Live-service games don't always have the best reputations, but when done right, they are a great way for publishers to make a lot of money.

Now, Sony just revealed that it plans on releasing at least 10 live-service games in the next 4-5 years.

In a recent earnings call, Sony revealed that the 10 live-service games in development will all be released by 2026.

Furthermore, Sony has hired third-party studios to work on the said games, which would explain why we haven't heard much about them.

What is interesting here is that Sony's bread and butter have always been single-player games.

Then again, Sony has proven over the past two years that it's flexible.

It appears that the venture to live-service titles is just Sony's latest attempt at diversification.

If nothing else, Sony does have the manpower to work on a big live-service game.

With Bungie's expertise with live-service games at their disposal, Sony has a bright future in this extremely profitable corner of the gaming market.
