Sony has already started porting over some of its first party exclusives to PC. After all, Horizon Zero Dawn was recently released on PC and while not a first party title the PS4 console exclusive Death Stranding was also released on PC. According to a new report from Sony (courtesy of ResetEra), the publisher will not be letting up on bringing PlayStation titles to PC. The main motivation here is increased revenue which makes sense as the main driving factor, though the report does suggest Sony would like players to make PlayStation their first choice 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 1st party titles to the PC platform, in order to promote further growth in our profitability.
There are a number of recent first party titles that could make the jump to PC, if Sony would allow it. Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us and Uncharted games would be a huge announcement for PC, as would Marvel’s Spider-Man, and Ratchet & Clank. God of War would also be a big release on PC, along with Ghost of Tsushima. Perhaps even Days Gone could be made available on PC. There have been rumours of Bloodborne being released for PC but that is more of a third party exclusive considering it was developed by FromSoftware.
Of course, how Sony approaches this and how it decides what to bring to PC is unknown. Though, with Horizon Zero Dawn already on PC it would not be a surprise to see Horizon Forbidden West appear on PC too.
