Sony is Hiring a ‘Senior Director for PC Planning and Strategy’

Sony formed a PlayStation PC Publishing Seal in 2021, and brought many previously PlayStation exclusive games to PC, with Death Stranding, Horizon Zero Dawn, and God of War among them. (Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection will be released later this year.) This ongoing experiment has clearly done the company good, and the latest sign of that is a job listing for a senior director of PC planning and strategy on PlayStation Global.

If you feared Sony’s adventure with PC gaming would be short-lived, this listing is further evidence that it’s continuing for the long haul. Whoever gets the role “will be responsible for the strategy and business activity in Global Channel sales and will provide a single, streamlined business and PC sales growth plan for the hub and territory teams to implement.” I hope this plan needs to be something a little more complicated than “put Bloodborne on PC now.”

Bringing already popular games to the PC is a strategy that has worked for Sony so far. God of War was Sony’s biggest PC releasebut Horizon Zero Dawn also sold well and Days Gone respectably. There are plenty of other recent big-budget action games on the console still waiting to be ported – honestly, Bloodborne can wait if it means getting Spider-Man into modders’ hands sooner – but presumably Sony’s plans will go beyond that. .

Simultaneous releases of future games would be an obvious next step once the accumulation of prestige exclusives has been worked out. The question is, would new games be released on Steam, Epic, or a possible PlayStation launcher? A sort of PSN for PC, maybe with cross-save and shared trophies? Given that Bethesda just announced the shutdown date of its launchermaybe Sony’s new senior director of PC planning and strategy will read what’s written on the wall there.
