speaking in an episode of what is playstation – With a clip seen by Twitter user Zimms804 – Layden has explained why it decided to ship more specifications for the PC.
Layden shared that shortly before leaving Sony in 2019 to avoid burnout, “the idea of bringing Sony PlayStation content to the PC platform was something I was thinking about”.
Ultimately, the rationale behind bringing high-profile PlayStation exclusives — including Horizon Zero Dawn – Came from an effort to “bring more people into the world of our PlayStation”.

“The strategy we were developing when I was there was that we needed to go to those new customers, these could be new fans. We need to go where they are because they didn’t come to my house. So I have to go to his house now, and what’s the best way to get to his house?”
“Why not take one of our best-selling games that has already blown up the market, which is already 18 months, 24 months out… and bring it to the personal computer platform?”
“Hopefully, with this, people who are not currently inside PlayStation’s universe get a chance to experience what we are experiencing”, Layden explained.
Layden said the decision was even simpler because the PC was the “easiest” platform in which to take the game “the engineering challenge isn’t that great”, and the developers already have the right tools “to work with” at home.
