Yesterday, Steam users noticed that Sony silently made a major change and had their publisher switched to PlayStation PC LL, from the previous PlayStation Mobile label.

According to a Corporation Wiki listing, Sony Interactive Entertainment registered the PlayStation PC name in April this year via its California-based headquarters.

And although the name appears to be a formality, it represents another strong signal that Sony intends to increase its gaming output on the PC platform. Excellent news, right?

More PlayStation exclusives are coming to Steam

Sony’s first modern exclusives to transition to PC were Horizon Zero Dawn, which came in August 2020, and Days Gone, the open-world zombie survival that was added this May.

Even more good news is that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will also make the jump to PC in 2022, shortly after they become available for PS5.

Oh, and let’s not forget that God of War was also announced as an upcoming exclusive title coming to Steam, so, all-in-all, a lot of reasons to be happy about if you are a PC gamer.

Another PlayStation title, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, may be coming to PC too, according to a listing spotted on Steam’s database this week.

In a corporate report published last summer, Sony first said it would explore bringing more PlayStation exclusives to PC, following Horizon Zero Dawn’s release on the platform.

SIE boss Jim Ryan said that the opportunity to bring PlayStation’s IPs to a wider audience, as well as an easier port process, meant that making more games for PC was now a fairly straightforward decision for the company.

Also worth mentioning is that PlayStation recently acquired Nixxes Software, which is best known for its work on the PC versions of Square Enix properties including Tomb Raider, Deus Ex, Hitman, and Thief, to help it bring its games to the platform.
