Seems Obvious Now: PS4 Exclusives Will Get Rolling Soon
It's not inaccurate to say PlayStation 4 is still a little thin in the exclusive department.
This holiday season is especially bare and with Xbox One getting Halo 5: Guardians, Forza 6 and Rise of the Tomb Raider, it's probably a good thing that Sony droppe the price of PS4 all over the world.
But after an eventful presentation during Paris Games Week, Sony has made one thing abundantly clear: PS4 exclusives will own 2016 and beyond. We already know about Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and Horizon: Zero Dawn, both of which will be legitimate Game of the Year contenders, as far as many are concerned. But now we've learned about Detroit, the new title in the works at Heavy Rain developer Quantic Dream, and that could be another GotY possibility. Okay, so it might not release next year but we know it's coming.
Then there's Gran Turismo Sport, a hugely ambitious new game from Polyphony Digital that should appeal to hardcore racers everywhere. It's also important to note that this is not GT7; i.e., the next full installment in the legendary franchise. That's a separate project. Plus, there's the launch date for Street Fighter V and a release window for No Man's Sky. As if that's not enough, PlayStation VR will launch and with it, we get Robinson: The Journey, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, and even Tekken 7.
Finally, we're still expecting Sony to announce a new God of War at some point, and that could be a gigantic holiday 2016 title. You never know. But the bottom line is that PS4's relatively bare exclusive lineup will get fleshed out nicely next year and beyond.
