Horizon Zero Dawn, and Bend Studio‘s Days Gone, which released recently on PC – two years after its launch on PS4. Both games were met with positive reception and sales which further strengthened Sony’s efforts to bring more titles to the platform, though Hermen has stated that “PlayStation will remain the best place to play our PlayStation Studios titles at launch. But we do value PC gamers, and we’ll continue to look at the right times to launch each game.” which could indicate that PC ports for various exclusive titles could be released a few years after their launch on consoles down the line.
