A dry run.

By Sony’s lofty standards, 2023 has been a fairly quiet year for first-party games. Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is of course a giant exception that’s due to hit store shelves later this year. Apart from that, though, there’s not an awful lot on the horizon, and it’s apparently due to some unforeseen delays. Indeed, recent insights from Sony reveal the cause behind this apparent gap – several first-party PlayStation games have experienced internal delays. As a result, the company’s bottom line has been impacted.

Delayed PS5 First-Party Games Impact Sony Profits

The revelation came to light through Sony’s quarterly earnings report, which cited the “Impact of changes in the launch dates of a portion of first-party titles” in its projections for Fiscal Year 2023.

Regrettably, specifics regarding the postponed games remain undisclosed. However, this development could clarify the absence of a major PlayStation event in recent times.

Anticipation remains high for uplifting PlayStation-related announcements in the latter half of 2023. Despite this minor setback, Sony continues to excel in the sales department for PS5 units. Impressively, the company has already celebrated the achievement of surpassing 41.7 million units sold.
