Sony is not just strict­ly a gam­ing com­pa­ny, they are a major media dis­trib­u­tor as well. The com­pa­ny is attempt­ing to bring PlaySta­tion to a wider audi­ence and grow the busi­ness by mak­ing movies an TV shows based on its series. Dur­ing Sony’s lat­est Cor­po­rate Strat­e­gy meet­ing, PlaySta­tion boss Jim Ryan stat­ed the com­pa­ny cur­rent­ly has 10 projects in development.

We will con­tin­ue to strength­en the expe­ri­ence for our com­mu­ni­ty through col­lab­o­ra­tion with part­ners and across Sony Group. One espe­cial­ly note­wor­thy col­lab­o­ra­tion is in our ongo­ing work with Sony Pic­tures to adapt key game IP for film and TV enter­tain­ment with 10 projects cur­rent­ly in var­i­ous stages of devel­op­ment,” Ryan said.

Of course, he did not list any of the projects, but we are already aware of some of them. Sony recent­ly formed PlaySta­tion Pro­duc­tions, which is in charge of devel­op­ing these films and TV adap­ta­tions. This is what we know of so far:

  • Unchart­ed movie — star­ring Tom Hol­land and Mark Wahlberg; set for release in Feb­ru­ary 2022
  • Ghost of Tsushi­ma movie from John Wick­’s Chad Sta­hel­s­ki; no cur­rent release date
  • Twist­ed Met­al TV Show with Dead­pool writ­ers; no cur­rent release date
  • The Last of Us TV Show with Craig Mazin for HBO; no cur­rent release date

There is one PlaySta­tion series that will not be get­ting a TV or movie, God of War. At least not yet. A spokesper­son for the com­pa­ny recent­ly con­firmed this to the New York Times.

Ear­li­er this year, Ryan spoke about Sony’s future ideas for addi­tion­al TV shows and movies, hint­ing at fur­ther announce­ments. he said the Unchart­ed movie and the Last of Us TV show are “just the begin­ning of the expan­sion of our sto­ry­telling into new media and even wider audi­ences. Sony is a cre­ative enter­tain­ment com­pa­ny, and enter­tain­ment has nev­er been more important.”
