Ex-PlayStation boss says that the cost of game production doubles each generation
Sony famously hiked the price of PS5 games this generation, and the former chief executive of the PlayStation Worldwide Studios has a pretty good idea why.
In an interview with Bloomberg, Shawn Layden — an executive who oversaw six console launches before standing aside ahead of the PS5’s arrival — explained that the cost of game development “seems to double in cost every platform”. With big-budget PS4 games costing $100 million to produce, Layden believes that PS5 games will hit the $200 million mark and continue to expand from there.
