The video game industry can be a difficult one because many games can be delayed from their original release dates. Sony is however adamant that the likes of Gran Turismo Sport and The Last Guardian will still come out in the calendar year of 2016.
SCEE Vice-President for Southern Europe Philippe Cardon commented via an interview with Challenges: “For many 2015 was to be the peak of the 8th generation before entering a phase of stability, but we believe that 2016 will be another year of growth. This will be a better year for software and a very big year for hardware.
We expect to still sell many consoles. And then there is Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Sony’s main event this year. This is our biggest release of this year alongside with Gran Turismo and The Last Guardian. And of course, PlayStation VR is coming.”
There was a rumor a while back that Gran Turismo Sport will be pushed back to 2017. This new piece of news suggests otherwise which will make fans of the game happy. As for The Last Guardian, many have been waiting for that game ever since it got announced in 2009. It’s great to see that it’s finally coming after so many years being in hiding.
