Sony’s Jim Ryan Teases a Response To Game Pass, Suggests Starfield Is Out of Their Hands
Jim Ryan has teased that they might have something planned in a response to Xbox Game Pass. He also comments on the release of Starfield.
In an interview with Tass, Jim Ryan shared an interesting comment on Sony’s response to Xbox Game Pass suggesting that they might share some news on it, but not today.
When asked what will Sony gave in reply to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass, he said that they have some news in this regard but it won’t be shared today.
“There is actually news to come, but just not today. We have PlayStation Now which is our subscription service, and that is available in a number of markets, ‘ said Jim Ryan.
Regarding the release of Starfield and other future Bethesda developed games on PlayStation consoles, he had a straightforward answer suggesting that this is something that is out of their hands.
“That’s a decision that is out of our hands, we’ll wait and see what happens. I look forward to learning about that, ” says Jim Ryan. “We just take a different approach. Our emphasis has been to focus on really steady, slow, but constant organic growth of our studios, selectively bolstered by acquisitions. We respect the steps taken by our competition, they seem logical and sensible. But we’re equally happy and confident, we’ve got a better launch lineup than we’ve ever had at any of our console launches.”
Starfield was originally revealed by Bethesda during their E3 2018 press conference. The studio was acquired by Microsoft recently and the acquisition still has some time left before it is officially complete. While some of the upcoming games by Bethesda Studios are still releasing for PlayStation consoles, others like Elder Scrolls VI and Starfield are up in the air.
