A label of “exclusive to PlayStation 5 on consoles” had set off alarms.
Upgrade: The rumor that Ratchet & Clank Drift Apart could reach PC has reached the ears of Insomniac Games, authors of the video game, who have chosen to clarify the controversy in a very particular way. On Twitter, a company representative shares a post with the suspicious “corrected” (clarified, rather) original text that makes it very clear that it is a PlayStation 5 exclusive. This time, without misinterpretation.
Original news: Sony has shared a new trailer from Ratchet and Clank: A Dimension Apart focused on the weapons and tools available to our furry protagonist to fight and move around the environment. Considering that the game hits stores next month, that’s not unusual. What has caught the attention of many is a clue that appears at the end of the video that points to a possible launch on PC.
“PlayStation 5 console exclusive“Reads the final sequence of the video in its English version. There are a couple of possible translations for this:” exclusive to the PlayStation 5 console “, which is a bit redundant because it is clear that PS5 is a console, and” exclusive to PlayStation 5 on consoles. “That last possibility has triggered the alarms because it implies that although the game does not reach Xbox, at least does not close the doors to PC.
The Spanish version of the trailer is more concise with the launch pads And what are the chances of this happening? There are discordant opinions. On the one hand, it is clear that Sony is suspicious of its first-party productions. The new Ratchet & Clank is only planned for its next generation console, and it is clear that if there are plans to bring it to Steam, that will not be announced until later. an agreed term. On the other, that tight control of exclusivities is beginning to be a little less worrisome.
Throughout the last few years, Sony has opened more and more to the PC world. We have Death Stranding on Steam, which was technically from a third-party studio, but also Horizon: Zero Dawn, which is signed by Guerrilla, and this week the very Days Gone from Bend Studio arrives on the Valve platform. As a reminder, during that distant presentation of PS5 games it was hinted that the remake of Demon’s Souls and Final Fantasy XVI would arrive on PC, although both were immediately rectified. A recurring mistake, it seems to be.
Ratchet and Clank: A Dimension Apart will be available on PS5 on 11th of June. The Spanish version of its new trailer closes in a much more concise: “exclusively for PlayStation 5” followed by “images captured on PS5” which, again, is redundant. You can see it in 4K under these lines. If you don’t know how the game is, our colleague Alejandro Pascual tells you.
