The end of an era.
While the PS4 has been home to some incredible games since it first launched in 2013, Sony themselves have been directly involved in the making of some of those modern classics.
Bloodborne, Uncharted 4, Horizon Zero Dawn, Marvel’s Spider-Man, God Of War, Death Stranding, The Last Of Us Part II, Ghost Of Tsushima, Miles Morales, Gran Turismo 7, Horizon Forbidden West and God Of War: Ragnarok were all fantastic PS4 games, and they were all published by Sony.
And now, if reports are accurate, there will be no more, as Sony may have published its final ever PlayStation 4 game.
When it was originally announced in December 2022, Lost Soul Aside was intended to be a release on PS5 and PS4, with no set release date given at the time.
However, as reported by Push Square, a new trailer for the game released from the ChinaJoy convention came with the following blurb: “Lost Soul Aside is an action RPG developed on Unreal Engine 4 and planned for release on PS5 and PC. It features a unique combat system, stunning graphics, and an engaging story. The gameplay revolves around fluid and intense battles as players face a variety of powerful enemies and challenges.”
With the PS4 launch apparently ditched in favour of a PC release instead, that would mean that Sony’s final game to be published on the PlayStation is now MLB The Show 23, which launched in March earlier this year.
While there will still be non-Sony published games coming to the PlayStation 4, the platform’s own developer does not have any future releases lined up for the console, including this September’s release of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, which will be a PS5 exclusive.
The new trailer for Lost Soul Aside, which still doesn’t have a release date but does include some absolutely jaw-dropping imagery that the PS4 probably couldn’t technically handle, can be seen right here:
