PlayStation Worldwide Studios Won’t Stray from “Strong, Narrative-Driven Single-Player Games

If there’s one thing we like about PlayStation, it’s the single-player games

You can play multiplayer games on just about anything, but if you want a good single-player game with a strong narrative, then PlayStation is where you want to be. As it turns out, PlayStation Worldwide Studios – the internal studio that develops exclusive PS4 games – will remain committed to deliver new, single-player games with a strong focus on storyline and narrative.

This news comes from PWS boss, Herman Hulst, in an interview with PlayStation Blog. During that interview, he was asked about what direction he sees the studio taking as we move into the PS5 era and beyond. His response was clear as day.

“We’re very committed to dedicated hardware, as we were before. We’re gonna continue to do that. And we’re very committed to quality exclusives. And to strong narrative-driven, single-player games.”

This is extremely good news. After all, you really can’t beat games like God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, or even Death Stranding, the latter of which is now on PC. PS5 exclusives are, arguably, some of the best games out there and most of the time that has to do with the storyline. But, that doesn’t mean that some things won’t change down the road. He went on to say the studio is open to new ideas.

“At the same time, we’re going to be very open to experimentation, to new ideas. Just trying things out to see what works. I think that’s also very much part of the DNA of Worldwide Studios.”

At this point, we’re just waiting to actually lay eyes on the PlayStation 5 and see just how it compares to the Xbox Series X. Hurry up, Sony – we’d like to learn more anytime now.
