Sony has been bringing more and more of its exclusive PlayStation games to PC in recent years. So when can we expect the smash-hit God of War Ragnarok to make the leap?

While Sony remains tight-lipped, Reliable PlayStation leaker @billbil-kun writing for Dealabs Magazine confirmed that God of War Ragnarok will be the next PlayStation exclusive to be ported on PC.

According to them, this PC port will be announced somewhere in May 2024 but they remain doubtful about the potential release date.

Last month, another reputable leaker, @Silknigth, also repeated the same information, suggesting a potential release date in the first quarter of 2025, or even earlier.

Clues from Job Listings and Earnings Calls

Late last year, Sony posted a job listing seeking a developer to join the team working on bringing their “emblematic IP” to PC.

While the specific game wasn’t mentioned, many speculated that it could be related to the God of War franchise.

Additionally, during Sony’s latest earnings call, Chairman Hiroki Totoki expressed the company’s desire to bring more first-party games to PC, further fueling speculation about a potential God of War: Ragnarok PC port.

Collaboration with Jetpack Interactive

Adding more fuel to the fire is a recent LinkedIn post from Jetpack Interactive, a Vancouver-based studio with a history of collaborating with Sony’s Santa Monica Studio on the God of War franchise.

The post mentions their ongoing work with Sony Santa Monica, leading to speculation that they could be assisting with either the God of War: Ragnarok PC port or a remastered version of the original God of War trilogy for PC.

More PC Ports are Coming

A few more big Sony first-party titles are slated for PC ports in 2024 and 2025:

  • Ghost of Tsushima Director cut confirmed (now available)
  • Until Dawn (rumored for late 2024)
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 (likely in 2025)
  • Horizon Forbidden West (now available)
  • The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered

Sony’s Release Strategy for PC Ports

Based on Sony’s previous PC port (2 years of release gap), it’s likely that the company will wait until all post-launch content and expansions completed for God of War: Ragnarok has been rolled out on the PlayStation 5 before bringing the game to PC.

This strategy allows Sony to maximize sales on the console platform first, and then offer a complete experience to PC players.

According to various rumors, the PC port will be announced in the upcoming PlayStation Showcase possibly taking place in May 2024 while several sources also deny it.
