PlayStation 4 and Free To Play games

A recent article/interview in Polygon with various execs from SONY revealed the fact that free to play games have the option whether they're published inside PS+ or not.
Meaning that free2play on-line multiplayer games do not require an active PS+ subscription.

Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios:
As far as free-to-play games are concerned, it's a publisher's decision whether they put it inside or outside of the PlayStation Plus requirements

Further, it's confirmed that titles like:

  • DC Universe OnLine
  • PlanetSide 2
  • WarFrame
  • BlackLight: Retribution

will not require PS+ for on-line multiplayer.

Another title that was announced for PS4 did not make a stance on the issue, Gaijin's WarThunder.
I made a personal inquiry into this, if I get a reply I will let you know.
