Sony Reveals PS Plus Subscriptions Have Dropped Ahead of New Tiers

Sony has revealed that over 600,000 players have canceled their PlayStation Plus subscriptions in a recent financial earnings report.

This isn’t too surprising, given the fact that PlayStation saw a drop from 2021’s Q3 report. The PlayStation Plus subscription changes were revealed during Q4 of 2021.

PlayStation also saw a drop of five million monthly active users. Sony defines these as unique accounts which played games or used PlayStation Network services during the last month.

The better news is that Sony has confirmed almost 20 million PlayStation 5 units have been sold. And, they expect more supply in the financial year 2022.

How Many Active PlayStation Plus Subscribers in 2022?

As of the drop reported by Sony, PlayStation is said to have 47.4 million active PlayStation Plus subscribers in 2022.

Of course, this is after the drop in Q4 in 2021, which leads up to the end of March 2022. This number could fluctuate frequently.

They could also have an increase in subscriptions when the new PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium tiers release.
