The most obvious reason for this decision is that both consoles have achieved a good number of sales and until the new consoles start if the market is limited to them, sales will be lower. On the other hand we have the theme of backward compatibility, which will allow you to play the titles of the previous platform in the new one, with systems such as the Microsoft Smart Delivery which takes it a step further, allowing the game of the next generation to play the game in its improved version, no need to remaster or buy the game twice.
«The next-generation consoles will have compatibility with the previous ones, so We plan for the moment to make our new titles available to current and next-generation consoles«said Matsuda. «Therefore, in the future we will launch titles exclusively for next-generation consoles»
What Matsuda has not confirmed is if, like CD Projekt Red, games purchased in the current generation will receive the upgraded version of the next generation for free, in titles such as Final Fantasy VII Remake and Marvel’s Avengers, which are launched a few months after the arrival of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
