PlayStation Committed To Bringing “Select” First-Party Titles To PC
PlayStation remains committed to bringing “select” titles from its first-party lineup of exclusives to PC.
When making the announcement regarding the acquisition of Savage Game Studios, Herman Hulst reaffirmed that the company remains committed to its plans to bring “select” titles to PC. The choice of words here is interesting, as “select titles” implies that not all PlayStation first-party games will make their way to PC. However, we’ve already seen some of the publisher’s biggest franchise either already make their way to or on their way to PC, including God of War, Spider-Man, Uncharted, and The Last of Us.
With the announcement of the acquisition of Savage Game Studios, PlayStation is now looking to expand its community to the mobile market, alongside PC. However, Hulst assured PlayStation fans that none of these efforts beyond console will diminish the company’s commitment to its primary community. He also added that these steps would not come in the way of the company‘s passion to keep making big budget single-player, narrative-driven experiences.
According to Hulst, PlayStation’s mobile gaming efforts will be similarly additive, providing more ways for more people to engage with its content, and striving to reach new audiences unfamiliar with the brand and its games. Savage Game Studios is joining a newly created PlayStation Studios Mobile Division, which will operate independently from PlayStation’s console development and focus on innovative, on-the-go experiences based on new and existing first-party IP.
Hulst reminded PlayStation fans that PlayStation VR2 is also on the horizon, and promises a huge leap forward in presence and immersion, bolstered by titles like Horizon: Call of the Mountain. The publisher is also looking forward to the release of its next PC titles, with Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection and Marvel’s Spider-Man giving those not playing on PlayStation hardware a further taste of its library of first-party titles.
