Something many people were disappointed with in PlayStation’s E3 2017 Press Conference was the lack of dates for the upcoming exclusive titles. Games such as God of War, Spider Man, Shadow of the Colossus and more simply said 2018 or Early 2018. However it seems like you can probably expect to be playing all of these games sooner rather than later according to Shawn Layden.
In a recent interview with Telegraph Shawn Layden had this to say regarding their 2018 lineup:
“And that’s the nature of game development. No, I feel the lineup we have coming into the holidays this year – and GT will launch in the fall – I don’t know if you got to go to the pre-show [hands on event for media]? Well GT was heavily represented there on the floor. We think there is a lot of attention around that title from our company. And the stuff coming in 2018, all of that is coming in the first half of the year, so. Is it in the next 12 to 13 months? Most likely. So.”
So it seems that God of War, Spider Man and Shadow of the Colossus will be released between January and June 2018 which makes perfect sense to me. I personally saw no reason for any of these titles to come out in 2017 as Sony as already dominated the first half of this year with exclusives and they have many more still on the way such as Uncharted, Knack 2, Everybody’s Golf, GT Sport, Ni No Kuni 2, Hellblade, and many VR titles.
The only question marks are Days Gone and Detroit: Become Human both of which didn’t have any kind of date put on them. They too could release in 2018 but we will have to wait and see. Let us know in the comments if you’re excited to play these upcoming games.
