As Sony's commitment to PC gaming grows, it may be stepping up its efforts. There are references to a PlayStation PC launcher in Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered, which was recently ported to the PlayStation 4.

The online gaming publication Video Game Chronicle reported on Tuesday that it discovered references to a PlayStation PC launcher in the game's files that were found within.

The possibility of Sony creating its PC launcher for its games might be implied by this. Other files with names such as 'PSNAccountLinked' and 'PSNAccountLinked1' have been discovered and verified by VGC as well 

The PSN can, however, be linked with other PC ports like Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered and other PC ports such as God of War, as many PC ports can be linked to the PSN. 

A look at the files found in the former game may suggest that players in the future may be able to link their PC accounts to their PSN accounts in the future.

The PlayStation games are currently available for PC download and play through the Epic Games store and Steam, each of which has its launcher that allows you to play the games on a PC.

As well as launching its PlayStation PC launcher, Sony may not automatically pull all of its games from platforms like Steam, if it decides to do so. 

As far as we know, Microsoft still offers Xbox games on Steam even though they're available through Game Pass. Also, Rockstar Games has a launcher that needs to work together with Steam to launch any of its titles.

The fact that Sony is soon going to release more PlayStation games for PC could be a sign that Sony will be integrating the PSN linking functionality and bringing a PlayStation PC launcher to the market.

As with other companies such as Ubisoft, EA, and others, Ubisoft would be following in the footsteps of such companies as EA and others.
