The rumors come back to a PlayStation launcher for PCand this time we could say that the information it’s officialand it is that some data miners have discovered clues in the game Spider-Man Remastered in its PC version, where there is a line of text that refers to a “PlayStation PC Launcher“, which clearly indicates that SONY would be interested in launching your own game store for PC users.
This movement will be a reality despite the fact that, at present, all of its published titles have reached as much on Steam as well as on the Epic Games Store.
Will the PlayStation PC launcher manage to have “exclusivity” on PC?
Rumor has it that if the company decides to launch its games on its platform from now on, SONY might start requiring a PlayStation Network account to play its games on PC in the future, and that might just be the beginning, as it could also mean increasing the number of games coming to PC, but exclusively on your platformwhich would thus avoid losing money for each sale made in view of the commissions that Steam and Epic Games Store currently take.
That, in the worst case scenario, is unclear if it will follow in the footsteps of Microsoft, which offers all of its games through its own store and launcher, but also makes most of its games available on other platforms such than Steam or Epic Games Store. . .
On the other hand, SONY is used to own the platform on which you launch your games, and you might get tired of handing over some of your revenue to Valve and Epic. We’ll see what happens, as players are bored of having a dozen launchers installed.
As of now, the company’s next release for PC is Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection and The Last of Us Part I, with both games still having no release date, so who knows if either of these titles will debut in the PlayStation PC launcher.
