Cuphead isn’t the only game jumping ecosystems into a totally unexpected one, it seems like. Today during their GDC panel, Epic Games and Quantic Dream together announced that the latter’s three PlayStation exclusive games—Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, and yes, Detroit: Become Human as well—will all be coming to PC. And they will be coming via the Epic Games Store.
To be fair, Epic has directly worked on getting these games ported to PC with Quantic Dream, so this exclusivity arrangement makes far more sense than some of their other ones. That said, the exclusivity is not permanent—they will be exclusive to Epic’s store for one year. After that, we may see them launch on other storefronts.
The big news here, of course, is that Sony published games are launching on PC at all—other than the availability of PS Now on PC, Sony has largely kept its games exclusive to PlayStation hardware. While it’s unlikely that Sony’s first party games such as Horizon: Zero Dawn will come to PC (remember, Quantic Dream had already announced it will go multiplatform, albeit for future games), at least their other “second party” games, such as Bloodborne, now have a chance. Even if they are locked to Epic’s store.
