Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will be coming to PC, so it will no longer be exclusive to the PlayStation 4 console.
PlayStation fans have seen how some, if not most, of its exclusives, come to PC with many improvements. One of those exclusives is now Uncharted 4, which has just been announced to be coming to PC.
That’s right, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has just officially lost its exclusivity and will be coming to PC in the future. So without further ado, let’s take a look at everything that’s coming with this PC game.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End details
Through a statement of current plans and numbers that Sony released, we can learn many things about the company and the way it has been working on its games and IPs.
For example, we can learn that currently, the number of women owners of a PS4 and PS5 console is 41% which is a significant difference if we compare it with the owners of a PS1 in its time, a figure that reached only 18%.
Among all the statistics we can find here, we have that Sony plans to release more PC games in the future. Based on the Days Gone game, which is already on PC, and many gamers who never owned a PS4 are enjoying it, you can see the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End logo right under the Days Gone logo.
That means that the days of exclusivity of this last generation title are numbered. While we don’t know when it is that this game will leave behind its exclusivity, at least we can be sure that at some point in the future we might see it on a platform other than the PlayStation 4.
So that’s the official information from Sony, so we can only wait for the announcement of the release date of the fourth installment of Uncharted for PC and, above all, the price and the platform on which you can buy this game.
This, along with the new Uncharted movie where we will be able to see Tom Holland take on the role of Nathan Drake, makes us think that the franchise still has a lot of life left in it and that it is likely that another game for the new generation is also in the works, although the latter is just our speculation.
A long history of lost exclusives
Despite what you might think, PlayStation exclusive games haven’t stayed that way for long, in the same way that Xbox exclusives have been affected. It’s not that they stop being good games, but that they stop being console exclusives and end up coming to PC.
Interestingly, not all PS4 and PS5 exclusive games have been brought to PC, but it seems that the trend is not about to end, not even close. We know this thanks to the fact that one of the most talked-about PS4 exclusives was recently brought to PC, we’re talking about Days Gone. But those are not all the games that have had this treatment.
Games like Death Stranding or Horizon: Zero Dawn have been brought to PC as well, the place where they have managed to position themselves as some of the best-selling games, plus they look amazing (the same happens with Days Gone.
This shows that while a game might not work among console fans, as in the case of Death Stranding, bringing it to PC ensures that more people can get to know it and, therefore, it can sell much more than originally intended. Whichever way you look at it, it’s all advantage.
