After years of releasing nearly all of its video games as PlayStation exclusives, Sony finally modified its tune and opted to port Horizon Zero Dawn to PC this yr. Nevertheless, it seems like this would possibly not be a one-off launch, as the corporate is open to bringing extra video games to PC.
In a corporate report masking many sides of Sony as an entire, the corporate mentioned it’s wanting into bringing extra first-party video games to the platform.
“We’ll discover increasing our first-party titles to the PC platform as a way to promote additional progress in our profitability,” the report mentioned.
In layman’s phrases, releasing its video games on PC could make Sony more cash. We have seen different PS4 titles reminiscent of Detroit: Become Human and Death Stranding finally launch on PC, however these video games weren’t developed by PlayStation’s first-party studios.
It is unlikely Sony would select and brand-new video games for PC ports, significantly as it really works to promote PS5 techniques within the upcoming era. As a substitute, it is extra probably that any video games launched would have already had their costs deeply discounted on the PlayStation model.
Horizon Zero Daybreak, as an illustration, was greater than three years previous by the point it launched on PC, so Horizon Forbidden West ought to stay a PS5 unique for fairly some time after it launches. Sadly, the Zero Daybreak port launched in rather rough shape, with efficiency hiccups that might ship the framerate plunging, and sure graphical settings not functioning in any respect.
