Sony creates new PlayStation PC label

Sony Interactive Entertainment has created a brand new PlayStation PC publishing label.

As spotted by VGC, Steam users noticed that the console giant started to switch its titles on the platform from PlayStation Mobile to PlayStation PC. This entity – according to Corporation Wiki – is a brand new label registered by SIE's US headquarters in April of this year.

This is yet another sign that PlayStation is going to be taking PC increasingly seriously as time goes on.

This move started with Horizon Zero Dawn – originally a PlayStation 4 exclusive made by Dutch developer Guerrilla Games – coming to PC in 2020. It was followed by Bend Studios' Days Gone, while Sony recently revealed that 2018's God of War was coming to Steam and the Epic Games Store at the start of 2022.

SIE boss Jim Ryan has said that it is working on more PC ports of its console titles, with the firm recently acquiring PC porting specialist Nixxes earlier in the year.

Former PlayStation US boss Shawn Layden recently said that he reckons titles would not be launching on console and PC on the same day, with the latter versions of these titles being released later down the line after sales have started to slow down.
