Back in March 2020, Sony announced its plans to bring Horizon Zero Dawn to the PC. Since then, a lot of people assumed that more Playstation games would be coming to the PC. And today, we have an official confirmation from Sony itself. Yes, Horizon Zero Dawn wasn’t a special case. Instead, Sony does plan to bring even more first-party games to the PC.
As Sony specifically said in its latest financial report, it will explore expanding its first-party titles to the PC platform.
“SIE aims to achieve robust revenue growth by accelerating the virtuous cycle that has been established for the PlayStation Platform. This entails increasing active users and play time, enhancing network services and reinforcing content IP so that consumers select PlayStation as their platform of choice. Targeted outcomes include growth in active users, stronger
retention and a shorter cash conversion cycle, from which expanded cash flow can be expected. We will explore expanding our first-party titles to the PC platform, in order to promote further growth in our profitability.”
Sony has not stated which other first-party Playstation games will release on the PC. In November 2019, Cory Barlog claimed that he’d love to see God of War on the PC. Then, in January 2020, Eurogamer’s Tom Phillips hinted at Dreams coming to our platform. However, Dreams’ Creative Director claimed that while it would be great to see Dreams on PC, it was not in development at that time.
It’s also interesting noting that in January 2020, Naughty Dog was hiring a programmer that had experience with DX12, Vulkan & NVIDIA GPUs for The Last of Us 2.
Now I’m not saying that The Last of Us 2, God of War or Dreams are 100% coming to PC. Still, these could be some candidates.
Stay tuned for more!
