Sony Is Working To Strengthen Its PC Strategy

Following the launch of Sony’s PC division for PlayStation games in 2021, it was to be expected that expansion would continue.


Horizon Zero Dawn, Days Gone, Death Stranding, and God of War are the four games that have made the move from PlayStation 4 to PC, and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection will follow a similar trajectory with PlayStation 5 updates of PlayStation 4 games later this year (but we don’t know when yet). That’s not a lot, and it’s a fact that in many cases, it’s taken many months, or even years, for a game to make the PlayStation-to-PC route (and previously, Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan has stated that ports will come when it makes business sense, i.e. waiting until PlayStation sales are weak).

PlayStation Global is now looking for a senior director of PC planning and strategy, which means that the ports so far have been a test period which has been a success. The successful candidate “will be responsible for the strategy and commercial activity within Global Channel sales and deliver a single, optimized PC Sales growth and commercial plan to hub and territory teams to implement.”

But let’s not forget that on both Steam and Epic Games Store, a percentage (12% in the latter case) is taken by the digital store owner. A logical step would be for Sony to launch a PlayStation Network of sorts on PC or some kind of PlayStation Launcher. It would be in contrast to what Bethesda is doing, since in two weeks, on May 11, the Bethesda Launcher will cease to exist (which is understandable since Microsoft uses Game Pass and Steam for their PC presence, in addition to their Store…).

So Sony doesn’t consider the first steps on PC a failure. In the case of Bloodborne or Marvel’s Spider-Man, a remake would be a good idea…
