Uncharted 4, one of the most critically acclaimed and best-selling PlayStation exclusives released during the PS4 generation, will soon follow other original PlayStation PC games. Sony announced the news during an investor call (via VGC), where the company explained its strategy to find new areas of growth beyond its console business.
According to Niko Partners, Uncharted 4 has sold over 16 million copies since its release in 2016, making it the best-selling PlayStation exclusive game ahead of Marvel's Spiderman (13,2M) and Horizon Zero Dawn (10M). The latter was recently released for PC and became an instant bestseller, so it really makes sense for Sony to keep releasing more of their old classic PlayStation exclusives for PC.Read also

There is currently no release date for the PC version of Uncharted 4, although Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan said during the investor call that new PC releases of PlayStation are planned for this year “and beyond. Earlier this month, survival horror game Days Gone was the latest first PlayStation game released for PC.
It's interesting to see Sony follow Microsoft's strategy of releasing its original games on PC, although the main difference is that Xbox Game Studios titles now release day one for Xbox, PC, and Xbox Game Pass. Sony apparently prefers to wait a few years before releasing its original games on Windows, and it makes sense to do so to boost its consoles and game sales.
Either way, there's definitely a huge audience for PlayStation exclusive games on PC, and hit games like Uncharted 4, Marvel's Spiderman, and The Last of Us would no doubt sell very well on Steam or other PC game stores. We'll see what happens in the near future, but it's good to see that PC gamers won't necessarily need to buy a PlayStation console to play Sony exclusive games.
