Now on to even more exciting news! By FY2025 Sony wants half of their game release lineup to come from PC and Mobile games. And for a little clarification, FY stands for fiscal year. Here in the United States the fiscal year runs from July of the previous calendar year till June of the current calendar year, in most states. Now Sony has not specified which fiscal year they are talking about. I say this because, Japan has its own fiscal year from April of the previous calendar year till March of the current calendar year. The United States fiscal year and Japan’s fiscal year do overlap for 3 months from April till June. So it is possible we will see PC and Mobile games released from Sony in that 3 month overlap.
