Yesterday, a Sony representative confirmed that the original list of 143 PlayStation 4 developers was issued in error. An updated document saw the number of European developers shrink from 53 to 30. As it turns out, this latest list is also incorrect.
FIFA and Mass Effect publisher Electronic Arts was named on the list as a partner for Japan and North America, but not Europe. Guildford-based Criterion Games (a wholly owned EA studio) was on the list, but if its inclusion was meant to represent EA as a whole, then why was EA-owned Swedish Battlefield developer DICE left off?
This was a mistake and a new list from Sony will be released today, EA said.
"The confusion in the release lists was an error; Sony will be correcting it today," Electronic Arts senior director of corporate communications John Reseburg told GameSpot today. "Watch their feeds for an update."
Sony has yet to issue the new list of PS4 developers and a company representative was not immediately available to comment. When the company does provide a new list of developers, this story will be updated with relevant information.
