Spider-Man PC now makes mention of a PlayStation PC launcher

Spider-Man PC now makes mention of a "PlayStation PC launcher."
Following in the footsteps of Activision Blizzard, Ubisoft, and Rockstar, Sony may soon release its own launcher for its PC games.

This comes after it was learned that Sony might be preparing to make PlayStation Network compatibility available for its PC titles. The references to the PlayStation PC launcher have been verified by Source.

Although Marvel's Spider-Man and all other PlayStation Studios PC games do not presently support PSN account connectivity, Spider-files Man's frequently mention "PSNAccountLinked" and "PSNLinkingEntitlements."

Sony has only ever released PC games on Steam and the Epic Game Store. Despite having a PlayStation PC brand, it is typically used to refer to all PC rereleases as a whole rather than as a launcher.

These references could imply that a PC-specific version of the PlayStation Store is on the way. This could potentially result in cross-purchasing for games on the PS5 and PC, especially in light of the allusions to account integration.

It's improbable that the first party will restrict the distribution of their games to this launcher. Microsoft makes its games available on Steam in addition to its own shop.

However, certain publishers, such as Rockstar, require a reduced version of the launcher client to remain running as a way of authentication, even when starting a game from Steam.

Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, said that PlayStation intended to port "a entire slate" of games to PC last year.

Sony's sixth PC game, Spider-Man Remastered, was made available last week. Later in the year, PC versions of Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection and Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be released.
