In what can only be described as a wonderful turn of events, Sony has confirmed that it'll be bringing even more PlayStation exclusives to PC in the coming months. Fans around the world were shocked last year when the excellent PS4-exclusive open-world adventure Horizon Zero Dawn was ported to PC, but it turns out this was just the beginning of a much larger plan.
In a new interview with GQ, PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan just confirmed the divisive open-world survival horror Days Gone is headed to PC this Spring. Developed by SIE Bend Studio and released in 2019, Days Gone blends riding around on a motorcycle with intense brooding and fighting massive hordes of zombies. It got mixed reviews at the time, but it's still well worth checking out.
"I think a few things changed," Ryan said of PlayStation's decision to bring more ports to PC. "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."
Ryan added that there was no "massive adverse reaction" from the PlayStation community in regards to Horizon on PC, which encouraged the company to continue to take steps in that direction. As far as I'm concerned, this is great news for PlayStation and PC gamers as it just gives us more to talk about. Let's hope the likes of God Of War and Bloodborne make their way to PC next, because I am dying to see what my PC exclusive friends make of Bloodborne. Also mods. Lots and lots of mods.
