Sony formed a PlayStation PC publishing company in 2021 and has brought plenty of previous PlayStation exclusive games to PC, with Death Stranding, Horizon Zero Dawn and God of War among them. (Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection will be released later this year.) This ongoing experiment has clearly benefited the company, and the latest sign of it is a job posting for a senior director of PC planning and strategy at PlayStation Global.
If you were afraid that Sony’s roll of PC games might be short, this list is more proof that it will continue in the long run. Whoever gets the role, “will be responsible for the strategy and commercial activity within Global Channel sales and will deliver a single, optimized PC sales growth and commercial plan for hub and territory teams to implement.” I expect the plan to be something a little more involved than “put Bloodborne on the PC already.”
Bringing already popular games to PC is a strategy that has worked for Sony so far. God of War was Sony’s biggest PC launch, but Horizon Zero Dawn also sold well and Days Gone respectably. There are plenty of other big budget action games on the console still waiting to be transferred – honestly, Bloodborne can wait if that means getting Spider-Man in the hands of modders faster – but presumably Sony’s plans will go beyond that .
Simultaneous releases of future games would be an obvious next step once the backlog of prestige exclusives has been worked through. The question is whether brand new games will be released on Steam, Epic or a potential PlayStation launcher? Some kind of PSN for PC, maybe with cross storage and shared trophies? Given that Bethesda has just announced the shutdown date for its launcher, Sony’s new senior director of PC planning and strategy might read the writing on the wall there.
