There are only a few names and franchises that are synonymous with the PlayStation brand. Chief among those is Nathan Drake, the protagonist of the Uncharted franchise. However, while one of Naughty Dogs' best-selling titles have long been exclusive to the PlayStation consoles, it seems like an Uncharted 4 PC port is coming sooner than most people expected.
Is The Uncharted 4 PC Port Confirmed?
According to a PlayStation Investor Report, which revealed many of the things that Sony Interactive Entertainment has planned in the coming months, the Uncharted 4 PC port is the next in line after Days Gone and Horizon: Zero Dawn.
In the leaked presentation, one of the slides lists Uncharted 4: A Thiefs End under the section, "More PC releases planned". Interestingly enough, the title sits alongside Bend Studio's Days Gone, which just saw a release on the PC.
For those who missed it, Bend Studio was supposed to work on an Uncharted spin-off but later declined to instead work on an entirely new IP.
With that said, the presentation had a lot of juicy information for PlayStation plans. This includes Sony's goals to expand to mobile games, describing it as a new growth area. Perhaps this is why Sony was spotted hiring for a Head of Mobile. And, also, Sony just confirmed that the God of War sequel will indeed be called God of War: Ragnarok.
Moving on, the move to release an Uncharted 4 PC port seems in line with Jim Ryan's earlier statement.
So far, Sony has ported Guerilla Games' Horizon: Zero Dawn and Bend Studios' Days Gone on the PC. The two have been massive successes so far. This means that it should come off as no surprise that Sony plans on making more of its older first-party titles available on the PC. But, of course, anyone who's been following us closely knows that Sony hasn't been too subtle about this, as shown here.
If an Uncharted 4 PC port is indeed coming soon, then it will represent Sony's biggest first-party PC port yet.
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is widely considered one of the best PlayStation games ever released. It also sits second on the best-selling PS4 games ever, with 16 million copies sold since it was released in 2016. And, even though it is definitely good news, most PlayStation fans are still hoping for an official PS5 update for Uncharted 4 that will allow gamers to play the game in native 4K resolution at 60 frames per second.
Of course, with the next PlayStation State of Play scheduled to talk a bit more about other stuff before Horizon Forbidden West, the PS5 update and Uncharted 4 PC port may be announced by then.
