Ghost Of Tsushima PC Port Release Date And Requirements

Here's everything you need to know about Ghost of Tsushima's PC port release date with Requirements speculation.

Ghost of Tsushima became one of the most well-received games in the world by both critics & users. It also managed to sell almost 10 million copies this year. Being one of the fastest-selling games published by SIE, many PC players are awaiting a port release on Windows. So today, let’s see what we know about the Ghost of Tsushima PC port‘s release date with minimum & recommended PC requirements.

Ghost of Tsushima PC Port Requirements

Ghost of Tsushima PC Port Release Date

Update: Ghost of Tsushima is now out for PC on Steam and Epic Games Store. It got released on May 16, 2024.

As per insider sources, the Ghost of Tsushima PC port release date will be Q4 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

So, when can we expect to see a Ghost of Tsushima PC port? Based on the available evidence, it seems unlikely that the game will be released on PC in late 2023. Sony has typically released its PC ports around a few years after the initial PlayStation release, so a Q4 2024 release date would be consistent with this trend.

Of course, it’s also possible that Sony could release the Ghost of Tsushima PC port earlier than Q4 2024. For example, if the game is already in a late stage of development, Sony could release it in Q2 or Q3 2024. However, given that Sony has yet to announce the game, a Q4 2024 release date seems more likely.

Overall, the evidence suggests that a Ghost of Tsushima PC port is in development and will likely be released in late 2024. Fans of the game can expect to hear more from Sony in the coming months.

Release of PS5 and PlayStation Plus

PlayStation consoles have been more successful than Xbox consoles for years, teaching us that features and games are the most important factors in players’ choices. While where friends play matters, players ultimately choose PlayStation consoles for their exclusive games.

GenerationsSonyConsoles SoldMicrosoftConsoles Sold
6th GenerationPlayStation 2155 millionXbox24 million
7th GenerationPlayStation 387.4 millionXbox 36084 million
8th GenerationPlayStation 4117.2 millionXbox One58.5 million
9th GenerationPlayStation 541.7 millionXbox Series X/S21 million

With the launch of PlayStation Plus to compete with Xbox’s Game Pass service, Ghost of Tsushima has become an integral part of Sony’s strategy to lure more players to their devices. It is, therefore, unsurprising that the PC port of Ghost of Tsushima has been delayed for so long, as Sony is prioritizing PlayStation 5 sales.

The Release Pattern of Previous Sony Games on Windows

As the head of Sony once stated, best-selling PS titles are on their way to PC. Some PlayStation-exclusive games have taken 3-4 years to be ported to PC.

Upcoming Ghost of Tsushima Film

Sony has announced that it will produce a film adaptation of Ghost of Tsushima, directed by Chad Stahelski, known for the John Wick franchise. Sony is seeking to expand Ghost of Tsushima’s reach by bringing it to PC gamers, a missed opportunity with the Uncharted film, which was released after the Legacy of Thieves Collection was delayed. PlayStation fans poorly received the Uncharted film, so Sony is unlikely to take the same risk with the Ghost of Tsushima film.

  • This article was originally written before the release of The Last of Us Part I for PC, so the information below reflects the state of the article at that time.

The Last of Us television series will premiere in 2023, but Ghost of Tsushima has sold more copies than The Last of Us on PS3 and PS4 combined, with over 10 million copies sold. This is in addition to the player base on PS5, who can either buy or play the game on PS Now. That’s almost three times the number of players who have played The Last of Us. Therefore, releasing a PC port of Ghost of Tsushima is Sony’s best way 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)

Last of Us PC Port

The Last of Us Part I for PC and released on March 28, 2023. To avoid releasing two major titles simultaneously (Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us), Sony will likely prioritize The Last of Us Part I, as it is expected to attract more players than the new television series.
