It looks like Sony may be working on their own PlayStation launcher for PC. Links to the PlayStation PC launcher were found in a recent release of Marvel’s SpiderMan Remastered for PC, and VGC has confirmed that the links are real.
The PlayStation Game Launcher on PC will be a great addition for Sony. Sony wants about half of its games to be on PC and mobile by 2025, and the company plans to bring more PlayStation games to PC over the past year. Games like Horizon Zero Dawn, Days Gone, God of War, and SpiderMan Remastered have launched on PC over the past few years, and Sony began using the PlayStation PC label last year along with the acquisition of the PC port developer. So everything fits.
The launcher would allow Sony to maximize its gaming revenue, but that’s not all. It may also enable features such as crosspurchase and PlayStation Network (PSN) integration. Links to PSN integration have also been found in the PC port of SpiderMan Remastered, and it is rumored that Insomniac Games has been experimenting with PSNlinking bonuses for SpiderMan.
Sony has yet to officially comment on the news, but we do know that the company recently launched an official website dedicated to PlayStation games for PC. The next PlayStation games to hit PC are Marvel’s SpiderMan: Miles Morales in the fall and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection in 2022.
