Ghost of Tsushima PC Port Release Date Leaks and Speculation

Ghost of Tsushima PC

As per insider sources, the Ghost of Tsushima PC port release date will be Q4 2023 or Q1 2024. There are a few reasons for this late date, but we can sum them up:

  • Release of PS5, & PlayStation Plus
  • The release pattern of previous Sony games on Windows
  • Upcoming Ghost of Tsushima Film
  • Upcoming Last of Us PC Port

Release of Ps5, & Playstation Plus

If the success of PlayStation consoles over Xbox has taught us something over the years, the features and games affect the player’s choice of device. It also matters where their friends are currently playing, but play players choose the PS consoles for their exclusive games.

Generations Sony Consoles Sold Microsoft Consoles Sold
6th Generation PlayStation 2 155 million Xbox 24 million
7th Generation PlayStation 3 87.4 million Xbox 360 84 million
8th Generation PlayStation 4 117.2 million Xbox One 58.5 million
9th Generation PlayStation 5 21.7 million Xbox Series X/S 12 million

With the release of Playstion Plus to take on the Xbox’s Game Pass service, Ghost of Tsushima is now an integral part of that service. So Sony will keep the game exclusive to lure more players to their devices over the competition with this title.

The Release Pattern of Previous Sony Games on Windows

As once stated by the head of Sony, best-selling PS titles are on their way to PC. And some of the original PS-only games took anywhere from 3-4 years to make it to PC.

Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection January 28, 2022 October 19, 2022
The Last of Us Part I September 2, 2022 March 3, 2023

Upcoming Ghost of Tsushima Film

Sony has announced that they will be making a film adaptation of Ghost of Tsushima with director Chad Stahelski, known for the John Wick film series. Sony will try to make Ghost of Tsushima more famous by bringing it to PC players. They missed this opportunity with the Uncharted (2022) film, as the Legacy of Thieves Collection got delayed. The film was not well received by the PS fans. So they will not take the same risk with the Ghost of Tsushima film.

The Last of Us television series’ first season will debut in 2023. But compared to 10 million copies of Ghost of Tsushima sold, Last of Us has 7 million on PS3, 10 million on PS4, and The Last of Us Part II has 10 million on PS4. This is apart from the player base on PS5, who either bought or played the games on PS Now. That’s almost thrice the number of players. So releasing the Ghost of Tsushima PC port is Sony’s best plan of action to introduce the world of Jin Sakai to new players. Here are the currently planned upcoming movies based on PS games:

  1. Gran Turismo (2023)
  2. Days Gone (TBA)
  3. Ghost of Tsushima (TBA)
  4. Gravity Rush (TBA)
  5. Jak and Daxter (TBA)

Upcoming Last of Us PC Port

As we mentioned in the above table, The Last of Us Part I is in development for PC and it’s releasing on March 3, 2023. And as Sony will not risk releasing both of the releases of their main games together (GoT & LoU), The Last of Us Part I will be given more priority anticipating more players coming from watching than the new television series. So there is a high probability the Ghost of Tsushima PC port will be pushed ahead to Q4 2023 or Q1 2024.
