Sony recently released Corporate Report for 2020, and it contained an interesting piece of information. On the report’s 43rd page, the last paragraph reads:
“SIE aims to achieve robust revenue growth by accelerating the virtuous cycle that has been established for the PlayStation Platform. This entails increasing active users and play time, enhancing network services and reinforcing content IP so that consumers select PlayStation as their platform of choice. Targeted outcomes include growth in active users, stronger retention and a shorter cash conversion cycle, from which expanded cash flow can be expected. We will explore expanding our 1st party titles to the PC platform, in order to promote further growth in our profitability.“
While not a 100% confirmation, Sony has at least expressed that it is interested in releasing more first-party PlayStation titles on PC.
This might not come as a surprise for most gamers, especially as Sony has released various first-party titles on PC already, including the likes of Detroit: Become Human, Death Stranding, and Horizon Zero Dawn. Sony’s interest in releasing more PlayStation exclusives implies that the recent PC releases of PS4 titles were a success (at least financially).
While we don’t expect first-party PS5 titles to simultaneously release on PC, we won’t be surprised to see PS4 exclusives such as Spider-Man or God of War get released on PC. After all, getting more gamers to play these exclusives might just entice them to get a PS5 to play future games in the the series.
