Sony Interactive Entertainment could be planning to bring more PlayStation games to the PC than anticipated. This is according to a new filing discovered by Steam users, which reveals that Sony has formed a new “PlayStation PC” label specifically for its PC gaming operation. The implication is that Sony is becoming increasingly aware of how lucrative the PC platform can be and is doubling down on its PlayStation port efforts following the success of projects such as Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone.

Playstation PC LLC Overview:

Playstation PC LLC filed as a Domestic in the State of California on Tuesday, April 13, 2021 and is approximately six months old, as recorded in documents filed with California Secretary of State.

PlayStation boss Jim Ryan elaborated on why Sony was embracing the PC platform in an interview with GQ back in February:

“I think a few things changed.”

“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.”

The next PlayStation exclusives that will be coming to PC are Naughty Dog’s Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection and Santa Monica Studios’ God of War. The former should be released in the first half of 2022, while God of War will land on January 14, 2022.
