However, the biggest highlight of the report for many remained the PC release of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. Under a banner called ‘More PC releases planned’, the report showcased Days Gone and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.

Interestingly, Days Gone released on PC recently and has been a massive hit. Hence, it is safe to assume that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will be the next PlayStation exclusive to arrive on Microsoft Windows in the near future.

By releasing more games on PC, Sony has certainly made a fortune. For example, Horizon Zero Dawn has made a staggering 250% return-on-investment since its release on PC. Moreover, the game’s user-base has welcomed players from new regions such as China, Russia and India. In contrast to America, Japan, and Europe, PC gaming is far more prevalent than consoles in these regions.

Sony’s roadmap for 2021 and the PS5

Time and again, Sony has showed confidence in its latest console, the PlayStation 5. So much so that the company wants to make the PS5 its biggest platform ever.

The PS5 has made the highest launch year sales ever, but its demand is still increasing. Furthermore, Sony’s reports suggest that the demographics of PlayStation consoles has been improving with the inclusion of female gamers and people outside North America, Europe and Japan.

As compared to the PS4, the PS5 has already had a better launch line-up with Spider-Man: Miles Morales and the Demon’s Souls Remake. This list will get even better with the likes of Final Fantasy XVI Remake, Horizon Forbidden West, and God of War, among others.

It seems like Sony is leaving no stones unturned to expand its eco-system and generate massive profits. As for now, PC gamers can enjoy Days Gone, and wait for the release of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
