God of War, another exclusive that leaves the Sony consoles
In recent years, Sony has slowly started to bring its PlayStation exclusives to PC, with plans to port more titles in the future. God of War will join other great exclusives such as Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone among the list of games that have made the leap to Windows. The timing of the release should also help Sony build even more buzz for God of War Ragnarok, which, while still lacking a specific release date, is expected to arrive sometime in 2022.
It is curious to see how the general trend of developers is increasingly moving towards this multiplatform format instead of looking for real exclusivity, opting for temporary exclusivities, like those already seen in the Epic Games Store or Sony itself, which has already raised some strong rumors for some of its most powerful releases such as Demon’s Souls or Final Fantasy XVI.
