Job listings on Sony’s employment site reveal that the PlayStation’s expanding library of PC titles might be becoming much bigger in the near future, as the company is seeking to recruit a “senior director of PC planning and strategy” (via PC Gamer).

Sony’s worldwide strategy for PC gaming will be in the hands of whomever obtains the position, and they will collaborate with PC game distributors like Steam and Epic Games to build the brand.


Since God of War shown exactly how effective Sony’s new focus on PC might be a few months ago, this new employment post highlighting PlayStation’s continued interest on PC is good news. It implies that other popular games like God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, and Death Stranding might be ported to the PC in the future (2018).

We hope Sony considers titles like Bloodborne, Spider-Man and Spider-Man: Miles Morales, The Last of Us, Returnal, Ghost of Tsushima, or even Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart as contenders for the PC makeover. All of these games are amazing and would play as good as, if not better than, their console counterparts.

Until you recall that Xbox Game Pass exists, this seems like a terrific bargain Subscription levels include PC versions of all featured titles. If you want to play all of Xbox’s first-party titles like Halo: Infinite and Forza Horizon 5, you don’t have to purchase each one individually.


But PlayStation Plus’ PC service is solely for streaming games and not for the native PC versions as Xbox does. Sony’s PS Plus relaunch may have been a mistake because of this and the fact that there is no compatibility for iOS or Android devices. However, there’s plenty of possibility to expand into these niches and provide players with a service that’s just as valuable as Xbox Game Pass.
