The presentation also shows how much some of these F2P games make on PS4. According to the slides, five major free-to-play games made up 25% of total PS Store spending on the PS4: Fortnite, Genshin Impact, Warzone, Apex Legends, and Rocket League. We know that the PS4 made up 65% of total PS Store revenues, and that add-on + digital software earnings for FY21 total about $8 billion. So a quick bit of match shows that these five live games made $2.058 billion in PS Store spending.

Five of the most successful free-to-play live service games have brought Sony over $2 billion in PlayStation Store income. Sony’s recent financial report reveals a huge increase in live service earnings. Sony makes billions of dollars a year through add-on content and microtransactions as the game industry’s largest platform owner (nearly $7 billion in FY21, to be exact). F2P live games bring in billions of dollars for third-party firms like Epic, Activision, and EA each year; now Sony wants in on the fun, and is building a fleet of live games to hit the market.
