Last week, during its stellar PlayStation 4 presentation, Sony revealed a huge page of developers that were on board for the system, though no specific projects, aside from what was shown at the event, were revealed. But today, Sony did a little cutting and indicated that its development roster wasn’t quite so large.
A newly revised list has revealed that only about 28 developers are officially on board with PlayStation 4 development, down quite a bit from the 50+ initially listed. They are as follows:
Blitz Games Studios
CD Projekt RED
Just Add Water (Developments), Ltd.
Lucid Games Ltd
Ninja Theory Ltd
Nixxes Software BV
Team 17 Digital LTD
Stainless Games Ltd
A lot of big companies are still on board for making games for the system, though some projects, like Namco’s Dark Souls II, still aren’t quite 100 percent confirmed just yet. We’ll likely get a better idea of what’s coming once E3 rolls around in a few months.
One thing you can expect, however, is a day one digital release for most major titles. Sony started the strategy a while ago with the PlayStation 3, and have confirmed that the process will continue with the next-generation hardware. However, here’s to hoping the hard drive is big enough, as games are slated to take up to 50 GB in space.
For that matter, let’s hope the connection speed moves along, too. We don’t want to wait all day for the whole game to download…
