Sony on Wednesday announced another major PlayStation exclusive game, 2018's God of War reboot, would be making its way to the PC platform early next year. The company intends to distribute the game through both the Epic Game Store and Valve's Steam on Jan. 22.
As part of its announcement, Sony said God of War has sold more than 19.5 million copies for the PlayStation 4 platform, surpassing former sales leader Uncharted 4: Thief's End and making the Santa Monica Studio title the most successful PlayStation Studios release to date.
"Our primary goal when bringing God of War to PC was to highlight the exceptional content the team created and leverage the powerful hardware that the platform offers to create a uniquely breathtaking and high-performance version of the game," reads a blog post by Santa Monica Studio community manager Grace Orlady. "You'll be able to enjoy the full potential of our cinematic, no-cut camera as it follows Kratos and Atreus across the realms with the option of true 4k resolution, on supported devices, and unlocked framerates."
Sony has been more aggressive in the last few years about expanding its original games portfolio beyond the PlayStation, starting with Guerrilla Games' Horizon Zero Dawn and then zombie survival game Days Gone, with confirmed plans to port Naughty Dog's Uncharted 4 as well.
Earlier this year, Sony acquired both Bluepoint and Nixxes, companies specializing respectively in remastering games and porting games to the PC platform, to accelerate those efforts, which are partly a response to competitor Microsoft's Xbox platform and the Windows maker's device-agnostic approach to game releases.
