Returnal could be Sony's next PlayStation 5 Exclusive to cone to PC
On Icon-Era, a video has leaked that showcases an alleged PC version of Returnal, a PS5-exclusive roguelite that was created by Housemarque and published by Sony. The game has already proven to be a huge success on PlayStation 5, a factor that is certain to make the game a success on PC (should Sony release a PC version).
The video below showcases the graphical options menu of Returnal, showcasing various resolution scaling options including standard resolution scaling, dynamic resolution scaling, Nvidia DLSS, and AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR). In-game, Returnal appears to list AMD's FSR technology as a spatial upscaler, suggesting that the game supports FSR 1.0, not AMD's newer FSR 2.0 technology.
Sony has already revealed its plans to expand PlayStation's prescience within the PC gaming market, with recent PlayStation-to-PC releases being God of War, Days Gone, and Horizon Zero Dawn. Later this year, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is coming to PC, and Sony has confirmed that they expect their PC earnings to almost quadruple this year. That means that we should expect to see more Sony games arrive on PC in the near future.
Sony's financial expectations from the PC market have confirmed that several high profile PlayStation games will be coming to PC before March 2023, the end of Sony's current financial year. There is no reason to believe that Returnal won't be one of those games, especially now that the game has been found on Valve's Steam database.
With Returnal being an Unreal Engine 4 game, porting the AAA roguelite to PC shouldn't be a major challenge to Sony. However, many of Sony's existing PlayStation-to-PC ports have had their issues, especially at launch. Let's hope that Returnal's planned PC version has none of these issues.
