Sony Says PS5 Lineup Is ‘Biggest In PlayStation History’

Eric Lempel, PlayStation’s head of global marketing, has revealed that the PS5 lineup is by far the ‘biggest’ in the brand’s entire history.

PS5 Lineup Is Biggest In PlayStation History

Speaking on the latest PlayStation Blog podcast in wake of the PS5 games showcase last week, Lempel name-checked a number of titles including Gran Turismo 7 and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart as examples of long-running franchises that are continuing for its next-generation console.

This, by far, is the biggest lineup we have ever had in the history of PlayStation. We’re so fortunate that we have so many beloved titles and characters that people have grown up with over the years. I’m amazed at how well our studios are delivering against the launch timeframe. Today you saw really big, well-established franchises that people have known for years, [such as] Gran Turismo, Ratchet and Clank.

Then you’re seeing somewhat new franchises making an appearance on PlayStation 5, like with our big closer [Horizon Forbidden West]. Then we have one of my favourites, which is Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Miles has become such a beloved character, people are absolutely obsessed with him. And now you’re going to get to play him on PS5.

The PS5 is scheduled for release in holiday 2020.
