony President, Hiroki Totoki made during an earning’s call, Sony has halved the number of live service games it plans on releasing in the “2025 fiscal year”. Instead of the previously announced 12, the company is now planning to release 6 live service games by the end of fiscal year 2025. This announcement comes after the announcement made earlier this year from PlayStation about its planned “rigorous portfolio review” of its live service games with Bungie. The company has yet to decide when these titles will be released.
A snippet of the statement made during the earning’s call via VGC reads:
“We are reviewing this… we are trying as much as possible to ensure [these games] are enjoyed and liked by gamers for a long time,” he said. “[Of] the 12 titles, six titles will be released by FY25 – that’s our current plan. [As for] the remaining six titles, we are still working on that.
“That’s the total number of live service and multiplayers titles [and] mid-to-long-term we want to [push] this kind of service and that’s the unchanged policy of the company. It’s not like we stick to certain titles, but game quality should be the most important [thing].”
