The PS4 exclusive hit, Days Gone is coming to PC this spring.
Announced on Twitter by the developers’ Bend Studio earlier today, Days Gone will be first in what Jim Ryan, CEO at PlayStation promises to be a long line of PlayStation exclusive games coming to PC following on from Death Standing and Horizon Zero Dawn last year.
In a recent interview with GQ, Ryan explains the decision to bring PS4 exclusives to PC:
We find ourselves now in early 2021 with our development studios and the games that they make in better shape than they’ve ever been before. Particularly from the latter half of the PS4 cycle, our studios made some wonderful, great games. There’s an opportunity to expose those great games to a wider audience and recognise the economics of game development, which are not always straightforward. The cost of making games goes up with each cycle, as the calibre of the IP has improved. Also, our ease of making it available to non-console owners has grown.
We assessed the exercise in two ways. Firstly, in terms of the straightforward success of the activity of publishing the game on PC, people liked it and they bought it. We also looked at it through the lens of what the PlayStation community thought about it. There was no massive adverse reaction to it. So we will continue to take mission steps in this direction.
The mods for this are going to be excellent
No other titles have been announced as of yet, but it seems PC gamers can expect more PlayStation exclusives in the near future.
