Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan confirmed today that Days Gone and other PlayStation games are coming to PC later in 2021. Speaking with GQ, Ryan confirmed that Days Gone would arrive in later in Spring 2021, with more games to follow.
When asked about the strategy for releasing these games, Ryan explained “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. So it’s a fairly straightforward decision for us to make.”
Days Gone is not the first title from Sony Worldwide Studios to arrive on PC, with Guerrilla Games’ Horizon Zero Dawn ported back in August 2020. The sequel, Horizon Forbidden West, is expected to launch later in 2021. When asked about how Sony learned from bringing Horizon Zero Dawn to PC, Ryan said that “…people liked it and they bought it” with Sony continuing to take “mission steps in this direction.”
We’ll be sure to share more when we learn the exact release date of Days Gone on PC, as well as what other PlayStation titles will be joining it. In her Days Gone review of the PS4 version, PlayStation lead Jennifer Locke wrote that ” Days Gone is amazing for what it is: an open-world survival adventure that features a compelling main character and a surprising amount of heart at its center. Despite its faults, it’s a terrific addition to PlayStation’s outstanding exclusives portfolio.”
