379 Developers Have Joined PS4 Since Its February Unveiling

Sony has made known that 379 developers have joined the PS4 development community since the console’s unveiling in February, a stark rise in interest after the firm stood staunchly alongside the independent community, giving them the ability to self-publish their titles on PSN, completely eliminating the need to join a publisher.

“PS4 has earned great support from a wide variety of game publishers, including many indie developers. Since February 2013, the number of developers joining has increased from 126 to 505,” reads a blurb from a Sony release.

“Furthermore, from SCE Worldwide Studios, more than 30 titles, including 12 brand  new IP, are under development, including Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack, inFAMOUS: Second Son, #DRIVECLUB and The Order: 1886. 1 Out of over the 30 titles under development, 20 titles will be available within a year from the PS4 launch,” it added.

Sony also promised to “vigorously promote PS4 towards the launch as the next generation computer entertainment platform through further introduction of peripherals and attractive software lineup.”
