Because Sony has every intention of continuing to double down on its plans to expand its presence on the PC platform, it should not come as a surprise that recent releases have enjoyed quite a bit of success, especially in terms of sales. In the past few years, Sony has brought some of its biggest first-party PlayStation exclusives to PC in an effort to expand its presence on the platform.
Sony recently gave a presentation to investors, during which they discussed the exponential growth the company has experienced on PCs. The company had revenue of $35 million from PC games during the fiscal year 2020, which then skyrocketed to $80 million during the fiscal year 2021. Sony forecasts that it will earn $300 million in sales from PC games during its fiscal year 2022 (which begins on April 1, 2023).
Additionally, Sony has updated the sales data that it has disclosed for three of its most successful PC titles to this point. The PC version of Horizon Zero Dawn has already racked up 2.398 million sales, raking in a total of $60 million in revenue. Days Gone, on the other hand, has generated a lifetime revenue of $22.7 million thanks to the sale of more than 852,000 pieces. Then there is God of War, which was released for personal computers (PCs) in January of this year. That has already brought in over $26.2 million units thanks to the sale of over 971,000 units.
As of the month of March in 2022, each of these data is accurate.
During the course of the presentation, the firm went on to clarify that by the end of the fiscal year 2025, it anticipates that approximately half of all of its new releases will be made available on PC and mobile platforms. Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is the only upcoming PC game that Sony has publicly confirmed. However, this will almost certainly alter over the next few months.
