The most recent Sony financial call reveals that the company has no plans to phase out the PS4 anytime soon. Sony has told investors that first-party games will stop being released on the PlayStation 4 in 2025. It's clear Sony is looking to phase out the console but this won't be happening for a few years.
Sony's latest financial report reveals that 65% of the PlayStation Store revenue comes from the PS4 and 69% of PlayStation Plus subscribers are on the PS4. The PlayStation 4 is still earning Sony a lot of money so it looks like the company is pushing back any plans to phase the older console out. This means new first-party games will still be released for the older console alongside the PlayStation 5 which has been notably difficult to find in some regions.
While Sony is still looking to include the PS4 in new releases, some third-party developers have already begun phasing it out. Support for the PlayStation 4 is expected to continue for several years still.
