Sony Is 'Carefully Monitoring' the Risk of Delays to Upcoming PS4 Exclusives”

Sony is confident that COVID-19 will not affect its Games and Network Services business and believes it won't cause any detriment to the current fiscal year despite limiting bandwidth usage across its PlayStation Network and slowing download speeds in both the US and Europe.

Speaking during an earnings report, the company confirmed that it is looking to "expand Warframe to more platforms, such as the next-generation consoles and other devices.' No release date was announced, although it's possible the game may arrive in time for PS5 and Xbox Series X's launch this holiday season". This includes game studios with planned release dates this year.

In a blog post, Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO Jim Ryan explained that the move was being made to help out with the COVID-19 pandemic.

It's no surprise that as more and more states in the US are adopting clear shelter in place policies that the number of gamers turning to their favorite console for entertainment is spiking and this move from Sony and others should help to keep the network from bogging down completely. Sony reiterated that it does not expect its network games and services to be affected by similar problems during this fiscal year. Sony says gamers should expect slower game downloads, but assures them that they will experience the same robust gameplay as normal.

However, he reported that he is evaluating the "risk of delays in production schedules for game software titles in both its first-party studies and its associated studies, primarily in Europe and the United States".
