Sony games are coming to PC a year after PS4 and PS5

Sony has started to adopt the strategy of making its PS4 and PS5 games eventually come to PC. With this, users will be able to play Sony games that are released, without having to pay for an additional system in case they want to enjoy said titles because Sony simply does not want to.

Although this is good news, because it will allow more people to play them, they do not plan to do simultaneous releases in a general way. The games that are titles as a service are the ones that will be released on PS4, PS5 and PC at the same time, while the rest of the games that Sony produces will end up coming out on PC after at least a year.

Herman Hulst, head of PlayStation Studios; declared in an interview with youtuber Julien Chièze, this release plan for his games. The reason that games as a service are going to have this simultaneous launch is because they want to have a very strong initial community. Therefore, making the games come out on as many platforms as possible is very important to them.

To give an example, God of War: Ragnarok comes out this November, so at least until the end of 2023 we will not see it on PC. Although it could be a little longer and go to 2024. It is also not to say that each and every one of their games will come to PC, but that the games will take a year from their release to come to PC.

With all this, PS4 and Sp5 will stay as an option for games only and some multimedia content, cheaper than a gaming quality PC, and that will have Sony titles a year earlier than on PC. It is always good to leave users with options and not just leave them an option that is either to buy their console to play or not to play, when the market of PC users has grown due to remote work and virtual classrooms. Having a device that only serves for games is becoming a luxury, which is how consoles have always been, and now more than ever when PCs with gaming capabilities grow in demand so that entertainment and work or education can be centralized in a single system. Thus, in a few months we may see titles like Returnal or Demon souls on PC.
