While Kojima Productions has not announced anything about a PC version for Death Stranding, Sony appears open to bringing some of its games on our platform. Earlier today, the publisher revealed that it will release ReadySet Heroes on the Epic Games Store.
ReadySet Heroes is a fast-paced multiplayer dungeon crawler that will be exclusive to Playstation 4 on consoles. The main point here is that the game is published by Sony Interactive itself. As such, PC versions of some PS4 exclusive games may still be on the horizon.
This is really interesting, especially after Shawn Layden’s latest statement (regarding PS4 exclusives). Layden claimed that some games, particularly multiplayer titles designed to be played on PCs, may see broader distribution.
“We must support the PlayStation platform – that is nonnegotiable. That said, you will see in the future some titles coming out of my collection of studios which may need to lean into a wider installed base.”
My guess is that ReadySet Heroes is one of these games. So yeah, it’s not Death Stranding or Bloodborne but it looks like Sony may allow some of its titles to come out on the PC.
It’s also really interesting here that ReadySet Heroes releases on the Epic Games Store. Let’s not forget that Quantic Dream’s games also came out on Epic’s store. If this trend continues, we can safely assume that Death Stranding – and all other Sony games – will be exclusive to this store.
