A brief of what SIE boss Jim Ryan said to GQ Magazine ;
“We find ourselves now in early 2021 with our development studios and the games that they make in better shape than they’ve ever been before. Particularly from the latter half of the PS4 cycle our studios made some wonderful, great games.”
“There’s an opportunity to expose those great games to a wider audience and recognise the economics of game development, which are not always straightforward. The cost of making games goes up with each cycle, as the calibre of the IP has improved.”
“Also, our ease of making it available to non-console owners has grown. So it’s a fairly straightforward decision for us to make.”
