PlayStation Spartacus could learn a lot from Disney Plus

PlayStation Spartacus may not have been officially announced yet, but if the rumors are true, there’s a big problem – access to Day One releases. While PlayStation gamers will no doubt take PlayStation’s answer to Xbox Game Pass for PS4 and PS5, I wonder if Sony will have learned the right lessons from the rival service. With Microsoft’s subscription service now almost five years old, whatever PlayStation Is launch has a lot of catching up to do. But it may be Disney Plus that has the answer to some of its potential downfalls.

Rumors so far suggest Project Spartacus – also known as PlayStation Neo in some alleged leaks – won’t see Sony is bringing its biggest titles to the service from day one. It’s a complete contrast to Xbox Game Pass, where we’ve already seen flagship titles like Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 available on release day for service subscribers. This would mean that upcoming PS5 games such as God of War: Ragnarok would not be offered as part of a Project Spartacus subscription, but would still be available to purchase through traditional methods.
