Horizon: Zero Dawn has just been confirmed for a PC release this summer, and it's the kind of announcement that has some PlayStation fans worried that the company is slowly abandoning its own systems. After all, the PS4's runaway success can be attributed, at least in part, to its lineup of stellar first-party exclusives, like Uncharted 4, God of War, and the aforementioned Horizon -- great games that you simply can't play anywhere else.
But with Horizon heading to PC, does this mean that every PlayStation exclusive is up for grabs? Is this Sony's new strategy? Not necessarily, according to Head of PlayStation Worldwide Studios Hermen Hulst.
"And to maybe put a few minds at ease, releasing one first-party AAA title to PC doesn’t necessarily mean that every game now will come to PC," Hulst states in a new interview. "In my mind, Horizon Zero Dawn was just a great fit in this particular instance. We don’t have plans for day and date [PC releases], and we remain 100% committed to dedicated hardware."
It's a quote that may coax a sigh of relief from some fans, but there's still no denying that Sony is open to making its games more accessible. Indeed, we've already seen the firm branch out with PlayStation Now, which allows subscribers to stream PS4 and PS3 exclusives on PC and other devices.
But for now, you obviously don't have to worry about PlayStation ditching PlayStation.
