[Update #2: Sony has confirmed that the listings for its PS4 exclusive titles on PC are inaccurate and an error on Amazon’s part. The original story follows.]
[UPDATE: A few minutes after the original story about Days Gone, it seems like Amazon France has also listed a PC version of Persona 5 Royal. Original story follows]
A new listing by Amazon France has listed the PS4 exclusive Days Gone to be coming to PC. The listing was first spotted by Nibel on twitter, which you can check out for yourself here.
Days Gone came out in 2019 on PS4 and was received fairly well. While the game had some interesting mechanics, it was ultimately a let down for many due to its story and characters. Nevertheless, Days Gone proved yet again to be a technical showpiece at times for the aeging PS4, as the game’s zombie hordes were certainly the highlight for many.
If this leak turns out to be true, then Days Gone will join Horizon Zero Dawn as another PS4 exclusive that’s being ported to PC years after its release. You can also count in Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding as another PS4 title which will come to PC this summer.
For those of you who’ve been following Sony closely (especially for PS5 announcements), this news really shouldn’t come as a surprise. Recently, PlayStation worldwide studios boss Herman Hulst revealed their plans for porting certain PlayStation exclusive titles to PC. While at the time he said that Horizon Zero Dawn was the only game they were planning to release on PC, it seems like the Days Gone PC reveal was also in the works secretly. After all, the former reveal was also leaked in Amazon product listings, and Days Gone wasn’t the console seller Sony hoped it would be.
Update: Having played Persona 5 on PS4, the thought of it coming to PC should also come as great news to any RPG fan. Persona 5 is essentially a high-school anime with RPG mechanics, so make of that what you will. The game originally came out in 2017, and Royal, a more complete edition, was released earlier this year.
In any case, it’ll be interesting to see where PlayStation goes from here. Perhaps these games are ported to PC to hype up their PS5 sequels? It’s certainly a strategy that could work, which I’m really excited about!
