In a conversation with Nikkei, Ryan mentioned that the company is going to be investing into the consoles first party line up all while continuing to accelerate its in house development.
He said “We have been quietly but steadily investing in high-quality games for PlayStation, and we will make sure that the PS5 generation will have more dedicated software than ever before,”
He also went on to say “We have repeatedly engaged in mergers and acquisitions, including Insomniac Games in the US. We will not rule out that option in the future.”
The focus on PlayStation exclusives is likely due to Sony’s acquisition of a number of development houses such as Bethesda and Zenimax media. Although they have recently closed down Sony Japan Studio, Ryan went on to say that they will still be creating for the Japanese market.

He also talked about the current supply of the PlayStation 5 currently available, Ryan said that Sony had requested that manufacturers increase the productions of the console.
“Supply under the new coronavirus was very complicated, and we had to limit distribution to online. The supply and demand for semiconductors is also tight worldwide. We are asking our suppliers to allow us to increase production, which will flow into the market this year.”
