Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan in an interview with Famitsu was asked about PlayStation Studios releasing more games on PC
“PlayStation Studios will continue to focus on development for the [PlayStation 5],” said Ryan via Google Translate. “However, when I deem it appropriate, I think I will work on games that can expand beyond the boundaries of game consoles.
“When thinking about where to expand an attractive IP, it’s easy to come up with an answer about releasing it on PC because it’s all you have to do is port it. What’s more, what about movies, what about dramas? It’s attractive to be able to choose, and I’m very happy that the opportunities to choose are increasing more and more.”
He added, “We also fully understand the importance of PS5 exclusive titles. As I said earlier, PlayStation Studios’ main responsibility is to have people enjoy the gaming experience using the latest PS. We are increasing the number of PS5-exclusive titles and staggering the release of the PC version.
“I often have the opportunity to ask game fans for their opinions, and when I ask them about the time lag, they say that selling the PC version two or three years after the release of the PS version is accepted favorably.
“It’s a community that we should cherish the most. We will continue to listen to the voices of game fans and develop various titles in a multifaceted manner.”
PlayStation has released a number of games on PC including Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, God of War (2018), Uncharted,: Legacy of Thieves Collection, The Last of Us Part I, Horizon Zero Dawn, Returnal, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, and Days Gone.
