A lot of the hype surrounding the PlayStation 4 lately has been in regards to its huge lineup of indie games set to arrive on the console. Sony caught some flak from gamers for having such a strong indie presence at Gamescom, but wants to reassure fans that there are indeed AAA PlayStation Exclusives in the pipeline.
Those games are being made, said Ryan
Sony Executive Jim Ryan explains why not all press conferences have to reveal a big AAA game like Uncharted or God of War.
“You are on a never-ending treadmill of these events and you have to get the balance between doing too much at one and not having enough at the next. We felt having that slightly different approach at Gamescom worked. But then you will have different days, when someone – hopefully me – will get on a stage and announce a triple-A exclusive, because those games are being made.”
Sony’s big launch titles for the PlayStation 4 are Killzone: Shadowfall, inFamous: Second Son, and Drive Club. So when will we hear about what’s next for the other big franchises from Sony like Uncharted 4 or God of War 4? Spike’s VGA Awards have been a spot for Sony in recent years, and could line-up as perfect timing with the PlayStation 4 launch as a hype driver behind the console.
As for Uncharted 4 in particular, we’ve heard rumblings about the game in recent months. Back in January of 2012, job listings for a next-gen project were posted on Naughty Dog’s website. While earlier this year the voice actor for Charlie Cutter spoke about a secretive project he’s been working on.
