Speaking to Game Informer earlier this year, God of War director Cory Barlog claimed that developers fought for Sony’s biggest games to release on PC.
Sony’s first modern PC ports were Horizon Zero Dawn in August 2020 and Days Gone in May 2021.
Last year SIE’s president confirmed PlayStation would bring “a whole slate” of games to PC.
Speaking to GQ in 2021 SIE boss Jim Ryan said that the opportunity to bring PlayStation’s IPs to a wider audience, as well as an easier port process, meant that making more games for PC was now “a fairly straightforward decision” for the company.
