Well we aren't gonna get New IP's alone from Worldwide Studios. We got Forespoken this year ( not first party) but it counts. I thought it was quite an enjoyable game.I meant to say single player new IP AAA.
If you take out Bend other than SSM I don't know where it could come from:
Santa Momica New IP?
Naughty Dog is probably working on TLoU Pt III in addition to Factions.
Guerrilla is confirmed to be working on more Horizon.
Insomniac has Spider-man 2 and Wolverine after that.
Sucker Punch is likely making GoT2
Bluepoint never made a game of their own.
Media Molecule and Team Asobi are hardly AAA studios.
That's about it. Sony doesn't have that many studios when you take out the GaaS stuff (that explains the upcoming lack of single player games).
Right now it looks like we could go an entire gen with just Returnal and SSM new IP as the "big" new IPs introduced this gen.
The next Housemarque game will also be a New IP. Plus I'm sure there are other (2nd party new IP's brewing).
I really hate what they have done to Insomniac making them a marvel factory, but I guess financially it's best for them.
At least Remaster Resistance trilogy? That's one of my gripes. They have such a rich back catalog. Remaster and remake some of these PS1 / PS2 / PS3 classics and pad out your roster. It goes a long way with fan-service . I just don't get why they hate their legacy so much. Get Bluepoint on these things, expand them to have a BC division..
I also think they have another game in the works with Sumo Digital, plus more fruits to bear from Project Hero in China, and they just expanded to India. And Shu is doing good work with Indies.
The showcase was such a mess it's clouded he future when it seemed so bright and clear before. But expect outside Studios to be the ones dropping the new IP's. In Sony's defense the introduced many new IP's last generation, it would be dumb to not follow up with sequels.
