Sony's current console generation has seen quite a few PlayStation 4 exclusives being ported to PC and we suppose it was only a matter of time before someone asked about God of War. The game's director Cory Barlog seems interested though.

Before anyone jumps at conclusions, this was not a dig at Hideo Kojima or anything malicious, but if you knew Barlog you'd know that's not really his style. 

His comments were actually in response to Polygon's piece on Death Stranding, which was pondering whether the game's non-exclusivity matters. "Not in the least", he tweeted, and you'd really have to be in love with Sony's rapidly diminishing aura of exclusivity to think otherwise. 

Death Stranding's PlayStation 4 launch is five days from today and by the time the PC version rolls out, which is the second quarter of 2020, we will have heard everything we have to hear. Yes, much like Red Dead Redemption 2, which also launches in a few days. 

When a fan remarked how it's perhaps time for God of War to make its way to PC, Barlog responded, "You know, I would love that. It is, sadly, a decision far above my paygrade. As is proven on a daily basis, I am no Kojima."

Now, it's pretty impressive that Sony managed to keep the walls up around PlayStation consoles this far, but once Fortnite broke through, the trickle has grown into a stream of cross-play titles on the market. God of War certainly deserves to be launched on anything and everything, for the game's and the team's sake. 

Even ignoring the most obvious point, which is - hey, it's free money - there's absolutely no reason why God of War should be kept platform-specific, when it can do more for Sony and itself by being available to everyone.
