Days Gone Is Coming to PC Later This Year

UPDATE 2: You can wishlist the game on Steam.

UPDATE: Bend Studio has also confirmed that the game is coming to PC this Spring.

Original article follows:

Remember when Horizon: Zero Dawn made its way to PC last year and stunned everybody? Well, GQ Magazine interviewed Jim Ryan (Sony Interactive Entertainment’s president and CEO) and they asked him about future PlayStation games coming to our platform of choice. Apparently there’s “a whole slate of them on the way” starting with Days Gone which should arrive this Spring.

Here is a key snippet from the interview:

What about PlayStation games on PC? A whole slate of them is on the way starting with Days Gone this spring.

And later on:

GQ: Fair enough. So releasing PlayStation games on PC was something that Sony PlayStation held back on for a long time. Now it sounds like you’re very much on that bandwagon. What changed?

I think a few things changed. We find ourselves now in early 2021 with our development studios and the games that they make in better shape than they’ve ever been before. Particularly from the latter half of the PS4 cycle our studios made some wonderful, great games. There’s an opportunity to expose those great games to a wider audience and recognise the economics of game development, which are not always straightforward. The cost of making games goes up with each cycle, as the calibre of the IP has improved. Also, our ease of making it available to non-console owners has grown. So it’s a fairly straightforward decision for us to make.

GQ: This is following on from your publishing Horizon Zero Dawn on PC in August last year. How did that go?

We assessed the exercise in two ways. Firstly, in terms of the straightforward success of the activity of publishing the game on PC, people liked it and they bought it. We also looked at it through the lens of what the PlayStation community thought about it. There was no massive adverse reaction to it. So we will continue to take mission steps in this direction.

Hopefully we’ll hear more details soon. Days Gone sounds like a pretty good time on a beefy PC!
