PlayStation, the leader in the game console world, announced the launch of its new PlayStation 5 next year. In addition, many rumors have emerged that the new game console will be far superior to the old ones.
Nevertheless, the administrative changes within PlayStation are never ending. The company is making a significant change in its management. Hermen Hulst , who previously worked at the Guerilla studio, will head the Worldwide Studios and make the PlayStation 5 with a lot of great games.
In addition to Hermen Hulst, an important change took place under the name Shuhei Yoshida. Former president Shuhei Yoshida has launched a new initiative to provide more independent games to the platform.
Hermen Hulst, head of PlayStation, is a co-founder of the Amsterdam-based studio Guerilla. To remind you of Guerilla, we can give an example of the Killzone series. Sony acquired Guerilla in 2005, and Hulst held a number of roles at Sony.
One of the biggest innovations Hermen Hulst developed was the development of the Decima game engine. This game engine was used in many games. But the most recent example is Death Stranding , which will meet the players two days later.
On the other hand, Yoshida’s new task will be to launch an initiative to support independent producers in the company. Although it is not clear what this initiative will be, we have to say that Yoshida is known as a person who likes independent games in the industry. Sony is also looking to improve the industry.
While Sony wants to improve its support for independent producers, it doesn’t forget to think about other game developers. The company’s CEO, Jim Ryan , said in an interview that developers who have developed games for PlayStation 5 have experienced and are unhappy with their experiences.
While the explanations that increase our expectations about PlayStation 5 are made so much, it seems quite difficult to wait another year. We really can’t wait to see if Sony really brings the features and innovations that we’re talking about.
