Ready for another adventure on PC that was previously locked to PS5 consoles?
As the list of PlayStation Games on Windows PC grows over time, more and more games that were once locked to PS4 or PS5 are being made available for even more players. As shared via PlayStation Blog, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is headed to PC on July 26, 2023. Developed by Insomniac Games, this game first released on PS5 back in July 2021, with praise directed towards the visual quality and series-staple zany weapons.
The port is being developed by Insomniac Games in partnership with Nixxes Software, a team at PlayStation Studios that specializes in PC ports, having previously helped bring Marvel's Spider-Man and Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales to home computers.
After the launches of Housemarque's Returnal and Naughty Dog's The Last of Us Part 1 earlier in the year, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is currently the only known upcoming PC port of a PlayStation title.
Outside the realm of ports however, multiple upcoming PlayStation Studios games are launching day one on PC as well as PS5, including Helldivers 2, Fairgame$, and Concord.
Windows Central's take
The two-year mark seems about right for Ratchet and Clank to make its way over, so I'm glad PC players will soon get to experience it. With Nixxes Software helming the port, I'm also extremely confident we won't see a poor launch state like with The Last of Us Part 1 or many other PC games in recent months.
If you don't already have a way to play all the latest and greatest PC games, look no further than the powerful Razer Blade 15, which can handle anything you throw at it. Grab a mouse as well, or pair up your favorite controller.

This is awesome to see! This is one of the PS5 titles I was wanting to try out. Exciting to finally get an opportunity to check it out on PC. I played the port of Spider Man Remastered on PC, it was a great experience, and even dualsense adaptive trigger support. Hoping Spider Man 2 shows up on PC quicker this time around.Reply
Miles Morales came after about two years, so that's about what I'm expecting for Marvel's Spider-Man 2. Not "super quick" but definitely not the gap that some other games have had.Ty0660 said:This is awesome to see! This is one of the PS5 titles I was wanting to try out.

And yeah, it was a great port! Any port Nixxes works on I trust will be good, same with Ratchet and Clank.
