The open-world adventure game has not been shown publicly since June 2018, when it was demoed at that year’s E3 show in Los Angeles.
However, Sony Interactive Entertainment president Jim Ryan confirmed on Tuesday that the title remains one of the “blockbuster experiences coming your way on PS4,” despite the announcement that PS5 will launch at the end of 2020.
Announced in October 2017, Ghost of Tsushima is set during the Mongol invasion of Japan in 1274, a time of “warfare, chaos, and violent change.”
Players take on the role of Jin Sakai, a powerful samurai warrior whose adventure draws on Japanese history and the traditions of samurai cinema to craft what Sucker Punch calls “a gorgeous tale of revenge, empowerment, and hope.”
Is Ghost of Tsushima cancelled?
In May Sony said PS4 will continue to be PlayStation’s “engine of engagement and profitability for the next three years,” despite its next-gen console drawing closer.
At the end of the company’s financial year on March 31, 2019 Sony had shipped 96.8 million PS4 units, with 94.2 million sold through to consumers.
