You can expect to see more Sega games on PC after a strong sales of Persona 4: Golden on Steam. The company confirmed in their latest investor call that they will aggressively promote the porting of their titles to Steam and other platforms.

As you may know, Sega and Atlus published Persona 4: Golden, a PlayStation Vita title from 2012 to PC in June this year and it is safe to say that the port has been a massive success for the developer and publisher. 

SEGA recently said that "repeat sales" of their games catalogue have skyrocketed in March in April this year, with Steam being the key platform during that time. The sales boost was recorded specifically in Europe and the US, with consumers purchasing digital games during the lockdown. 

One of these games is the already mentioned Persona 4: Golden with sales that were significantly higher than the publisher initially expected. PC players will be very happy to hear that the success of this port has influenced SEGA's strategy for future releases.

"Going forward, we intend to aggressively promote the porting of previously launched titles to Steam and other new platforms," SEGA said. ."Under such direction, we would like to take multi-platform rollout in the account and prepare the PC version and others from the start."

Could this mean that every future SEGA game will be coming to PC? Well, it is hard to say, but it sounds like the publisher will start porting their games to other platforms more frequently from now on. Hopefully, Persona 5 Royale is the next one to arrive on Steam.
