PS5 Sony first-party

It comes as no real surprise to hear, but most of Sony's first-party studios have now shifted their focus to the PS5. This is according to industry analyst Daniel Ahmad, also known as ZhugeEX. Ahmad's been a reliable source of inside information for years now, so we've got little reason to doubt his claims over on ResetEra.

"In general, most of the focus for Sony first-party is on PS5 right now," he writes, summarising the Japanese giant's plans for 2019. Again, it's not surprising to hear this. We have to imagine that developers like Guerrilla Games started thinking about next-gen as soon as Horizon: Zero Dawn shipped, while long-awaited titles such as The Last of Us: Part II, Ghost of Tsushima, and Death Stranding have surely been considered for PS5.

Things get a little more complex, however, when Ahmad brings up "a couple of unannounced games (already existing IP) with PS4 in mind". Obviously this information isn't as solid as the above, but it certainly makes for an interesting detail. We'll have to wait and see on this one.

In any case, this definitely won't be the last time you read about the PS5 this year. Things are only going to get crazier from now, and you can expect the internet to implode if Sony lets something slip.
