Sony Pictures Chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra has revealed that his studio is currently developing seven TV shows and three movies based on PlayStation games.As reported by Media Post, Vinciquerra announced the news while talking about Sony’s idea to have much more integration between all of its entertainment properties, including PlayStation.
“We have no specific plan yet,” Vinciquerra said. “But we have a program within the company called One Sony… You’ll be seeing a lot more integration of Sony companies together.”
He then discussed that Sony is developing three movies and seven TV shows based on PlayStation games, but didn’t go so far as to say if the Uncharted movie and The Last of Us TV series were included in that count.Vinciquerra also discussed whether or not Sony would be following the example set by Warner Bros. and potentially switch to a day-and-date release model for theaters and streaming services.
“I don’t think we’ll be in the day-and-date release business, no,” Vinciquerra answered. “I think the economic model for very big-budget movies require the windows that are in the flow now and we’ll continue with that… We think 30-day windows are probably the best, it will allow us to amortize our marketing over the two windows – theatrical and home entertainment – so we think that is the way to go.”

PlayStation Productions was launched in 2019 and Sony stated the new studio was “already in production on its first slate of projects and has set up shop on the Sony Studios lot in Culver City” and took a lot of inspiration from Marvel Studios.
