At this meeting, Sony also revealed its plans for the future. Sony is looking at investing more resources into the creation of new franchises specifically for the PS platform in the coming years. By 2025, Sony aims to allocate a balanced ratio to the PS Studio investments among established and fresh intellectual properties (IPs). It is targeting a 50-50 split.
A graph showed that Sony has recently concentrated on popular franchises like Horizon and God of War for the console. For example, in 2019, it allocated 20 percent of its investments to developing new properties. Looking ahead to 2023, Sony intends to stay inclined toward existing IPs, though the margin has shifted slightly. Approximately, it will channel 40 percent of its investments to new franchises.
Furthermore, Sony has expressed its intention to increase its investments in live service-related games, such as MLB: The Show and Destiny 2. By 2025, the company anticipates allocating 60 percent of its PS5 investments to live services. It will direct the remaining 40 percent to traditional games. Also, Sony anticipates increased sales of downloaded content and add-on content.
