The PC video game industry is growing considerably, and more players are waiting for PC releases than consoles. For one thing, Xbox has the facility to allow exclusive releases on PC in addition to its consoles; however, this is new ground for Sony, who has been testing this strategy and, seeing the results, it will also use this format for future releases of exclusives on PC, albeit with certain conditions.
In an interview that Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony, gave to the Japanese medium Famitsu (translated by Resetera), he explained that the releases of the Playstation exclusives on PC have had good results in terms of profits, so they will continue to carry these games. frequently. However, Ryan also argues that Sony “fully understands the importance of PS5 exclusive titles” and that Playstation Studios’ main mission is for “people to enjoy the gaming experience using the latest Playstation”, which is why, the new exclusives will arrive on PC, but they will have to wait between 2 and 3 years from their launch.
Recent releases like God of War: Ragnarök and Horizon: Forbidden West will have to wait a while for PC
In this way, Jim Ryan announced that relatively new releases, such as Horizon: Forbidden West or God of War: Ragnarök, as well as future releases such as Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, they will have to wait a couple of years to reach PC, although this is considered “a reasonable time.” This response shows that, on behalf of Sony, they have listened to the requests of PC players so that exclusive games that are already years old reach this platform, as is the case of Bloodborne, one of the most mentioned options by the community. gamer, but with little response from the company.
Will Bloodborne finally come to PC?
While the release of Playstation exclusives to PC has been a significant success for the company and has brought in good numbers in terms of profit, Ryan is aware that they need to be careful with their upcoming releases so as not to lose the trust of players, as This was the case with The Last of Us Part I, the launch of which resulted in failure due to the number of errors. However, this announcement by the CEO of Sony leaves open the possibilities of more old exclusives coming to PC and future PS5 releases as well, albeit with a little more waiting.
