Bethesda had two games on last night's PlayStation 5 games reveal but what the presentation didn't mention is that they're not exactly PlayStation exclusives.

Now, we may be looking at timed exclusives here, but neither Deatloop's nor Ghostwire: Tokyo's descriptions suggest that PC launch will be separate from PlayStation 5. 

"Deathloop is an innovative first-person shooter launching exclusively for PlayStation 5 and PC from Arkane Lyon, the award-winning studio behind the critically acclaimed Dishonored franchise. Launching Holiday 2020", says the video description from the above trailer.

Ghostwire: Tokyo's video description doesn't say much, but Bethesda's content manager Anne Lewis spilt the beans in a post on PlayStation Blog. 

"From Shinji Mikami and the team at Tango Gameworks comes Ghostwire: Tokyo, a next-gen action-adventure game coming to consoles exclusively for PlayStation 5 in 2021. Ghostwire: Tokyo will also be launching on PC", she wrote. 

Of course, this doesn't take away from the titles, unless you're the kind of fan who considers exclusivity to be an actual factor in adding value to a game. You know, like the guy who had Horizon: Zero Dawn's producer tweet , "We made a game, you enjoyed it. Now some more people get to enjoy it. And somehow that takes away from YOUR enjoyment?!

We at AltChar happen to be a mixed platform crowd so we definitely won't say no to giving both Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo a go on any platform available - if they end up playing as exquisitely as they look on the trailers, the platform will hardly matter. 

In any case, PlayStation 5 shouldn't be lacking in games, as Sony's CEO Jim Ryan said many more are in development .
