What about PlayStation games on PC? A whole slate of them is on the way starting with Days Gone this spring. And as for Sony’s publishing timetable for the year? Well, Covid has been up to no good again and booted Gran Turismo 7 back to 2022. Don’t worry, plans for the Uncharted movie and Last Of Us TV series are very much on track.
Fair enough. So releasing PlayStation games on PC was something that Sony PlayStation held back on for a long time. Now it sounds like you’re very much on that bandwagon. What changed?

I think a few things changed. We find ourselves now in early 2021 with our development studios and the games that they make in better shape than they’ve ever been before. Particularly from the latter half of the PS4 cycle our studios made some wonderful, great games. There’s an opportunity to expose those great games to a wider audience and recognise the economics of game development, which are not always straightforward. The cost of making games goes up with each cycle, as the calibre of the IP has improved. Also, our ease of making it available to non-console owners has grown. So it’s a fairly straightforward decision for us to make.

This is following on from your publishing Horizon Zero Dawn on PC in August last year. How did that go?

We assessed the exercise in two ways. Firstly, in terms of the straightforward success of the activity of publishing the game on PC, people liked it and they bought it. We also looked at it through the lens of what the PlayStation community thought about it. There was no massive adverse reaction to it. So we will continue to take mission steps in this direction.

I have to assume GT isn't the only big named game which misses 2021

God of War and Horizon probably getting delayed too.

I think all games included with PS5 PSN subscription will come to PC.

PC is the one stop destination for all the great games including Cyberpunk 🤪

Sure, maybe after a dozen or so patches when its finally in a fully playable state and has proper next-gen enhancements.

So what's next on the "whole slate" of Playstation games coming to PC? My guess is either Dreams or Until Dawn. Both are easy PC ports.

SSD recommended? Does this mean Necrokiller will assume this is next-gen? 😄

Makes sense. The game was stutter CiTy on PS4 when driving a bike.
