It looks like PC gamers really want this game on their platform, and why wouldn’t they? It’s one of the most hardcore and unforgiving games we’ve seen this gen, and it’s quite a perfect fit for the platform. Although, Namco hasn’t shown considerable interest in doing so, though.
The petition for the said port has neared 40k signatures, that’s right. Even if the game sells 150k-200k on the PC, it should be quite a profitable move for Namco Bandai. But will it? That’s where Steam comes into play.
This is what the petition says:
Port of this game has a high chance of being extremely successful for From Software and Namco Bandai. Given the sales of games such as The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim and The Witcher, there is a large market for games like this. PC gamers love unforgiving, hardcore games.
A port may also mean that the area’s in the game, such as Blighttown, won’t suffer from slowdown. An online oriented video game is also perfect for the capabilities of a PC. Steam would also be suitable venue provided the game is sold at a reasonable price for a late port. Steamworks could provide a strong and easy to use online infrastructure.
