Helldivers PS4 PlayStation 4 Steam PC

Well, this is potentially huge news: Sony's bringing Helldivers to the PC. The game, which launched as a PlayStation exclusive earlier in the year, will be published by a company called PlayStation Mobile, Inc on the popular plaza. This is a division within SCE that has handled various smartphone spin-offs in the past, too.

This is massive because the Japanese giant actually owns the brand – it's not in any way comparable to a Pub Fund title like Guacamelee going multiplatform. It, of course, opens up the possibility of games like Resogun or Everybody's Gone to the Rapture coming to the PC, too – even if we think that it's unlikely ourselves.

To be frank, we're not sure how we feel about this move. On the one hand, it means that more people are going to get to play a great game – but Sony has no horse in the PC race, so it's strange to see it bringing one of its releases to Steam. It'll be interesting to see whether this is just a one off – or if others will follow suit.
