The status unhappy dads are coming. No, I am not speaking about Alec (RPS in peace), however new PlayStation first-party video games headed to PC. After the success of Horizon: Zero Daybreak, which was launched for PC final 12 months, Sony Interactive Leisure president Jim Ryan says extra are on the way in which. The primary can be open world zombie survival/spouse man drama Days Gone, which is coming this spring.
Chatting with GQ, Ryan mentioned that Sony thought-about Horizon’s launch on PC a hit.
“We assessed the train in two methods,” he mentioned. “Firstly, when it comes to the easy success of the exercise of publishing the sport on PC, folks preferred it and so they purchased it. We additionally checked out it by way of the lens of what the PlayStation neighborhood thought of it. There was no large hostile response to it. So we’ll proceed to take mission steps on this route.”
I’m glad he thinks that, as a result of I would like all video games in all places to return to PC, however personally I might say that the hostile response to it was fairly large. A look on the graph on Steam exhibits that in its month of launch, it had over 5000 unfavorable evaluations, most citing efficiency points, crashes, and different glitches. Perhaps that wasn’t the form of “hostile response” Ryan was looking for, and the problems gave the impression to be fastened by way of post-release patches.
Ryan additionally cited porting being simpler than prior to now, the upper price of constructing video games, and the chance to “expose these nice video games to a wider viewers” as causes for bringing extra Sony video games to PC.
Days Gone would be the first, arriving someday within the spring. The open world zombie sport was one of many worst obtained of Sony’s first-party video games over the past console technology, however hopefully it is one other step in direction of getting Spider-Man and God Of Struggle on PC.
