Sony hopes to have at least half of its games on PC and mobile devices by the year 2025.
During Sony's annual investor day, a chart indicated that only a quarter of its games will land on PC and mobile this year. It appears the company has seen the benefits of its recent PC releases, which have included previous PlayStation exclusives like God of War, Days Gone, and Horizon Zero Dawn, all of which have contributed to a substantial increase in sales. Sony is forecasting that its PC sales will increase to $300 million in 2022, an impressive increase over last year's $80 million.
The news doesn't come as a huge surprise. Sony acquired PC-porting specialists and brought in a previous Apple Arcade head to lead the company's push into mobile. It has been clear for some time that Sony has a plan to bring its games to a larger audience.
Jim Ryan, President of Sony Interactive Entertainment, said during his presentations, "PlayStation Studios historically has executed wonderfully in the delivery of a strong portfolio of narrative rich, graphically beautiful single-player games."
Ryan said, "We have the opportunity to move from a situation of being present in a very narrow segment of the overall gaming software market, to being present pretty."
Ryan announced that Sony is currently working on 12 live service games and that the release of the PS4 will be phased out by 2025.
Two of Sony's major PC releases were previously released for the PS4.
