Sony may be working on its own PC game launcher

Sony has been wading through the fresh waters of PC gaming with real intent over the past few years with some pretty great ports of previously PlayStation-exclusive hits including Horizon Zero Dawn, God of War and, soon, Uncharted. He may be preparing to go further with his own exclusive game launcher: VGC (opens in a new tab) reports that references to a “PlayStation PC launcher” have been found in the files for the recently released PC version of Marvel’s Spider-Man.

Currently, Sony’s PC versions are going where you’d expect: Steam and the Epic Games Store. But the reference to a separate PlayStation launcher opens up the possibility that Sony could follow in the footsteps of Activision and Bethesda by offering its games in its own walled garden. Since PlayStation’s games are already on Steam, I assume Sony will introduce a mid-range launcher similar to Ubisoft’s Ubisoft Connect, which contains a separate user profile and appears each time you launch one of its games from Steam or Epic.
