Sony hinted that the PlayStation 4 life cycle is coming to an end

Sony implied that the life cycle of PlayStation 4 consoles was coming to an end; the company did not publish the sales statistics of those systems in the first quarter of the fiscal year 2022; the very fact that PlayStation 4 was not available in the statistics was a vital indicator of the imminent disappearance of the last generation's console from the sale.

PS4 sales were published regularly from the 3rd quarter of fiscal 2014 to the 4th quarter of 2021. In the first quarter of this year, this item was eliminated by replacing it with PlayStation 5 sales. However, it is understandable that only about 1 million PS4 were sold in the last year, while the new PS5 sold more than twice as many units per quarter. In total, since its release in 2013, the PS has sold more than 117.2 million copies.

It is noteworthy that Sony sold 2.4 million PlayStation 5, 100,000 more than in the same period of the 2021 fiscal year in the first quarter of the year, and Sony plans to sell the new generation's record 18 million consoles throughout the year.

Sony had previously announced at the investors' meeting that she intended to stop the PlayStation 4 game by the fiscal year 2025. However, it is possible that the releases will be prepared by outside developers.
