Recently, a seemingly massive leak came from Nvidia’s own GeForce Now service, wherein any user could access a private database of games on the platform, including a list of Sony PlayStation titles that many thought was confirmation on more PlayStation games coming to PC. Unfortunately, Nvidia has come out to debunk the theories. 

Nvidia is aware of an unauthorized published game list, with both released and/or speculative titles, used only for internal tracking and testing,” Nvidia said in a statement to the press. “Inclusion on the list is neither confirmation nor an announcement of any game. Nvidia took immediate action to remove access to the list. No confidential game builds or personal information were exposed.

Used only for internal tracking and testing,” is the important bit, which explains why those games were on there and not necessarily confirmation that any of them are coming to PC. Most notably, games such as God of War, Ghost of TsushimaHalo 5 and more were all listed on the database, none of which are currently available on PC.

But, of course, Nvidia would never actually confirm whether any of them are really coming to PC though, so the reality is we’re back to where we were before in waiting for official confirmation from Sony themselves. Despite that though, God of War coming to PC makes a lot of sense, especially considering the sequel was just officially revealed and the leaked database even mentions a Steam ID (though it is “TBD”).

What do you think? Which of those leaked games would you most like to see come to PC? Do you think any of them are or will eventually? Let us know your thoughts!

Do you think God of War is the next PlayStation game coming to PC?

Eh with or without the leak, Sony has communicated time and time again that they're interested in bringing more of their titles to PC. GoW and Uncharted seem pretty likely imo, I think recently they even acquired a studio that specializes in PC ports.

nVidia is only saying that to basically soften the blow and do their due diligence to developers and publishers who partnered with them. Like, I don't know if God of War is exactly next one, but I got feeling that it will be here sooner or latter, considering how many PS4 exclusive games they are releasing on PC.


Still, I wouldn't take that leaked list as some major guideline of what is coming. A lot of those titles can be just for testing or even placeholders. Plus plans change, projects get canceled or changed into completely different thing,... Like one of more known example would be, if this was before first Assassin's Creed came out, this list could easily have next Prince of Persia game on it, which latter got scraped and out of it Assassin's Creed was born. Just as one example from the past. Still with PS4 exclusives, as current trend goes, we likely will see many coming to PC, so even if God of War for PC isn't being worked on right now, it could easily happen at some point. Or Sony could also at some point change their mind and stop porting to PC. Hopefully this won't happen and they definitely do reap benefits from PC ports, but with corporations you never know. So I would just take this list with bit of salt and take it as more of developer wishlist of what they want to do., hope for the best and still be prepared for the worst. Since development of anything, be it hardware or software, is bit like iceberg, what gets released is what we see floating on the sea, but there is much bigger part of it under water, where you got all the things they were trying to do and never got announced, got changed, removed,... This list is just a bit of a peak under there.

I don't believe what Nvidia said, cause PS exclusives are coming to PC one way or another, the only Company 343 Industries denies (one of the leaked games) Halo 5 isn't coming to PC
