Was anybody truly anticipating Sony to begin releasing their games concurrently throughout PC and console? Worried PlayStation 5 owners, perhaps – but even they need to worry no longer. In an interview with Game Informer, head of PlayStation Studios Hermen Hulst devoted to PC releases coming only after a duration of exclusivity.

Im OK with this. Theres plenty in Sonys back catalogue to keep me pleased if it continues to trickle throughout to our favoured machines, whether thats Spider-Man or Bloodborne or Dreams or Tokyo Jungle.

” Typically, there have been about two years in between the release on our platform and the PC platform. However you can depend on us to continue to create platform-defining exclusive material for PlayStation– thats part of the reason that we exist. Its really important for us to squeeze the maximum out of the platform, to construct showcases for the platform, and really let the audience see what these terrific features are adding to the total experience.”

Part of the factor this is a topic of discussion is, obviously, that Microsoft have committed to bringing all of their first-party games to PC on launch day. Thats because Microsoft make Xboxes, but would choose to be in the subscription business by getting individuals to sign up to Game Pass. Later this month, the Microsoft published Psychonauts 2 will be available via Game Pass on launch day.

Sony have consistently expressed a commitment to porting their video games to PC, with Horizon: Zero Dawn and Days Gone making the leap so far. Both pertained to PC a number of years after their original console release, nevertheless, with Uncharted 4 next in line to make the very same journey. Sony appeared to boost their plans in July by purchasing porting professional Nixxes Software, however theres never ever been any tip that releases would arrive day-and-date.

On the subject of simultaneous releases, Hulst said that he “truthfully cant see us doing that with one of the platform-defining experiences that were making at PlayStation Studios.”
