Sony Teases More PlayStation 4 Game Announcements for Gamescom
SCE Europe CEO Jim Ryan has confirmed that there will be more PlayStation 4 games unveiled at the upcoming Gamescom event in Germany.
When questioned about the small quantity of first-party titles shown at E3, Ryan said, “There’s a lot coming. I’m sure you heard from [SCE Worldwide Studios boss] Shu [Yoshida] that he has–just his studios–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.”
Twelve new IPs?! Impressive. Perhaps Sony just wanted to wait for the right time to really drive home its big PS4 games: “…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? What we did at E3 was show some updates to those games, and, as you mentioned, introduce The Order: 1886.”
Well, that, and you sent Microsoft looking for a Burn Heal.
