Some games have already had their port on PC, such as God of War, Spider-Man or Horizon Zero Dawn. But this is apparently not enough for Sony who would consider releasing a Playstation launcher on PC, in order to retain new players. References to a Playstation Network launcher have been found in Spider-Man’s PC game files, suggesting that these are indeed Sony’s plans.

Ghost of Tsushima is a new Playstation license launched in 2020. The game found its audience and ranked among the successes of the console. Sony seeking to expand its horizons, the company has set up a whole program of films and series adapted from its famous licenses for the years to come. The Uncharted film was successfully released earlier this year, and a The Last of Us series is in production at HBO, with many more series in the pipeline. Ghost of Tsushima is no exception and has found its director in the person of Chad Stahelski, known for directing the John Wick saga.
