PlayStation: Sony paid 329 million for exclusive deals


Sony’s latest financial report shows that the company spent around $ 329 million on exclusive deals between April 2020 and December 2020. These are mainly second-party contracts that will be fulfilled over the next seven years. Sony commissions external studios to develop games exclusively for PS4 and PS5.

Examples include the remake of Demon's Souls from Bluepoint Games, Sackboy: A Big Adventure from Sumo Digital or the upcoming PS5 title Returnal from Development studio Housemarque. All of these games are and have been produced exclusively for PlayStation platforms. However, the responsible teams are not owned by Sony and are therefore not part of PlayStation Studios. Since the funding period extends over seven years, it is very likely that some of these projects are still unknown.

It is still somewhat unclear whether this figure also includes exclusive deals with third-party studios. This would include the partnership with Square Enix in games like Final Fantasy 16 or Project Athia. Deathloop or GhostWire: Tokyo will also appear exclusively for PlayStation. A few days ago Sony also revealed news about in-house studios. So the release date of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart was announced. The game from the creators at Insomniac Games will be released exclusively for PS5 on June 11, 2021.
