Sony’s own studios are working hard to bring PlayStation games to PC, according to the creator of “God of War.”
“God Of War” is one of the most popular former PlayStation exclusives to arrive on PC this year.
However, Sony’s own first-party studios are reportedly pushing for it, so it’s unlikely to be the last.
Sony’s own studios are pushing to get PlayStation games to PC, according to Santa Monica Studio creative director Cory Barlog, who also worked on the “God Of War” franchise, as reported by Eurogamer.
Multiple studios are reportedly saying that porting PS games to PCs “is a really good idea,” according to Barlog, who also claims that this desire eventually reached a tipping point, with Sony finally relenting.
This has already been seen in a number of former PlayStation exclusives that have been released on Steam in recent years.
The critically acclaimed Norse retelling of Kratos’ story was the first, followed by “Horizon Zero Dawn” and now “Days Gone.”
Barlog made his comments in an interview with Game Informer, where he was asked why people should play “God Of War” now that it has been released on PC.
He said it’s “really exciting” to have a new audience of people who haven’t played the game before, but can now do so on their powerful gaming rigs.
True enough, the newest PlayStation exclusive to hit Windows is running and looking great as ever, according to Barlog (who reportedly played it on an ultra-wide monitor).
This doesn’t rule out the possibility of a PC release for “God Of War Ragnarok,” the highly anticipated sequel to the 2018 classic, which is due out this year.
According to PushSquare, Barlog has “no idea” if “Ragnarok” will also be released on PC. He claims that his team is taking things one game at a time as they assess the game’s performance.
However, he also stated that Sony will make the final decision.

Sony used to be adamant about keeping its exclusive games that way.
If you want to play “Uncharted,” “Ratchet and Clank,” or “The Last Of Us,” you’ll need to get a PlayStation console. But that’s no longer the case.
