Sony is aiming to acquire more game studios, the head of the company’s gaming division said on Thursday. The maker of the PlayStation also wants to increase investments in so-called live service games, which receive updates for years.
According to Jim Ryan, chairman of Sony Interactive Entertainment, the company is not yet finished with expanding PlayStation Studios.
In recent months, Sony has already expanded its gaming division after the acquisition of Bungie, the former Microsoft studio behind games such as Halo and Destiny.
Sony also wants to invest more money in live service games. Those are games designed to keep people playing for as long as possible, such as League of Legends. The games often get updates for years.
The company also expects net sales of $300 million (€281 million) for PCs for the current fiscal year. That’s almost a fourfold increase from last year’s $80 million.
As for hardware, Sony said the delivery issues with the PlayStation 5 will be over next year. The game console will then surpass the PlayStation 4 in terms of sales.
The production of the PlayStation 5, of which ten million were sold in record time, is struggling with shortages of parts and logistical problems. As a result, the consoles are less available.
