Horizon Zero Dawn, is officially no longer a Sony PlayStation exclusive. This summer PC gamers will be able to hunt and kill robot dinosaurs. Hermen Hulst, head of Sony Worldwide Studios confirmed the news in the PlayStation Blog.
“Yes, I can confirm that Horizon Zero Dawn is coming to PC this summer…. There will be more information coming from Guerrilla, from the new studio directors [Michiel van der Leeuw, JB van Beek, and Angie Smets] pretty soon.
… I think it’s important that we stay open to new ideas of how to introduce more people to PlayStation, and show people maybe what they’ve been missing out on.
… And to maybe put a few minds at ease, releasing one first-party AAA title to PC doesn’t necessarily mean that every game now will come to PC. In my mind, Horizon Zero Dawn was just a great fit in this particular instance. We don’t have plans for day and date [PC releases], and we remain 100% committed to dedicated hardware.”

Horizon Zero Dawn is a great and visually stunning game. Many considered it one of the most graphically impressive titles on the PS4. Now, PC gamers will get to gloat that it looks even better on their expensive souped up PC rigs.
When Bungie announced that Destiny 2 would be featuring cross save on every platform under the sun (even PS4), a lot of people most have lost their shit and assumed that meant cross-play too.
I mean, I didn’t, because I’m not stupid. Cross save and cross-play mean two totally different things, right? RIGHT!?!
I’m assuming that most people agree with this, as I’m a believer that people are generally smart. However, enough dimwits must have thought otherwise, so Bungie had to take to their boards and set things straight.
Q: Will Destiny 2 support cross-play matchmaking between different platforms? A: No. Each platform will have its own matchmaking pool.
Got it! But surely there will be cross-play on the Stadia.
Q: Will Stadia feature cross-play with Steam or other platforms? A: Stadia is its own ecosystem, just like current existing platforms. Stadia players will only be able to play with other Stadia players.
If Kotaku‘s sources are to be believed, they got the drop on the Google Stadia launch announcement planned for tomorrow and they are going to waste Google’s flavor.
If the “little birds” are to be believed, Google will announce tomorrow, along with price and launch date of the Stadia, that Destiny 2 is coming to the new streaming platform.
The informants also claim that cross-save functionality for Xbox One and PC will be enabled for the Google Stadia. So if you’re on a PC or an Xbox One, you can transfer your Destiny 2 progress over to the Stadia.
No news on the PS4 front, but given Sony’s past track record when it comes to playing nice “cross platform,” they’re probably not on board. They’ll have a lame excuse, like to protect the children, or some other lame ass bullshit.
Destiny 2 is probably a good title for the Google Stadia. If you think about it, Destiny 2 is not a twitch shooter, so any possible lag from streaming, can be hidden. Of course, if you’re playing in the Crucible, lag can be controller spiking infuriating.
We’ll see tomorrow, June 6 at 12:00 PM EST, when Google spills the beans.
