PlayStation 4 exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn is reportedly coming to PC sometime in 2020, according to a report by Kotaku. The title will be available on Steam and the Epic Games Store.

The gaming community is largely divided over the topic of exclusives. Some say that they help companies recover the massive R&D cost that goes into developing a console, while others state that it is anti-competitive, as it restricts players to a platform. Sony, in particular, has funded a plethora of studios to develop games for its console. One has to purchase a PlayStation to play genre-defying titles such as Uncharted, The Last of Us and Bloodborne. Another critically-acclaimed game, Horizon: Zero Dawn, is also exclusive to the PlayStation 4.

A report now tells us that the game may make its way to PC sometime this year. Three anonymous sources familiar with the matter told Jason Schreier of Kotaku that Horizon: Zero Dawn will be available on Steam and the Epic Games Store sometime in 2020. It is a welcome move, but hardly surprising, considering that Death Stranding is coming to PC this summer too. Both titles are based on the same Decima engine, so porting Horizon: Zero Dawn to PC shouldn't be much of a hassle.

Sony has been a lot more liberal with its exclusives ever since Microsoft opened up their Halo and Gears of War franchises. Detroit: Become Human and Beyond Two Souls were two PlayStation exclusives that made their way to PC in 2019. Does this mean that we'll play God of War and Marvel: Spiderman on Steam? Probably not. Just because Sony is willing to let a few games go doesn't mean that it'll relinquish control of what can best be described as it's flagship titles.

I've been an avid PC gamer since the age of 8. My passion for gaming eventually pushed me towards general tech, and I've been a stereotypical 'nerd' ever since. I have a degree in mechanical engineering and have worked in the manufacturing industry. When I'm not writing news on Notebookcheck, you can find me playing or watching an intense match of DOTA 2
