It looks like Sony may be working on its own PlayStation PC player. PlayStation PC references have been discovered in the latest version of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered on PC, and VGC has verified that the references are genuine.
A PlayStation game console PC launcher would compliment Sony greatly. Sony wants nearly half of its games to be on PC and mobile by 2025, and the company plans to bring more PlayStation games to PC over the past year. Games like Horizon Zero Dawn, Days Gone, God of War, and Spider-Man Remastered have been released on PC in the past few years, and Sony started using the PlayStation PC poster last year along with acquiring a port developer for PC. So everything lines up.
The launch program will allow Sony to maximize its revenue from PC games, but that’s not all. It can also allow features such as cross-purchase and PlayStation Network (PSN) integration. References to PSN integration have also been discovered in the PC port of Spider-Man Remastered, and there are rumors that Insomniac Games have been experimenting with PSN linking bonuses for Spider-Man as well.
Sony has not officially commented on this news yet, but we know that the company recently launched an official website dedicated to PlayStation PC games. The next PlayStation games coming to PC are Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales in the fall and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection in 2022.
