Sony might be starting to open its eyes toward multi-platform releases. Horizon: Zero Dawn, the critically acclaimed PlayStation 4 exclusive title, will be releasing on PC later this year.
According to sources at Kotaku, Sony is planning on releasing Horizon: Zero Dawn on PC. This is a first for the company, who has been fairly insistent on keeping their exclusive games on their consoles. A solid date or marketplace has not been detailed, but it is assumed to be released on Steam at this time.
Horizon: Zero Dawn is an open-world adventure game set in a deep future where mankind was overtaken by self-replicating, man-eating giant robot dinosaurs. The game released in early 2017 as a PlayStation 4 exclusive.
This won't be the first time a PlayStation exclusive will release on PC. The same has happened with games like Detroit: Become Human and Death Stranding.
Speaking of which. Death Stranding, which is currently a PS4 exclusive, will be releasing on PC later this year. The game features hologram easter eggs relating to Horizon: Zero Dawn. This is largely attributed to the fact that Kojima Productions was given permission to use Horizon developer Guerrilla's Decima Engine. In hindsight, it was already foreseen that the engine is capable of PC porting when Death Strandings PC port was announced. It makes sense that Horizon would see the same treatment.
What's different this time is that this is actually a Sony published game. All of the other "exclusive to PC" ports were published by third parties.
More information about the PC release of Horizon: Zero Dawn will be reported as the information becomes available. Stay tuned.
