Will Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart get a PC port?

Ratchet & Clank, which is currently only available on PlayStation 5, may appear on PC soon.

It is rare that a Sony game is only available on PlayStation 5. For example, Demon’s Souls Remake like this one, or Destruction AllStars too. This includes Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, but Sony is rumored to be bringing this to PC as well. Nixxes, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s PC port studio, is one job advertisement post, which might suspiciously refer to a fur-and-bot computer outing.

Nixxes is looking for a UX/UI Responsible Person who will help implement and improve the AAA PC gaming interface experience, but among the pluses we can also find knowledge of coherent middleware. This is suspicious, as among the PlayStation exclusive titles only Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart uses it (other games that use it: Nex Machina, Crackdown 3, and Microsoft Flight Simulator).

According to the job advertisement, knowledge of C++, computer implementation and extension of game systems is also expected in order to improve the user interface experience, and a good understanding of the performance and complexity of the code. In accordance with job offer, the successful applicant will work full time for Nixxes and work with other team members to safeguard project quality and assist other engineers as needed.

Nixxes wouldn’t be the first to work on a PC port of a game originally developed by Insomniac Games, as that studio was behind ports of Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Both were well received on PC, and ray tracing support was implemented, for example, in Texts. Since Herman Hulst, the head of PlayStation Studios, previously said that it would be at least a year before a PlayStation 5 game appears on PC, the new Ratchet & Clank game falls within that time frame, being a 2021 game.

All of this isn’t official yet, but we’d welcome a PC port. Then the previous parts must also be carried over, right?
