Gaming is one of the few things people can enjoy on different mediums; you can enjoy games on consoles, PC, or even in the arcades. There aren’t many limitations to that, but there is a limitation to playing your favourite games on multiple platforms.
Sometimes, that one game you love is only available on PC or console or cannot be enjoyed elsewhere if you transition. But if your favourite games are Returnal or Sackboy, you shouldn’t consider yourself unlucky because they will be coming to PC.
Now, we don’t say these words unless they are confirmed, but unfortunately for Sony, these are some of their worst-kept secrets. How so? Because the SteamDB listing for Returnal and Sackboy is already there, and many insiders, not to mention some slip-ups, have confirmed that.
About the Games
Returnal is a 3rd-person roguelike shooting game developed by Housemarque and published by Sony. The game was released in 2021 for PlayStation 5, and since then, no announcement has been made for the PC release.
The story of Returnal follows an astronaut, Selene Vassos, who lands on Atropos in search of “White Shadow”. In a series of tragic events, she finds herself trapped in a time loop. The game found vast success at the time of release for many game elements done stunningly. It even won some awards, including Best Game at the 18th British Academy Games Awards.
Sackboy: A Big Adventure was developed by Sumo Digital and published by Sony in 2020 for PlayStation 4 & 5. The game follows Sackboy and features some exciting 3D platforming as an upgrade to the 2.5D in the previous series. The game was announced at the PS5 reveal event and also found great success.
An image has surfaced on Reddit that further adds credibility to the previous leaks regarding both games coming to PC/Steam Deck.
Even though they look almost done, there is still no sign of an announcement, but it might be just around the corner.
Sackboy will have some enhancements in the PC version in comparison to PS5.
The Previous Leaks
A few months ago, some images started spreading, and they showed what the main menu looks like for both games on PC. Although it looked credible, there weren’t many to confirm whether the images were authentic. Still, the SteamDB listing confirmed that they would be coming to PC, but nothing on the images.
The New Images
The credibility of the old images is still not 100%, but these are just here for the context. The new images were spotted by our team at TopTierList and were uploaded on Reddit by user u/Joker28CR. He did not upload these images, as they were originally posted on a separate thread, but the information is here, so don’t worry.
The font and design of older pictures are similar to the new ones, so that is how it should look on release. In addition, the post mentioned that the PC version of Sackboy will have better enhancements as compared to the PS5. Still, there is no confirmation whether it will have a stutter due to the UE4 Shader Compilation issue.
After all these leaks, all we can do is wait for Sony to announce this finally. It is a big surprise why it is still kept so secret, but we will find out sooner or later. Until then, which game are you most excited to experience on PC and why? Let us know your thoughts below, and we will discuss them with you!
