A PC PSN Launcher could be in the works, if a new job posting from Sony Interactive Entertainment is anything to go by. As spotted by DualShockers, Sony is looking for a Director of Project Management specifically for “PC gaming experiences” and one of the job holder’s duties will be to lead the integration of the PSN platform.
Potential PSN PC integration aligns with recent developments
Sony has repeatedly expressed its desire to go cross-platform in recent months, with a focus on PC and mobile. As Twitter user Zuby_Tech pointed out, this isn’t the first time a job posting has hinted at a mobile and PC launcher for the PSN. Last October, the company was looking for a UX Design Manager specifically for PlayStation’s “off-console experience” by designing mobile, web and PC applications to extend its content delivery platform. With Microsoft’s Game Pass being available on PC, it makes sense that Sony would want to bring the new PS Plus to PC as well.
