“Just as importantly, Horizon’s success establishes Guerrilla as a priority developer with Sony. The implications of this mean that Sony could start having a staggered schedule with a Naughty Dog game releasing one year and a Guerrilla one releasing the next, with plenty of other developers to throw in between as well.”

Sony has a lot of priority developers that leads to a healthy annual release schedule on various fronts.. Let’s not diminish their importance just because Uncharted & Horizon exist.

Exaxtly. Santa Monica is as much a priority studio as ND and Guerilla.

I would have said the main ones are

NaughtyDog
Guerrilla Games
Sony Santa Monica
Sucker Punch
Media Molecule
Sony Japan

Could release two per year at that rate

Sony did an awesome job giving me games in 2017, and it looks like it'll continue on in 2018 and beyond. I usually end up buying of their major 1st party games from their various studios.

Guerrilla has been one of Sony's priority studios. Its just that a lot people know them for their shooting games. No one expected them to make an awesome open world game like Horizon.

And withe the forecast they have this year it's only gonna get better

Sony distributed their forces among their priority developers such as Guerrilla Games, Naughty Dog, Sucker Punch, Media Molecule and Insomniac.

Sony where careful of not branding one super developer by letting other be relegated. Sony understood that having a great team of skillful developers pays more than having Bungie or 343 doing the same thing for ten years. I'm glad Sony is helping Hello games develop their dream too.

Sony knows how to run a console effectively.

I LOVE Sony's first party studios. Nothing but brilliance, usually. I also enjoyed The Order 1886.
