Horizon Zero Dawn is coming to PC in just a couple of months, according to a popular Russian YouTuber, Anton Logvinov. Meanwhile, not everyone is convinced his claims are right, since it's a first party Sony title.

Anton Logvinov came out with a bombshell statement when he announced that Sony and Guerrilla Games are looking at February 2020 release for the PC version of Horizon: Zero Dawn.

According to Logvinov, this may be an attempt to increase Horizon: Zero Dawn fan base ahead of the sequel and PlayStation 5 releases. From a business standpoint, this would make sense - if some PC-only players were to like HZD enough, it could drive them to become future PlayStation players. Therefore, this port would serve an initiative to increase PlayStation player base and push the initial sales of PS5 in one fell swoop.

While Sony-backed Death Stranding has already been announced for PC in 2020, it is not a first party title. It was still made by Kojima Productions. On the other hand, it is bringing the Decima engine to PC, which could make porting easier for Sony's titles, should they decide to share them with another platform.

On the other hand, it would also mean opening the walled garden Sony cultivated all these years. Since HZD is one of their first party singleplayer games, Sony didn't get any negative feedback. There was no player base separation players didn't fault them for making their own products to promote their own platform. 

However, making their previously exclusive titles not-so-exclusive could mean PS4/5 owners would perceive the platform to have less value.

This is just one of the reasons why people are doubting the validity of Logvinov's claims but if he is right, an official announcement should be coming soon.
