- Uncharted is a Sony PlayStation exclusive that has been long-rumored to be heading to PC in the future.
- During the 2021 PlayStation Showcase, Sony finally confirmed these rumors by announcing Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection.
- The new collection features remastered versions Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy for PC and PS5.
- Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection officially arrives on PS5 and PC sometime in early 2022.
During the PlayStation Showcase 2021, Sony has been peppering fans with reveal after announcement. One of the highlights of the event was certainly confirmation that Uncharted is indeed heading to PC after months of rumors and speculation. Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection has officially been announced as a remastered pairing of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, and it's heading to PS5 and PC in early 2022.
Naughty Dog and PlayStation is bringing the game to both Steam and the Epic Games Store with the help of Iron Galaxy, giving players some choice as to where to pick up the new Uncharted collection. It's not clear exactly how significant of a remaster the collection will be, but early looks in the trailer appear to look pretty great. There's no exact release date for Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection yet.
Iron Galaxy is a noted force in the industry when it comes to porting console games to PC platforms, and has assisted on ports like Skyrim, Destiny, and more in the past. Hopefully, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection will represent another quality port from PlayStation and provide PC players with the features and settings they expect, while delivering the experience that Uncharted previously provided only to PlayStation players.
If Naughty Dog and Iron Galaxy are able to bring a compelling port to PC with Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, we may have another one of the best PC games on our hands. This is the latest in a growing series of ports from PlayStation, including Horizon Forbidden Dawn Complete Edition and Days Gone.

So, the Nathan Drake Collection (game 1, 2, 3) is not coming to PC; we're directly getting game #4?
This is just 4 and The Lost Legacy, yes.
"Don't worry about the 75% of the series story that came before it, you'll be fine honest" - Sony
Well yeah, anyone who has played the series would know that you do not need to have played any of the previous games to enjoy the story of the fourth.
And anyone else would see the '4' and immediately assume it's a terrible point of entry for the series. But it's good to hear it isn't so dependent on knowledge of previous entries.
I wonder whether we'll get the first collection later, re-remastered by the same team who did it the first time.
I just couldn't get into Uncharted 4. There were just too many bullet sponge enemies and too much wall-climbing and grapple swinging. . Instead of calling it Uncharted 4: Thief's End, they should have called it Uncharted 4: The Spider-Man Edition.
I wonder whether they decided to start with 4 or just do the latest two because there would be more or too much work involved with redoing the older games. It's also possible that they wanted Bluepoint Games to handle the remaster of the first three, given that they did the first remaster for The Nathan Drake Collection.
I honestly don't really care, never cared about these games.
Good. The PlayStation Exclusives are the single reason why I game on a console not a PC.
If PC users can enjoy them too, all the better.
