Speaking to Axios, PlayStation Studios chief Hermen Hulst covered the clear preferentialism of PC and PlayStation 5 as the vanguard of the company's products and ventures. On the re-release of games like Days Gone and Marvel's Spider-Man on PC, these sales "allows us to continue to invest–to invest even deeper into their projects" and bring more and more talented individuals under the Sony umbrella. Ergo, the economic strain of developing these big-budget games diminishes.

With all of these shiny, sparkly things to see on the horizon, those who cherish their trusty PlayStation 4 might be feeling a little FOMO. As Axios points out, there are no backwards-compatible titles at the time of writing when you look at the lineup for 2023.
Fortunately, Hulst has considered this in the strategy for Sony going forward. "We certainly don’t want to forget the millions of active players on PS4, and we want to ensure there are great games for them as well," answered Hulst. "We’re evaluating it on a case-by-case basis."
This is a somewhat promising answer, particularly when you think about the diversification of Sony's enterprises with moves into both the PC and mobile markets. Furthermore, a handful of PS5 exclusive titles did come to PS4 - like Horizon Forbidden West or Sackboy: A Big Adventure.
