Over the past few years, Sony Interactive Entertainment has been actively engaged in porting and publishing some of its first-party PS4 exclusives onto the PC platform.
Major AAA titles such as Death Stranding (Kojima Productions, 2020), Horizon Zero Dawn (Guerrilla Games, 2020), Days Gone (Bend Studio, 2021), and the critically acclaimed God of War (Santa Monica Studio, 2022) were able to grab the attention of non-console gamers and have since been embraced by the PC Gaming Community at large.
With that said, one of the most highly anticipated upcoming games this year happens to be the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection. Since its announcement and arrival on the current-gen PS5, several speculations surrounding the PC release date have been making rounds on the Internet every now and then.
Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection Expected Release Date on PC
Although the PS5 version of Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection received significant upgrades in the Resolution and Frame-Rate department, the PC version has had little to no information regarding its System Requirements and Launch Date.
Fortunately, a new leak on Steam Database suggests that both Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy could possibly arrive in Q4 of 2022, giving long-awaited fans of this franchise a glimmer of hope.
As per the recent listing on Steam Database, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection had an initial release date of October 19th but was soon changed to a placeholder date of December 30th, 2022.
While the placeholder date isn’t official by any means, the modifications made to this listing could end up being confirmed by the publisher or developer as the actual launch date for this title in the near future.
Nevertheless, it is disappointing for gamers to see yet another delay as the previous Steam Database listing revealed the expected release date for Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection to be on July 15th.
Furthermore, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered (Insomniac Games, 2022) which was announced just 3 weeks earlier at the PlayStation State of Play Event has already received an official launch date on August 12th, making it the fastest PS4 exclusive to arrive on PC.
Based on these facts, it is evident that the aforementioned delay might be subjected to further optimization of the PC port from the developer’s side.
To prevent any porting pitfall from ruining the overall appeal of both of these games, the entire Development Team at Naughty Dog must be keen on the aspects of performance and stability, thereby making it readily accessible on a wide variety of PC Hardware.
No one from the PC Master Race is willing to go through yet another ‘overpromised’ and ‘underdelivered’ AAA title, right?
