Is MLB The Show 21 coming to PC?

For years MLB The Show has been a PlayStation exclusive, but the latest details about the game reveal that it will be coming to other platforms in 2021. The announcement for San Diego Studio's MLB The Show 21 included available pre-order ability for both the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, but indicated nothing about the release of the game on PC.

"We’re excited to share that, with our announced extension with the MLB® and MLB Players, MLB The Show 21 will be available for players on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S" said Ramone Russel, Product Development and Brand Strategist at San Diego Studio. "This is a very exciting moment for all of us as the storied franchise will be accessible to more gamers than before. We would like to thank everyone at PlayStation, Xbox, Major League Baseball, Major League Baseball Players Association, and the San Diego Studio for working diligently to bring MLB The Show to more users."

Is MLB The Show 21 Coming to PC?

The short answer is no, MLB The Show 21 will not be available to PC players. For the time being, it looks like this is the official position of Sony. While PC players may be upset that they won't be able to play the game on their set up, the news of MLB The Show 21 being released on the Xbox family of consoles is a welcomed surprise.

Even better, cross-play and progression will be available for the game. PlayStation players will have the option of an upgrade path from current generation to next-gen, but only if they purchase the digital or digital deluxe edition of the game. MLB The Show 21 is to release April 20, 2021.
