Yesterday, there was a lot of excitement among PC gamers about the planned release dates for the PC versions of Demon's Souls and Ghost of Tsushima. Unfortunately, these reports are definitely not true.
- It all started with a well-known tipster, The Snitch, according to whom Sony intends to release a PC port of one of the AAA games from PlayStation consoles in July.
- This rumor is credible, but using it a bait, someone released a graphic (available below) that allegedly gives the release dates of the PC versions of two games. Demon's Souls would allegedly be released on PC on July 29, while Ghost of Tsushima on October 11.
The image seems convincing at first glance, but the longer one examines it, the more obvious it becomes that this is just the creation of some creative yet poorly informed fan.
- First of all, it incorrectly stated the U.S. branch of Sony Interactive Entertainment as the owner of the rights to Demon's Souls, while in fact it is owned by the Japanese branch of the company.
- Second, the graphic also mentions the "Ghost of Tsushima: Director's Cut" trademark, which is not registered anywhere (Sony has only registered "Ghost of Tsushima" itself).
- Third, July 29 is a Saturday, and no major publisher releases its games on such a day of the week.
The graphics and the dates on them are therefore false, but the mere fact that both games are heading for PC is virtually certain. Demon's Souls and Ghost of Tsushima after all, they appeared in the famous GeForce Now database leak. Most of the games listed there have already been announced for PC.
On top of that, Sony has been porting a ton of its productions to PC for some time, and there is no reason to assume that Demon's Souls and Ghost of Tsushima will be exceptions.
