Sony president, COO, and CFO Hiroki Totoki has announced that following a suggested portfolio review, six of the twelve live service games the company had in the works have been pushed back to release by the Fiscal Year of 2025. There is a lack of clarity on what is going on with the other six live service titles.
For those unaware, the Fiscal Year of 2025 occurs between September 29, 2024, and September 27, 2025.
Totoki explicitly stated the following:
“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. [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].”
This news follows the news of Bungie, the Destiny 2 developer, facing considerable layoffs.
