The PS4 won't be short on exclusive third-party content following its launch. This year's GameStop Expo revealed that 20 third-party publishers and developers are partnering up with Sony to deliver exclusives for the new console. Some of what you can expect is Bungie offering content for Destiny, Ubisoft delivering content for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Watch Dogs, and Bethesda offering the exclusive Elder Scrolls Online beta.
Here's the full list (via Develop):
- Activision Blizzard (for Diablo III)
- Bethesda Softworks (The Elder Scrolls Online exclusive PS4 beta)
- Bluepoint Games (Unspecified "Sony classic" title)
- Bungie (for Destiny)
- Capcom (Deep Down)
- Disney Interactive
- Insomniac Games
- Nordic Games
- Sanzaru Games
- Square Enix
- Sumo Digital
- Take-Two (including Rockstar Games)
- Ubisoft (for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Watch Dogs)
- Warner Bros. (Batman: Arkham Origins)
- Zindagi Games
Interestingly, the list mentions exclusive content from Warner Bros. for Batman: Arkham Origins. However, Warner Bros. recently denied that the game would be coming to PS4 or Xbox One. The listing here is likely referencing the exclusive skins announced earlier this year for PS3.
It's a strong third-party exclusive lineup, one that Sony will be taking to battle against Microsoft's own Xbox One exclusives, like Insominiac's Sunset Overdrive, Capcom's Dead Rising 3, EA's exclusive FIFA 14 content, and of course, Activision's timed exclusive Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC.
