Sony has promised not to abandon story games.

Although live games like 'Fortnite' and Apex Legends' have become incredibly popular, the company has vowed to remain committed to the likes of 'God of War' and 'Days Gone'.

Sony Interactive Entertainment president Jim Ryan told CNET: "We've never had greater success with our own narrative-driven, story-based games than we're having right now.

"We feel good about that, and it's certainly not a genre of gaming we'll ever walk away from."

However, he did praise service games, noting that they are contributing to the growth of the "overall gaming ecosystem".

Ryan also noted the skills it takes to create such titles, and said it "has to be build incrementally" rather than being an instant success.

He explained: "f you're going to do this you have to do it really well.

"It's a form of entertainment that has to be built incrementally, you can't sort of plunge in and build one of these live service games and get it right from day one. It's got to be evolved and iterated and it's not easy. It's really not easy."

The company's next big story game will be Naughty Dog's 'The Last of Us: Part II', which is thought to be near the end of its development period.

However, given that Sony won't be attending the E3 event this week, it could be a while before players are given a release date or further details.
