Sony SHUTS THEM DOWN | Big AAA Exclusive Games for PS5, First Party IP Is “Special and Valuable”

Sony has long held a reputation for producing some of the most beloved and successful video game franchises in the history of the medium. With the release of the PlayStation 5, the company is betting big on its ability to continue this trend, investing heavily in big-budget, AAA titles from its first-party studios. Recently, Sony CEO Jim Ryan explained in an interview the company’s stance on first-party IP and its willingness to close down studios if necessary to ensure quality.

“The nature of the business is that not everything can last forever,” Ryan said. “And there’s always a finite number of the things that we can do, but we want to focus on that which we are very good at and that we feel can only really be done effectively through the lens of our first-party studios.”

Ryan went on to explain that Sony is committed to nurturing its first-party studios’ unique creative vision, even if it meant closing down studios that don’t align with that vision.

“What we have to do is make a call as to whether a studio is best suited to create new IP or better suited to contribute to the other work that’s being done across the organization,” Ryan said. “That has to be a very clear distinction, and sometimes we have to make the difficult decision to shut down a studio or shift its focus to better align with our overall goals.”

While the possibility of shutting down a studio may seem harsh, Ryan explained that it was necessary to ensure that the company’s first-party titles retained their high level of quality.

“Our first-party IP is special and valuable, and we need to do everything we can to protect it,” Ryan said. “In an industry where there’s so much competition, we have to make sure that our games are the best they can possibly be. That’s the only way to stay ahead of the curve.”

Many of Sony’s first-party studios have been responsible for some of the biggest and most successful video game franchises in recent history. Games like God of War, The Last of Us, and Uncharted have sold millions of copies and won critical acclaim for their storytelling, characterization, and gameplay mechanics.

As a result, fans are eagerly anticipating the release of Sony’s upcoming first-party titles for the PlayStation 5. Among these are sequels to some of the company’s most beloved franchises, including Horizon Forbidden West and God of War: Ragnarok.

The fact that Sony is willing to shut down studios that don’t align with its creative vision underscores the importance the company places on its first-party IP. While it’s always sad to see a studio close, it’s heartening to know that Sony is committed to producing only the best games possible for its fans. With a slate of big-budget, AAA exclusives on the horizon, the future looks bright for Sony and its first-party studios.
