Sony's PlayStation consoles boast a roster of award-winning exclusive titles like The Last of Us, God of War, and Horizon Zero Dawn, that keep players returning to the company's consoles. But while many of these games previously were only available to play on certain generations of PlayStation consoles, they have recently begun being made available for PC.

With the release of Horizon Forbidden West, the Zero Dawn sequel, many are wondering if the game will get a release date for the PC.

Is there a release date for 'Horizon Forbidden West' on PC?

Sony has made it clear that it intends to bring more of its games to the PC, expanding its playing audience even further, though none of the PlayStation exclusives become available on Steam in the first few months after their initial release.

That said, Nixxes Software has officially confirmed that Horizon Forbidden West and its DLC Burning Shores will be coming to PC in "early 2024," though an exact release date has yet to be revealed.

Horizon Zero Dawn made its debut for the PlayStation 4 in 2017, becoming one of the console's award-winning exclusives, but it wasn't made available to PC players until August 2020.

Many of the other Sony-exclusive games that are currently available for PC players weren't ported until years after the game's release. The soonest a PlayStation game has been made available for the PC is Helldivers, which was released on March 3, 2015, and brought to the PC in early December that same year.

"Releasing one first-party AAA title to PC doesn’t necessarily mean that every game now will come to PC,” Sony’s head of worldwide studios, Herman Hulst, said of Horizon Zero Dawn's PC launch in October. “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 percent committed to dedicated hardware."

Considering the graphics needed to run the game on the PS5, expect Horizon Forbidden West to be another game that requires some hefty PC specs to run it to its full potential.

What PlayStation games are currently available for the PC?

At this time, only a handful of Sony-exclusive games have been ported to the PC, but the company has previously said that it plans to bring more of its games to the PC in the future.

Right now, players can buy these Sony games through Steam:

  • Helldivers Dive Harder Edition
  • Everybody's Gone to the Rapture
  • Guns Up!
  • Horizon Zero Dawn
  • Predator: Hunting Grounds
  • Days Gone
  • God of War

Sony is also planning to bring Nathan Drake's story to PC users sometime this year. Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is set to release on Steam sometime in 2022, though at this time there is no exact release date.

This bundle includes both Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Unfortunately, there is not a way to play the other games in the Uncharted franchise on PC at this time.
