PC ports will also appear with some lag in the future



PC ports will also appear with some lag in the future

Sony has opted to port many of its exclusive PlayStation games to PC, such as “Horizon Zero Dawn”, “Spider-Man: Remastered” or “Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection”. However, the focus will continue to be on “after”, as PlayStation Studios boss Hermen Hulst pointed out to YouTuber Julien Chièze.

The time gap between releasing a game for PlayStation consoles and PC will remain “at least one year”. So if you were hoping that Sony might take heart and release its next blockbusters simultaneously for consoles and PC, you should bury those hopes.

Sony had already claimed in the past that the PC ports were more of an “advertisement” for its consoles. Hopefully some PC gamers will get a taste and explore the value a PlayStation 5 could offer them. The “safe distance” between the PlayStation and PC versions then ensures that the console always stays on point when new titles are launched.

However, there should be one exception to the strategy: live service games. They are continuously generating revenue through microtransactions and Co. According to Hulst, these could hit the market for PlayStation and PC sooner or even at the same time. In general, Sony expects that by 2025 around half of its annual games will also be released for PC and/or mobile devices.

The very good “Sackboy: A Big Adventure” was recently announced on PC. “Returnal” should also be confirmed for PC soon. But before we see the triple-A blockbuster “God of War Ragnarök” on PC, which will be released in November 2022, it will be at least the end of 2023. This game will definitely be one of my best moments of the year.
