Sony is working on improving the PlayStation 5 production, details

It’s been six months since the launch of the Sony PlayStation 5 series and 3 months since the Indian launch. However, besides the initial set of stocks at launch, things have not improved in terms of the availability of the console. Things are especially challenging in markets like India where we have had just two pre-order sales for the console since the launch. Taking stock of the situation, Ryan stated that the company is working on improving the situation. He stated, “We’re working as hard as we can to ameliorate that situation.”

In the interview with Wired, Ryan went on to add, “We see production ramping up over the summer and certainly into the second half of the year, and we would hope to see some sort of return to normality in terms of the balance between supply and demand during that period.” Regardless of the supply shortage, the latest-gen console lineup has managed to match and even beat its predecessor in terms of both sales as well as demand. As reported previously, Sony sold about 7.8 million units by the end of March. Sony also revealed that PS5 owners spend “81 percent more time” playing games and consuming content than PS4 owners back in 2013-14.

In addition to the supply shortage and work to improve the situation, Sony also shared its plans around future PS5 titles. As we outlined about, Hulst stated that 25 PS5 games are currently under development. Half of the 25 titles mark the beginning of a new IP. This news comes as Sony PlayStation 5 owners prepare for the upcoming Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart. Some of the titles that we already know about include Horizon Forbidden West, God of War Ragnarok, Gran Turismo 7, The Last of Us remake, and more.
