It's looking like another much-loved PlayStation 4 exclusive won't be exclusive for much longer. PlayStation recently updated the boxart for Sucker Punch's Ghost Of Tsushima, removing the "only on PlayStation" banner and fueling speculation the open-world samurai adventure is PC-bound.
As spotted by VGC, the shiny new boxart removes the exclusivity banner and adds a callout to the post-launch Legends multiplayer expansion. You can see it for yourself on Amazon or PlayStation Direct. The older version can still be seen here, just so you can see it did used to bear the "only on PlayStation" signage.
It wouldn't be the first time this change to PlayStation boxart has indicated a shift to PC. Sony did the exact same thing with PS4-exclusives Days Gone and Horizon Zero Dawn ahead of their respective PC port announcements, so it wouldn't be hugely surprising to see Ghost Of Tsushima end up on the platform next.
It is worth pointing out, however, that Sony doesn't use the "Only on PlayStation" label for PS4 games that are also available on PlayStation 5. Both Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Sackboy: A Big Adventure are missing the callout, so there's a good chance a PS5 version of Ghost Of Tsushima is in development. Then again, it could be that the game is coming to PC and PS5. Wouldn't that be swell?
PlayStation has been pretty clear about the fact that it wants to bring more exclusives to PC, confirming earlier this year that Days Gone and Horizon Zero Dawn were just the start.
"I think a few things changed," PlayStation boss Jim Ryan said of the company's decision to bring more ports to PC in an interview with GQ. "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."
Ghost Of Tsushima with mods is going to be absolutely wild, my guys.
