Sony Announcing More PS4 Games at Gamescom

PS4 Gamescom Titles

The next chapter of the ongoing console wars saga is about to kick off. With the likes of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One not set to hit store shelves until later this year, there’s still plenty of time for gamers to weigh their options and decide which platform they’ll invest in. When it comes down to it, though, it’s the software that’ll act as the biggest motivator for purchase, and apparently Sony has plenty of unannounced titles still left to be unveiled.

Jim Ryan, Sony Computer Entertainment’s European CEO, recently had an interview with Gamereactor, and it was during this exchange that he revealed that his company plans on showcasing even more PS4 games during this year’s Gamescom. Ryan didn’t go into detail about what Sony has planned for its Gamescom showing, but confirmed that Sony was holding back on a few game announcements just for the event.

“We very consciously at the [PS4 reveal] event in New York on February 20 showed a lot of software, a lot of first party software. What we did at E3 was really show some updates to those games and introduce The Order 1886.”

“There’s a lot [of games] coming. I’m sure you heard from Shuhei [Yoshida, president of Sony Worldwide Studios] that he has, just from his studios, 30 games in development. 20 are going to ship within the first year of the console’s life and of those 12 are new IPs, so there’s a lot going on, it’s just that we need to keep stuff back. We’ve got Gamescom for us Europeans and we need something to show at Gamescom.”

It’s anyone’s guess as to what these games will be, but a safe bet would be LittleBigPlanet 3 – a project rumored to be in development at Sumo Digital. Naughty Dog also has a second studio that’s been hard at work on a project whilst developing The Last of Us, but something along the lines of an Uncharted 4 reveal is a little premature given the recent critical success of the developer’s latest game.

Who knows, maybe even The Last Guardian will finally rear its over-sized head during the big European gaming convention.

Which games do you hope to see revealed by Sony during Gamescom? Would you prefer existing franchises or new IPs?

  1. I would love an uncharted 4 announcement but that seems very unlikely. At the same time who am I to say otherwise. Last of us was announced 6 months after uncharted 3 came out so its not impossible.

    • The Last of Us was announced at 2011′s VGA, only 1 month of after the release Uncharted 3 on November 1,2011.

      • Sorry thought e3 2012 was the premier but there you go only validating my statement even more.

    • Me too!

  2. God of War 4, uncharted 4

  3. I really want Fallout 4 :-(

    • The Fallout franchise is not from Sony as they are a 3rd party game series. Therefore, I doubt that it is one of the games to be announce.

      • But it still can be announced with it like Destiny did. But M$ has Bethesda by the balls, so I doubt that it will be announced.

  4. The Last Guardian is unlikely since Tretton himself said it was on hiatus. I’d absolutely love to see some gameplay footage of either The Order or Mad Max.

  5. I’m super excited for the new IP’s; I would love to see more of them announced. Playstation did such a good job this year. 12 out of 20 games that are launching in the first year are new IP’s, doesn’t get much better than that! The Order 1886 looked cool, wish there was more than a teaser cinematic, but it still managed to grab my interest. I’m all for sequels, but new new/fresh game play is what I’m looking forward to the most.

  6. I want to see more new exclusive IPs.

  7. When is Halo Trilogy for the Playstation going to be released. I know they made an announcement Microsoft and Sony were teaming up to have some of their excusive titles being ported to one and another console. Maybe that will finally end the huge console debate now once everything is settled.

    • Where did you see that?

  8. That’s about as factual as Jesus and Muhammad going out for a pizza together. Or a hot lesbian. Whatever fictitious probable you prefer.

  9. We will also prob see more exclusives and reveals at TGS as well.

  10. lmao…

    Microsoft: YEAH! WE DONT GIVE A F**K, LETS REVEAL EVERYTHING!

    Sony: Right guys, lets be smart about this. Lets reveal everything gradually throughout the year to keep everyone interested.

    i swear, ms are acting like complete amateurs this gen. what the hell is up? their pr team at the reveal and e3 are complete garbage and they are destroying their own console

  11. From all whats happened so far it looks like Microsoft wasn’t prepared to have Xbox one launch this year(gut feeling). Sony looked more set for a 2013 launch for the PS4.

  12. I would love a new Jak and Daxter from Naughty Dog. I was disappointed that there wasn’t one released for PS3

  13. It is beyond impossible, but I would be elated if QD announced a future Heavy Rain follow-up or even a resurrection of the Chronicles, now that Beyond: Two Souls is nearly released. Sadly, I think that time has passed.

    On a more reasonable front, Uncharted 4 would be grand.
