What you need to know

  • In its investor relations presentation, it appears that Sony's next PC release is Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.
  • This follows the successful release of Days Gone on PC, which has been towards the top of the best sellers list since release.
  • Sony points out that PC and mobile are both "new growth vectors" for the company.

In a Sony Investors Day presentation today, the company revealed that it'll continue moving into PC gaming, with the next entry likely being Uncharted 4.

The presentation, which appeared online following the corporate strategy meeting on Wednesday in Tokyo, says that more PC releases are planned, and lists Days Gone and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. The latter, a hit Naughty Dog game from 2016, hadn't been previously announced.

So far, a number of Sony games have hit PC. Horizon Zero Dawn and Death Stranding both went up on Steam in 2020. While Horizon Zero Dawn launched with some performance issues, it went on to sell thousands of copies, according to Neilsen's SuperData (via VGC). While Death Stranding didn't sell nearly as well, it ran incredibly well on PC, and we called it the "definitive version of the game."

The latest entry into the PC market was Days Gone, which topped the Steam charts on launch day. At the time of this writing, which is over a week later, the game is still in the top-selling games on Steam. All three of these releases show that while a game might not have been received or sold well at initial release on console, they're reaching a new audience on PC and allowing Sony to gain access to a new audience. In fact, Sony stressed that in its presentation, saying it helps the company "create new fans for our IP."

Overall, Sony is looking beyond its console ecosystem in the future, including mobile. It specifically wants to see "a transformation from PlayStation's current console-centric ecosystem to a future where large elements of our community extend beyond the console," according to the presentation.

Considering that Sony says in the presentation that even more PC releases are planned, we're hoping this means even more ports like God of War or even The Last of Us.

  • Uncharted who? I don't care about most of the Sont games.
  • Never heard of Sont sorry
  • Lol. Classic fail.
  • All Sony exclusives will eventually come over to PC, unless Sony is inconceivably focused on their console sales over game sales. It's a hard rationalization to make when they don't make profit on consoles, but they do on the games.
  • I'm surprised it took Sony this long to bring games over to the PC as they and the affliated studios were seriously missing out on some serious profits. Glad they finally made that rational decision as it's a win-win scenario for everyone. Gamers get more amazing games to play and studios make a tonne of money which means more games to play. As well as ensuring the people who make these amazing works of art get paid a decent salary as without these magicians, we gamers would not have games to play at all lol...
  • Sony's also looking to invest $18 billion over the next 3yrs on strategic investments (including it's gaming & entertainment sector)
  • Sony should realise the UC 1 instead. Either it's their strategy or the latest UC is easy to port ?
  • Edit: release* Bring back edit functionality in mobile app
  • Only a handful of PS games I would love to play on PC. First being God of War. Second would probably be Spider-man games. Then maybe The Last of Us series.
  • Such a weird move to only bring 4.
  • Guess porting pre Ps4 Gen games isn't easy.
  • There's an Uncharted remastered collection for PS4, so the first 3 games are also PS4 games.
  • Not really, it doesn't require the previous games as the story works on its own, and it's the most visually spectacular of the four games, and just the most polished in general.
  • PC folks have had access to Uncharted 1-3 via PS Now for many years, for what that's worth.
  • The source you linked doesn't make any mention of Uncharted 4 though?
  • Uncharted games are pretty boring. Bring me God of War and ff7
  • Too bad Sony doesn't have a psStore for PC and no PSPA. No save sync and no buy once play everywhere. Also, must keep buying PS4/5/6/7 core and must keep asking devs to test games on new hardware, OS and API has its limit too...
  • Uncharted 4 was a excellent game. PC gamers are in for a real treat.
