Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is the weakest-performing PC port that PlayStation has released so far, according to numbers derived from SteamDB. The collection, which comprises remastered versions of Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy games, has only managed an all-time peak of 10,851 players at the time of this posting, a number that pales in comparison to titles such as Horizon Zero Dawn, Marvel’s Spider-Man, and God of War. Even Days Gone, which was previously in last place, had an all-time peak of 27,450, more than double that of Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, which reportedly suffers from various technical issues.

Naughty Dog has hinted that older Uncharted games won’t be heading to PC and will remain exclusive to PlayStation consoles:

The Uncharted franchise comprises standalone adventures that players new and old can jump into, and so while there’s still incredible stories and character development in those first three games, we felt players could easily dive into Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and pick up Nathan, Elena, and Sully’s stories

With the introduction of new characters like Sam Drake, Rafe Adler, and Nadine Ross, A Thief’s End offers so much to players regardless of their history getting into and out of trouble as Nathan Drake. And Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, which is also included in the collection, offers a new playable protagonist in Chloe Frazer. Fans who know the original trilogy will be delighted to see her return, but newcomers will have no trouble understanding her wonderful story by starting with the collection.

And so, these two games… felt like perfect candidates to introduce the franchise, and Naughty Dog, to modern PC players.”
