More of PlayStation’s back catalogue will be coming to PC. Next up after Horizon: Zero Dawn is Bend Studio’s Days Gone.
This was an info drop in an interview with PlayStation head Jim Ryan by GQ, which also revealed that Gran Turismo 7 is coming next year.
Ryan is committed to having PlayStation releasing more games on PC after looking at two things:
“Firstly, in terms of the straightforward success of the activity of publishing the game on PC, people liked it and they bought it,” Ryan said.
“We also looked at it through the lens of what the PlayStation community thought about it. There was no massive adverse reaction to it. So we will continue to take mission steps in this direction.”
With costs of making games going up, and how easier it is to publish games on PC, it’s now easier for Sony to bring their first-party titles outside of PlayStation.
The choice of Days Gone is be a bit unexpected, however. The flawed but with heart open-world not-zombie apocalypse romp may benefit from a framerate boost. But what most fans want to see is Bloodborne on PC with no framerate cap.
But seeing Horizon’s rough launch on PC, maybe it’s for the best that other games get released first. No date was revealed for Days Gone release on PC as of yet.
UPDATE 24/02/21: Bend Studio’s tweet says that Days Gone for PC is slated for a Spring (Q2) release.
