Ighor July, a software developer first spotted on Reddit, recently ran a datamine from Nvidia’s GeForce Now database, which records multiple titles on the way to the service and then on the PC. That’s because Nvidia’s cloud gaming service streams PC games from storefronts like the Epic Games Store and Steam.
A new leak suggests that Santa Monica Studios’ hit God of War from 2018 is the next exclusive PlayStation to make the leap to PC.
In particular, it should be noted that God of War is coming to PC via Steam, although this version can be streamed via the cloud gaming service.
However, more first-party PlayStation games are about to move in as Sony moves in a direction that brings more of its exclusive products to the PC. Earlier games released on PS4 and then ported to PC include Guerilla Games’ Horizon Zero Dawn and Bend Studio’s Days Gone. In addition, the adventure games Uncharted IV: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will be remastered by Naughty Dog and packaged as the Legacy of Thieves Collection for the PC.
The Datamine also mentions several other games, from games that are supposedly in the works, games that have already been announced or are available on PC, or games that are currently exclusively available on consoles. These include the long-rumored Grand Theft Auto Remastered trilogy as well as PlayStation exclusives like Bluepoint’s Demon Souls Remake and Housemarques Returnal. Again, Datamine does not confirm or deny any of the games listed and should be viewed with caution.
To further support this direction, Sony announced earlier this year that it had acquired the Dutch studio Nixxes, a company that specializes in porting games to PCs.
