According to a reliable Imran Khan, Sony will shock gamers with timed exclusivity deals for some huge and widely popular multiplatform games, which could be revealed in the next couple of months.

Over the last couple of months, we've had rumours suggesting that Sony will pay a lot of money for big timed exclusives from the third-party studio. Some of these exclusives have already been revealed at the PlayStation 5 event earlier this year. Games like Deathloop, Bugsnax and Ghostwire: Tokyo are just some of the titles that will be available on PlayStation 5 first before arriving to other platforms. 

And by the looks of it, this is just a start of Sony's plans for timed exclusives. According to reliable Imran Khan, players will be shocked when they find out all the games that Sony are locking to their platform.

Here's what Khan had to say on the matter in the latest Kinda Funny Games Daily episode:

There are things you will be shocked to find out that Sony is moneyhatting. They are locking up for timed exclusivity of like "wow, that is a game you are choosing?" Not because it's bad, because it's huge. So I am interested to see where this conversation is going to be in a couple of months because there are games that are widely accepted as multiplatform that Sony is locking up for a little while. So I would not be shocked if they did something insane like that.

You can also find the interesting part where Khan talks about these exclusives in the video below, at 22:20 mark.

Of course, since this is not official info, we suggest you take it with a grain of salt just like any other rumour, leak or unconfirmed info. That being said, it would not surprise us if Sony have deals in place for some big third-party timed exclusives. 

The exclusive content in Marvel's Avengers seems to be the start of this unpopular practice and it remains to be seen just how PC and Xbox players will react to these upcoming announcements.
