Typically the biggest launches take place in the spring and fall.
During an interview with the German media Golem, the CEO of Sony Shawn layden has shared his impressions regarding the choice of release dates for the biggest PlayStation games.
"Since video games are a business, it is very important to know when to launch them" acknowledges Layden, who also indicates that it is at the end of the year when users are willing to spend more money. However, he considers that recently there is a favorable trend to launch Big-budget video games at any time of the year. "Horizon: Zero Dawn, which launched in February, enjoyed great success.
