PlayStation Will Shut Down the PS4 Next Year, Making it Unplayable

Next year, Sony will discontinue a PS4-only game, rendering it unplayable. The delay until April 14, 2023, gives PlaySta Vtion gamers more time to play the game and unlock all of its trophies, which is the good news hidden within this bad news. It won’t matter if you downloaded the game in time after that because you must be connected to the internet to play it.

The game in question is Guns Up, a free-to-play action strategy game from Valkyrie Entertainment. The Playstation creators own the copyrights as Sony publishes it, and it appears they will never do anything with it again. The game received average reviews after its debut, scoring a 54 on Metacritic. The game received negative reviews and received little to no traction with players. When Guns Up was released on December 5, 2015, it quickly struggled to draw in and keep players despite being free-to-play. Of course, the poor quality of the game was the main factor. However, Sony’s essentially nonexistent game marketing undoubtedly didn’t help.

The game was a PS4-only title for the first three years of its existence before being released on PC in 2018. Then, in 2022, it made its way to mobile devices in the last-ditch effort to save the game.
