For decades, Sony has had a tight grip on its exclusive titles, only letting PlayStation users walk in their walled gardens. However, during these last two years, things have changed. The publishing giant has started releasing some of its games on PC.

First-Party Games on PC 

Till now, PC players have received three AAA first-party games. The first one was Horizon Zero Dawn, followed by Days Gone, and the most recent one, God of War (2018). Uncharted: The Legacy of Thieves Collection, which contains remasters of Uncharted 4 and The Lost Legacy, will also be released on PC later this year.

By looking carefully at Sony's strategy, it’s clear that their future titles will eventually get a PC release. It’s not a matter of if, but when.

Horizon Forbidden West 

The Nvidia GeForce leak mentioned Horizon Forbidden West for PC. The release date was given as September 30, 2022. Keep in mind that before the delay, Forbidden West was initially supposed to release on PlayStation last year, meaning that the alleged PC date could be old. This hints at a one year exclusivity period.

God of War Ragnarök 

God of War Ragnarök, on the other hand, wasn’t mentioned in the Nvidia leak. However, when asked about a PC port of Ragnarök, game producer Cory Barlog claimed that he has “no idea,” not a "no." He also claimed that in the end, it's up to the company, and we know that Sony now wants to support PC as well. They even created PlayStation PC LLC, a PC-specific publishing label. This gives me hope that Ragnarök will eventually get a PC launch.

Keep in mind that all of these are rumors, so take them with a grain of salt. However, if I was a betting man, I would bet on future PC releases.

It seems like Sony has finally decided to embrace PC, however, they are still only half-foot in. The company is not yet releasing new exclusives to PC on the same date as the PlayStation release, unlike Microsoft.

So do you think these two games will get a PC release in the future? Are you planning to play these games on PlayStation, or will you wait for their PC versions? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
