Sony recently held its annual 2020 corporate report in which there were talks about the future of PlayStation. However, while PlayStation 5 got a lot of attention there, some internet detectives found a sentence that might very well change the dynamics of the upcoming console war. Apparently, Sony plans to release more of its first-party games on PC.
While Xbox has been doing this for a while, Sony still lagged behind when it came to its exclusive games coming to the PC platform. The first of the bunch was Death Stranding that was later followed up by Horizon Zero Dawn. Both of these games raked a hefty amount of players on PC. Apparently, Sony wants to do more of this and decided to try to grow their fanbase in this way.
The report only features one sentence which might very well define the future of PlayStation exclusives. It reads:
“We will explore expanding our first-party titles to the PC platform, in order to promote further growth in our profitability.”
While we don’t think that new PlayStation games such as Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart or the same Horizon Forbidden West will launch on PC anytime soon, Sony might explore the possibility to bring other great titles to test the waters. Who wouldn’t want to play through The Last of Us or God of War on PC? It wouldn’t be a tough sell.
However, we’re pretty sure that PlayStation will still feature at least timed-exclusives since their first-party exclusive games are one of the main appeals to pick PlayStation over Xbox. But the future of PC gaming seems brighter, don’t you think?
