Sony Assures Fans Exclusives Won’t Launch On PC

Her­men Hulst, the PlaySta­tion Stu­dios head, cleared up any mis­giv­ings about Sony’s approach to releas­ing games on PC. In an inter­view with PlaySta­tion Blog, Hulst stat­ed that there is no hard set strat­e­gy, since it’s still in infan­cy. How­ev­er, Hulst did note that Hori­zon Zero Dawn’s PC edi­tion was “very suc­cess­ful,” demon­strat­ing that PC play­ers are interested.

He did stress that Sony’s efforts on PC will nev­er come at the expense of “build­ing an excit­ing line­up of great con­sole games.” He also hint­ed that you will not get day-and-date releas­es for PlaySta­tion con­sole games on PC like Microsoft does with its exclusives.

I want to empha­size that PlaySta­tion will remain the best place to play our PlaySta­tion Stu­dios titles at launch,” he said. “But we do val­ue PC gamers, and we’ll con­tin­ue to look at the right times to launch each game. Bend Stu­dio just released the PC ver­sion of Days Gone on May 18. So that’s about two years after the PS4 release.”

We want to reach new gamers who haven’t yet expe­ri­enced the great sto­ries, char­ac­ters, and worlds that we’ve built,” Hulst added. “Releas­ing games on PC will not come ever at the expense of build­ing an excit­ing line­up of great con­sole games.”

A recent Sony investor pre­sen­ta­tion unveiled that Hori­zon Zero Dawn’s PC edi­tion had a return on invest­ment of 250%. That same brief­ing also sug­gest­ed that Unchart­ed 4 might be the next PlaySta­tion game head­ing to PC. Of course, this has­n’t been offi­cial­ly con­firmed yet.

Sony has been dish­ing out a lot of PlaySta­tion news. God of War: Rag­narok was announced as being delayed to 2022, while Hori­zon For­bid­den West may not make its release win­dow. The com­pa­ny also announced that Days Gone stu­dio Sony Bend is mak­ing a new IP.

I am a Platinum lover and an ex- Cod-aholic. I've been playing games since I was 5 years old and I refuse to quit, despite my mother's attempts to get me to. God of War and its successors are my all time favorite games.
