Sony's John Kodera has taken to Twitter to say that Sony fans will not have to worry about their company steering towards 'games as a service' as that appears to be the last thing on the developers minds. Kodera has said that "PlayStation's vision is totally different" from 'games as a service' meaning that Sony is going to be sticking by a linear type storyline that includes a start and finish, instead a infinite amount of DLCs and updates.

An example of another company sticking by the single-player genre, that is also relative to Sony, is Naughty Dog. Last year at the PlayStation Experience, Naughty Dog's director Neil Druckmann announced that the company "will forever continue to make single-player, linear, narrative-based games" reinforcing the already great choice of upcoming single-player titles on the PlayStation platform.
