According to a report from Ars Technica, the PC port of God of War 2018 is being worked on by a different studio than the ones who made the port for Horizon Zero Dawn. While the PC port for Horizon Zero Dawn was outsourced to Virtous, it appears that the God of War PC port is being worked on by a new Vancouver based studio called Jetpack Interactive. Jetpack Interactive has worked on the PC ports of a handful of games including Dark Souls and Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2.
Ars Technica also mentions that the port is being overseen by Santa Monica, the report reads as, “Sony representatives have confirmed to Ars that this port is being “overseen” by its creators at Sony Santa Monica while otherwise handled by Jetpack Interactive, a port-focused studio based in Vancouver, BC. As this studio has never worked with Sony, we can’t necessarily point to a track record that has us optimistic about this surpassing outsourced Sony PC ports like Horizon: Zero Dawn.”
God of War is among the four Playstation exclusives to be getting a PC port, starting with Days Gone earlier this year, Sony has been slowly putting out their line of exclusives on steam. With Horizon Zero Dawn following Days Gone, God of War in January and Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection which includes Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, sometime next year.
God of War is also one of Sony’s most prestigious IPs ever since the PlayStation era. Starting off as a hyper violent action hack and slash series, the series has experienced a huge change (for better or worse) with God of War 2018. God of War 2018 was universally acclaimed by critics for its mature story and engaging father and son dynamic between the main characters Kratos and his son Atreus. The game also received praise for its brutal and satisfying combat system.
