The rumors of Ghost of Tsushima possibly getting a PC port surfaced when a Reddit user pointed out that the “Only on PlayStation” tag has been removed from the game’s box cover art.
The reason why this subtle change in box art sparked rumors for a PC release is due to the fact that both Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone also had their “Only on PlayStation” tag removed after they were officially ported to PC.
Ghost of Tsushima quickly became a fan favorite once it was released on PlayStation in 2020. It captured the hearts of players with its stunning visuals and captivating soundtracks. The game went on to win multiple awards such as The Game Awards for Best Art Direction and BAFTA Games Award for Audio Achievement.
The game went on to sell 6.5 million units in just one year of its release. Since its release and enormous success, many players without a PlayStation have wished to try it. Now, it seems that their dreams of getting to play as Jin Sakai might be closer to reality.
Sony shows interest in porting more PlayStation Exclusives to PC
Recently, PlayStation has shown interest in porting more of its exclusives to PC. After Horizon Zero Dawn’s successful PC release, Sony’s President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Jim Ryan, had commented:
“We assessed the exercise in two ways. Firstly, in terms of the straightforward success of the activity of publishing the game on PC, people liked it and they bought it. We also looked at it through the lens of what the PlayStation community thought about it. There was no massive adverse reaction to it. So we will continue to take mission steps in this direction.”
The new cover had been uploaded alongside the listing of Ghost of Tsushima for Amazon Prime Day. It is currently available on Sony’s official PlayStation Direct Store. However, the rumor should only be taken with a grain of salt as a simple tag removal does not guarantee PC release.
