PlayStation games to be available on PC “at least a year” after console launch

Ben Bayliss1 minute read

PlayStation Studio’s head Hermen Hulst has indicated that PlayStation titles will have to wait “at least a year” before they release on PC. This information comes from Julien Chleze (via, VGC) where the future of Sony’s dual platform release strategy was discussed.

According to Hulst, players may have to wait for ”at least a year” between releases on the PlayStation and PC. However, the exception would be any live service games as they are ”a little bit different” in that the studio wants a strong community engagement at launch.

In recent years, PlayStation titles that were previously exclusive to the console have been steadily making their way to PC. This has also been a welcome move for disabled players who are finally able to experience these titles.

While games such as Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and the upcoming God of War Ragnarok boast accessibility features, some players may be held back by the hardware limitations. As such, when a PlayStation title heads to PC this allows third-party peripherals and custom remapping.

It is unfortunate that players will have to wait to experience the next PlayStation blockbuster on PC. Though, it is nice to see that there is a focus there to continue bringing these titles to the platform. Despite the wait, the PC ports such as God of War (2018) and Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered allow some additional accessibility.
