In the future, Sony said it’s expect­ing to see “expo­nen­tial” growth on the PC front. More specif­i­cal­ly, Sony stat­ed it expects to make $300 mil­lion in net sale from PC releas­es for FY22. This began April 1st of this year and runs through March 31st, 2023. Sony is launch­ing Unchart­ed: The Lega­cy of Thieves Col­lec­tion on PC this game, but if Sony is tar­get­ing a $300 mil­lion goal, this like­ly won’t hap­pen from the release of one game. Obvi­ous­ly, this is sug­gest­ing that Sony has plans to release more titles on PC this year–they just haven’t divulged which ones yet.

A recent Steam data­base leak revealed that Sack­boy: A Big Adven­ture is poten­tial­ly com­ing to PC, while even more recent­ly, a PC port for Retur­nal made an appear­ance on SteamDB. This all occurred after Sony acquired Nixxes, a stu­dio that spe­cial­izes ins PC ports, obvi­ous­ly adding more fuel to spec­u­la­tion flames.

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.
