Day full of themed announcements PlayStationwith major announcements covering some big ones PS4 and PS5 exclusives.
PlayStation boss Jim Ryan argued with GQ some of the news from Sony’s gaming world in the coming months, confirming a trend already inaugurated with Horizon: Zero Dawn and Death Stranding: more PlayStation Studios titles will arrive on PC in the near future.
The first on this list will be Days Gonethe zombie-themed open world developed by Sony Bend and released on PS4 in 2019. The arrival of the game on PC is set for the spring of this year, although for the moment the further details are hiding: it won’t be long anyway time before Sony and Sony Bend will talk about the new release of Days Gone, as it shouldn’t be long.
What about PlayStation games on PC? A whole list of these is on the way starting with Days Gone this spring.
There are no other indications regarding the other PlayStation Studios titles that will land on PC, however the main suspects remain Dreams (Media Molecule has already expressed in the past the desire to convert the game to the computer) and the two blockbusters God of War and Marvel’s Spider-Man, one of the most awarded and appreciated games of the last generation.
However, not only good news comes from Jim Ryan, because, as confirmed by the PlayStation boss, the Coronavirus has caused a series of unpredictable side effects that have upset Sony’s plans.
One of these effects is the postponement of Gran Turismo 7 to 2022: Initially scheduled for this year, the new chapter of Polyphony Digital’s racing series will not be able to arrive on PS5 by the end of 2021.
GT7 has been affected by the production challenges related to Covid, and therefore will move from 2021 to 2022. With the pandemic underway, it is a dynamic and changing situation, and some critical aspects of game production have been slowed down in recent months. We will share more specific information on the GT7 release date when possible.
Ryan then reiterates that Returnal, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and Horizon: Forbidden West should not suffer further postponementsand which continue to be slated for 2021. Curiously, Ryan’s responses to the interview are missing one of the most anticipated titles from this year’s PS5 line-up, God of War II: Ragnarok. Is Sony Santa Monica’s game close to an official postponement?
