A leaker claims that Sony is rumored to be releasing its next PC port sometime in the next couple of months. Leaker “The Snitch” has posted, that despite there being no mention at this week’s PlayStation Showcase, there is a gaming coming for PC in July and when asked, confirmed that it will be a AAA game.
While there were a number of big announcements, some of which that had been expected, there was not much said regarding what was next on Sony’s plate in terms of its next PC port. The Last of Us Part I is still relatively new having only just been released in March and although it got off to a rocky start it has seen its share of improvements. By the time July rolls around it will have only been barely four months since its release. However, a recent slide from a Sony business segment meeting revealed that the company is planning on ramping up its first-party releases to PC by 2025. Tom Henderson (Insider Gaming) also took note of the lack of updates regarding its next phase.
From Insider Gaming:
“Updates and reveals on PlayStation’s new hardware, in addition to focusing solely on 1st party titles would be the showcase that PlayStation needs to set up the next phase. It’s understood that a lot of the games we’re waiting on seeing are pretty much ready, so I’m not sure why Sony decided to wait this time around.”
If this rumor pans out to be true it is unknown which game will be next to come to PC. There are additional rumors that Nixxes (Spider-Man Remastered) has been tasked with prepping Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart for PC. Those rumors were sparked following a programmer job posting from Nixxes which focused on experience in bringing games to PC. There has also been speculation it could be Ghost of Tsushima. As Sony is rumored to be launching a AAA title these two would seem to be the prime candidates as it is unlikely to already be bringing the latest God of War or Horizon titles over so soon.
