As Sony continues to expand their games business into the home computer market, it seems like a PC port of Ghost of Tsushima to Windows 10 and Windows 11 is all but an eventuality.
PlayStation Studios’ next two big releases on the PC platform are the excellent games Uncharted 4 and God of War 2018 (both of which were previously exclusive to the PlayStation 4) which fits in with Sony Interactive Entertainment’s previous release strategy of porting games after a delay, to encourage users to their hardware platform. We don’t expect that to change any time soon, based on quotes from current and former management.
As the game ages, and Ghost of Tsushima 2 approaches —likely with a better name like Ghost of Ikishima— we reckon that a multi-platform release for Ghost of Tsushima will probably be on the (graphics) cards.
What is Ghost of Tsushima?
Ghost of Tsushima is an open world action adventure game set in 1274. Players take on the role of Jin, the “Ghost of Tsushima” who wants nothing more than to get revenge on the Mongol invaders attacking his homeland after they kill his family and burn down his village.
The game has satisfying samurai movie style combat, an intense story, cool parkour and a grappling hook. It’s fantastic, and when it does hit PC then gamers are in for a real treat.
Was the Ghost of Tsushima PlayStation game in the GeForce NOW leak too?
Tsushima was not a part of the GeForce NOW leak like God of War was, but then again neither was Uncharted 4. We don’t consider it not being a part of the leak list to be a surefire way to determine that the game won’t ever come out on PC, as release schedules and platforms can and do change all the time.
We think that a release of the game before the end of 2022 is still very likely, especially as the franchise continues to grow and plans for the Ghost of Tsushima motion picture start to bear fruit. It wouldn’t be too strange, as Days Gone released in April 2019 and was on PC by May 2021. Ghost of Tsushima came out in July 2020, so really it could be here any day now.
Ghost of Tsushima’s box was also updated in June 2021 to remove the ‘only on PlayStation’ logo. This also happened to Days Gone and Horizon: Zero Dawn when ports were on the way, which has only increased belief that the samurai open world game is coming to PC even more among the gaming crowd.
Is Ghost of Tsushima the game you’d most like to see on PC next — or would you prefer something else, like The Last of Us Part 2? Maybe Parappa the Rapper and Patapon HD? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
