PlayStation 4 has been around since 2013 and things are starting to wrap up when it comes to the current generation. This is something we’ve known for quite a while but has now been confirmed by Sony itself.
The Japanese platform holder has had a meeting with the investors and, in the person of CEO John Kodera has pointed out that the PlayStation 4 lifecycle is reaching its end after being five years on the market.
While it’s clear that the end of the generation is coming in around two years, it’s worth noting that Sony still has lots of titles to drop in that timeframe, such as Detroit: Become Human and Spider-Man this year, Days Gone, The Last of Us Part II, Death Stranding and Ghost of Tsushima in 2019, just to mention the most relevant.
So, we can say all but that this generation is going to leave without any particular highlight. This is something Sony has already used us by the end of the last generation, when, just a few months before PS4 launched, PlayStation 3 received huge AAA games such as The Last of Us and Gran Turismo 6.
It’s going to end rather soon, and that’s a given, but this doesn’t mean that more great stuff isn’t on its way.
