Nothing is operating at full capacity at the moment. Well, nothing except for the health service, that is. So, it’s only fair to expect a number of delays to trickle through. However, thus far, Sony have no concerns when it comes to the PlayStation 5’s launch at the end of the year. And now they’ve also said all planned exclusives are currently on track to meet their release windows.
However, they are constantly monitoring the situation, which means things could change at any time. And change they probably will.
It’s only realistic to expect a number of new games to become delayed in the future. The odds are, as they say, against them. But it comes as a bit of a surprise to hear that there are no current concerns at play at the main company. Though, I’m sure they’re also working hard to keep it that way.
“Although no issues have emerged so far, Sony is carefully monitoring the risk of delays in production schedules for game software titles at both its first-party studios and partner studios, primarily in Europe and the U.S.”
The income from these games will, after all, prove very important in the coming months. And not even a company as big as Sony can say otherwise. Then there’s the chance that the PlayStation 5 will be delayed, causing further financial suffering. So, the more they can make now – by meeting previously promised deadlines – the better.
However, it has also became obvious in recent days that a delay is not the only consequence of this current situation. Resident Evil 3, for example, will be making its launch date. But the game could be in short supply, at least initially, in Europe. Then there’s the fact that many development studios have their staff working from home – possibly away from undomesticated technology. So, that could also hamper progress in a project’s development.
At least we know the Final Fantasy VII Remake ha already gone gold, so that should be safe. For the remaining exclusives, however, we can’t say anything for certain…
