The PC ports of Horizon Zero Dawn, God of War, and Days Gone are definitely just the beginning of Sony Interactive Entertainment’s experiment in appeasing gamers who refuse to get a PlayStation console. An investor briefing shared by the Japanese electronics giant today has offered insight on how the company plans to grow its PC and mobile business, and it suggests that PC gamers will have the privilege of playing many more ports of PlayStation’s biggest first-party blockbusters in the years ahead. One chart even indicates that around a third of the games in PlayStation’s portfolio are destined for PC. Horizon Forbidden West, Marvel’s Spider-Man, and God of War: Ragnarok are just a few of the titles that will most likely end up losing their PlayStation exclusivity.

Horizon’s port helped propel the game’s total sales across an impressive benchmark: To date, it’s sold more than 20 million copies. And it’s not just Horizon that brings in a ton of money. In the investor brief, Sony estimates that its PC portfolio is on track to earn $300 million in revenue during the company’s 2022 fiscal year—more than triple the revenue from the same segment for its 2021 fiscal year, and close to 10 times the segment revenue from its 2020 fiscal year. Clearly, PC players like entertaining games with luxurious production values. What a surprise!
