Normally, Sony doesn’t let their exclusives release on other platforms. However, they have loosened their grip since last year. A few months ago, Sony released Guerrilla Games' critically acclaimed Horizon Zero Dawn on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store. It seems like Sony wants to support PC gamers even more as they recently announced that HZD will be launching on CD Projekt Red’s DRM-free platform, GOG.

You can purchase Horizon Zero Dawn from GOG starting tomorrow. Just like every other GOG game, HZD will also be void of any kind of DRM protection. You won’t even need an online activation for it. The GOG version will support all the GOG Galaxy 2.0 features. This is great news for PC gamers that don’t want any pesky DRM on their PC.

This decision by Sony is one of many that they have taken to attract PC players to their games. There is no denying that PlayStation has some of the best exclusives on the market, and each game is seemingly better than the last. They also allowed Hideo Kojima’s latest release, Death Stranding, to come to PC. However, unlike Horizon, DS is not a first-party game.

Back in August, Sony revealed that they plan to bring more of their first-party games to PC. However, they didn’t reveal which ones. The decision makes sense as its biggest competitor, Microsoft, has openly supported PC. All of Microsoft's first-party games launch on Xbox and PC. Microsoft has claimed that they are emphasizing selling games rather than consoles.

There are tons of PlayStation games that fans want on PC. Several rumors have suggested that a PC version Bloodborne might be in development. A The Last of Us Part 2 PC version was also hinted at when Naughty Dog wanted to hire developers that know about Vulkan API and Nvidia Cuda. None of these technologies are used on the PlayStation 5.

During the PS5 presentation, it was written that Demon’s Soul Remake will also launch on PC, however, Sony marked it off as ‘human error’. We aren’t exactly sure whether it was a human error or if Sony is just messing with us.

I would definitely buy God of War (2018) and both of the Marvel’s Spider-Man games on PC on Day One. What about you? What PlayStation exclusives would you like to see make the jump to PC? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
