Sony seems determined to step up a gear in its strategy of porting its PlayStation games to PC. The publisher is looking for a new key position that focuses entirely on this market.
PlayStation’s first steps on PC were finally conclusive. So much so that the Japanese company apparently wants to establish itself more openly in this segment, no doubt to prepare for the arrival of its future service games.
PlayStation wants to accelerate its PC strategy
Ports of PlayStation games to PC are intensified. Sony’s strategy has paid off in recent months. Horizon Zero Dawn, Days Gone or even God of War have all been successful and managed to find new audiences. Building on this success, the Japanese company intends to accelerate its implementation on PC.
Indeed, PlayStation is looking for a commercial manager to be in charge of planning and strategy on PC. The successful candidate must then identify the sectors and partnerships conducive to driving commercial growth of PS5 and PS4 games on PC. This includes strategic business partners such as Steam and Epic Games. Sony should therefore not tempt fate by creating its own platform and will resort to existing ones.
PC ports that arrive faster?
His task will not stop here, as the lucky one must be able to “ Be flexible and open to changing roles and responsibilities based on the changing needs of this business unit as it grows and expands “. And since the question of active players is mentioned directly in the job offer, we assume that games with multiplayer connotation will also be there. This strategy is also reflected in the acquisition of Bungie, which will help the Japanese giant, develop more cross-platform service games.
In other words, PlayStation has every intention of expanding its PC label. Hopefully, after the release of Horizon Forbidden West and God of War Ragnarok, it won’t be many years before they come to PC. For example, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, which released earlier this year, is slated to be available this summer. We’re betting that this six month gap will become the new normal and that perhaps awaited PS4 and PS5 games like Bloodborne will finally arrive on these machines.
