Shuhei Yoshida, head of the PlayStation indies division, has revealed how long it could take for the brand’s exclusive games to land on PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium.
playstation plus has recently added the 17 new games that join the service, also highlighting the disk size necessary to install them on PS4 or PS5. However, the Japanese company has also announced the two games that are leaving the subscription service in the near future, so there is little left to enjoy them in the different modes in which they are available. One of the big questions regarding PlayStation Plus is How long will it take for the brand’s exclusive games to arrive in the Extra and Premium modalities?something that already has an answer.
The person responsible for offering it has been Shuhei Yoshida, responsible for the PlayStation indie division at the moment, although he has a great background in the past as one of the great managers of the brand. Through an interview granted to the media Game Industrystates that PlayStation exclusive games will take six to twelve months to land on PlayStation Plus.
Our approach is that we like to help publishers manage the life cycle of a game. It’s like when a movie first opens in theaters and then goes to pay-per-view, streaming, or free TV. Each time it generates new income or a wider audience. In the same way, we believe in a premium release of a title, but after six months or twelve months, when game sales drop, inclusion in PlayStation Plus can help revive these games.
In this way, everything indicates that exclusive PlayStation video games will take around a year to land on PlayStation Plus from their official market launch. Of course this will depend on each caseso games like Horizon: Forbidden West or God of War: Ragnarok can last a year or more, while other proposals such as Haven’s first video game could reach the service in six months.
The new free PlayStation Plus Essentials games will be announced on September 28
Once the entire catalog of games for the month of September are available on PlayStation Plus, it’s time to set our sights on the titles that will be the protagonists in the month of October. The official announcement aims to take place on September 28at least as far as the PlayStation Plus Essentials titles are concerned, so it remains to be seen if PlayStation also launches the announcement of the titles of the Extra and Premium modes on the same date, as happened last month past.
