A future where PC truly gets it all.
Whatever your feelings about various gaming consoles, there’s no denying that Sony has amassed itself an impressive group of studios, and continues to churn out critically acclaimed titles like God of War, Ghost of Tsushima, and many more. Over time, players have lamented the lack of Playstation’s beautiful games on their platform of choice, PC, especially at a time where Microsoft has committed to bringing every 1st party Xbox game to PC.
In fact, absolutely incredibly games like Microsoft Flight Simulator and Gears Tactics came to PC first, and will come to Xbox in the future. Because of this, Microsoft has routinely dominated Steam’s best selling charts with their games, and Sony has taken notice. After games like Horizon Zero Dawn and Death Stranding impressed with their PC ports, players were hopeful for more.

It seems Sony may be keeping this in mind, and in their 2020 corporate report buried a comment that commits to at least exploring the possibilities. Besides hinting at a strong lineup of future exclusives, Sony’s report said “We will explore expanding our 1st party titles to the PC platform, in order to promote further growth in our profitability.”
With the Xbox Series X and Playstation 5 on the horizon, these gaming behemoths are looking for every way to capture the hearts and minds of players. Going where the players are is a great way to do that, so hopefully we see more of Sony’s first-party games come to PC as well as Playstation, as Microsoft has now smartly begun to do.
