Speaking with Gamreactor (transcribed by Gamatsu) SCE Europe CEO Jim Ryan said that they’ve got more up their sleeves for the PlayStation 4 and that it’ll all come out at Gamescom this year.
“We’ve got Gamescom for us Europeans—we need to have something to show at Gamescom, don’t we?” said Ryan in response to being asked about the number of first party games that was revealed at E3 this year.
“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.” Ryan continued.
With many first party titles announced at Sony’s event on February 20 it seems Sony decided to take a step back and let third party developers such as Ubisoft and EA have the limelight for a bit. The only real first party title we saw from Sony at E3 was The Order: 1886.
It looks as if Sony has a lot to announce over the next few months, something which I’m pretty excited about.
For those interested; Gamescom is one of Europes biggest games fairs which runs this year from August 21 to 25 in Cologne in Germany.
