PS5 boss Yoshida on Cancelling Games

As part of an interview with The Guardian, Shuhei Yoshida said “part of the pain of making new games is knowing that they won’t all get released.” Years ago, when I was in college, I was a game tester. There were MANY games that should have been cancelled, yet they were released. I do understand what Mr. Yoshida was saying.

PlayStation embraces new ideas, and many of them fail. We do a prototype, we evaluate, we decide whether to spend more time and resources, or we just stop. We cancel so many games,” Yoshida said. “I usually try to convince the developer that I’m trying to save them from getting stuck with this project.

Sony reportedly canceled a Days Gone sequel. Additionally, reporter Jason Schreier said Sony canceled a new Uncharted game.

Personally, I don’t care much about Uncharted anymore. The games have steadily gone downhill. I have Days Gone as part of PSN, but have not played it yet.

My next games of choice is either Jedi Survivor, Spider-man 2 or Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
