God of War director claims studios pushed to bring their games to PC
Sony’s PC strategy has changed in recent months. After the launch of Horizon Forbidden West came Days Gone, while now it is God of War’s turn. With Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection on the horizon, Game Informer asked Cory Barlog, director of the Kratos adventure, how the idea of porting the titles to PC came about. The creative has pointed out that it was the pressure of the developers that make up PlayStation Studios that made the balance tip in that direction.
“I think it was the studies as a whole that said it was a very good idea and that we should look at it. Eventually, I think that turning point was reached ”, reflects Barlog in the interview. In his own words, they sent so many suggestions in that sense that in the end they gave in. “It is a process. We are still investigating as individual studies and as a company the way to do this, as well as the process and the strategy that we are going to follow ”.
