When will we see the first games “really” new generation? With the release of consoles this month, gamers have received their first taste of the new era of video games through intergenerational titles, or early exclusives. But many know that hardware does not begin to take full advantage until after a few years, and that is something that will not change in the generation of PlayStation 5. Or, at least, it says so Jim Ryan, who predicts that we will see “wonderful things” from 2022.

In a recent interview for TASS, the current head of the PlayStation brand spoke about generational change on its platform, and on the intergenerational release strategy on PS4 and PS5. To this, the interviewer asks the following question: “When will developers start squeeze the whole new generation consoles, to develop games specifically for the new cycle, which cannot be performed on a PS4? “.

It’s in the second or third year that the developers find their rhythm Jim RyanTo this question, Ryan answers the following: “History tells us that is in the second or third year [de una plataforma] when developers find their rhythm for real. Developers usually need some time to get familiar with them. But it is probably in 2022 where are you going to see some wonderful things, in the same way that 2015 or 2016 were in the previous generation, when the games that defined the generation“.

So it seems that 2022 will be the key year for this new generation of consoles, at least in the case of PlayStation, and one cannot help but wonder what it is what the company will have prepared for those dates, as part of their plans. As for next year, PlayStation has confirmed that Ratchet and Clank and Gran Turismo 7 will arrive in the first half of the year, while the highly anticipated Horizon: Forbidden West is targeting the second half of 2021.

And on the horizon, see a new God of War for PS5, from the hand of Sony Santa Monica. We will see what the Japanese company has in store for us at the beginning of this generation. But, until then, we invite you to review the analysis of Spider-Man Miles Morales and the analysis of Demon’s Souls so that you know what their first exclusives of the new stage offer. And to top it off, this is our PlayStation 5 review.
