Sony Exec Discusses “Demand” for Single-Player Games

In an interview for MCVUK magazine, Vice President of Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe, Warwick Light, discussed the performance of single-player games for PlayStation 4 in 2018.

According to the executive, the success of titles such as God of War and Spider-Man indicate a clear demand among PlayStation players for single-player titles even as online games seemed to reign throughout the year.

“While 2018 was indisputably a big year for Fortnite, it was also a year which saw us really act like a publisher and focus on our exclusive titles whether it was God of War, Spider-Man, Detroit or VR titles such as Astro Bot.

Buzzwords are one thing, what our players are demanding is another. There’s still a huge audience for games that offer the best in single player narrative with stunning gameplay, as witnessed by the enormous popularity of both Spider-Man and God of War in this year’s charts. I was just at the Golden Joysticks – God of War won five!”

If the great critical and commercial reception for such titles was not enough, Light’s comments are surely a promising sign that the single-player formula is here to stay.
