Sony Considers Returnal A Successful New IP For PlayStation

Documents from Sony Corporation’s Investor Relations Day have revealed that the hardware manufacturer considers Returnal, the PS5-exclusive title from developer Housemarque, a ‘successful new IP.’

The game was listed under the ‘New Growth Vectors: PlayStation Studios’ heading, which detailed games under the IP Powerhouse category, with both Returnal and Ghost of Tsushima listed as ‘including successful new IP.’

Returnal was released on April 30, 2021, and while we don’t have any sales figures for the game, the fact Sony labels it a successful new IP means it’s obviously been doing pretty well. And it should too, as we thought it was a fantastic game.

Sony revealed that it expects the PS5 Standard Edition to start breaking even in June 2021.
