“The PC version of Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut includes the full game, the Iki Island expansion, and the cooperative online multiplayer Legends mode,” wrote Huijbregts.

Apparently, the project has been in development for over a year. As Nixxes has always done with PlayStation exclusives, their PC port usually goes beyond graphics updates to making the game utilize all the potentials of PC. In the case of Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut, it will have unlocked frame rates and “a variety of graphics settings and presets, and customizable mouse and keyboard controls”.

Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut will launch on May 16

Sony’s interim CEO Hiroki Totoki mentioned one of the company’s financial success strategies for its games division in the latest earnings call. He said the company would be bringing more PlayStation exclusives to rival platforms. Therefore, in the coming years, we will likely see more PlayStation exclusives port to PC—and who knows, even Xbox.

In a February Business update, Xbox boss Phil Spencer also revealed that Xbox was sending 4 of their platform exclusives to PC. During the podcast, he also mentioned that in the future platform exclusivity will become rarer.

While making games exclusively for one platform can provide the incentive for gamers to purchase consoles, they also hurt sales numbers for the company. The more platforms that a game is available on, the greater its potential audience pool will be.
