Fresh off of winning a trio of BAFTAs yesterday evening, it's fair to say Everybody's Gone to the Rapture is riding high on success. The PlayStation 4 exclusive earned rave reviews when it originally launched last year, and there's a PC port due imminently. Excitingly it's actually being published by Sony, so there's even a slight possibility of more first-party titles making the jump. 
It’s been the worst kept secret since Microsoft’s awkward fumbling of the Rise of the Tomb Raider exclusivity, but The Chinese Room has at long last confirmed Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is coming to PC.
Bang in line with what we heard back in January when it cropped up in the Steam database, a recent AMD driver update looks to have all but confirmed the existence of Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture on PC. Currently a PlayStation 4 exclusive developed by The Chinese Room and Sony Santa Monica, with publishing duties handled by Sony themselves, it now looks as if it’s heading PC-wards.
When I first heard this a few months back I initially wrote it off as piffle, but a recent change to the Steam DataBase has indicated there’s definitely more to this than I originally thought. What am I talking about? Well, PlayStation 4 exclusive Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture may not be as exclusive as we’d been led to believe, appearing in the SteamDB along with a newly uploaded banner image.
The Chinese Room, the studio behind Dear Esther and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, is readying the PlayStation 4-exclusive Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture for release in the next few weeks. An apocalyptic event has rained down on a quaint English village, where not a soul remains, and it's up to the player deduce just what happened. To celebrate the overwhelming sense of impending doom, the studio has shared a launch trailer which creates many more questions than it answers.
The Chinese Room has revealed PlayStation 4 exclusive Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture will be descending to Earth on August 11th. The exploratory first-person adventure is set 31 years in the past, within a quaint English village. The twist? The world has ended.
The Chinese Room’s upcoming apocalyptic title Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture didn’t feature much in Sony’s main E3 presentation, in spite of its status as a PS4 exclusive. However, co-director Jessica Curry made up for the radio silence on the PlayStation blog last night, filling us in on what the studio hoped to achieve with the title.
