Sony Group announced on Tuesday that it expects to sell 18 million PlayStation 5 systems this fiscal year, thanks to strong game sales that helped the company more than quadruple its fourth-quarter operating profit.

However, the Japanese corporation cautioned that if further Chinese lockdowns to prevent the spread of COVID-19 make component procurement problematic, it may be obliged to adjust that manufacturing target.

At a press conference, Sony’s chief financial officer, Hiroki Totoki, said, “What I can say today is that we can acquire enough components for 18 million units.”
