Ghost of Tsushima has become Sony’s largest single-player PlayStation PC release

Ghost of Tsushima overtakes God of War to become Sony’s top single-player PC release

Last week, Ghost of Tsushima launched on PC, and it has quickly become Sony’s most popular single-player PlayStation PC release to date. With a peak concurrent player count of 77,154 on Steam, the game has overtaken both Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered and God of War. Now, only Helldivers, a multiplayer-only game, has more players.

Sony’s first party games have found a lot of success on PC despite their long periods of exclusivity on PS4 and PS5. Ghost of Tsushima released in 2020 on PlayStation 4, making the game almost four years old at the time of writing. Despite the game’s age, Ghost of Tsushima has proven to be incredibly popular on PC. This has once again proven that there is a lot of demand for Sony’s first party games on PC.

We have written a detailed PC Performance Review and Optimisation Guide for Ghost of Tsushima. The game runs well on modern PCs, and is free from issues like shader compilation stutters and other issues that plague some PC game releases. Ghost of Tsushima proves that a well made port of an old PlayStation game can sell well on PC. Examples like The last of Us Part 1, and Uncharted Legacy of Thieves proves that lower quality PC releases will harm sales on PC.

What will be Sony’s next PlayStation-to-PC conversion? God of War Ragnarok is a likely candidate. The Last of Us Part II could also be a major seller. Beyond that, Grand Turismo 7 is also a possibility. It’s also like to see Demon’s Souls, Shadow of the Colossus (PS4 Remake), and Bloodborne come to PC.
