A listing for Returnal in the recent Nvidia leak hints at more PlayStation PC ports coming soon.

A huge database leak for Nvidia GeForce Now has revealed a list of possible unannounced games that could be making their way out into the open. Many of the games listed were PC ports for some of PlayStations exclusive titles, including Housemarque's Returnal.

Returnal, a third-person roguelike shooter, was released as a PlayStation 5 exclusive back in April 2021. The game makes use of psychological horror elements in a science fiction setting where main character Selene Vassos is caught in a time loop. With each death, players are resurrected back into a bizarre and hostile alien world. The game has been positively received by fans and critics alike, citing that its challenging difficulty makes for rewarding combat.

Is Returnal Coming to PC?

Many of PlayStation's exclusives have made their way to PC eventually, such as Horizon Zero Dawn and Death Stranding, so it wouldn't be beyond the realm of possibility for Returnal to get the same treatment.

Thanks to the recent Nvidia leaks, it seems that there is a listing for a Returnal PC port. The problem, though, is that this has not yet been confirmed by Sony. Nvidia has already stated that many of the listings were "speculative" and may not be fully accurate. It's possible that Nvidia was simply covering their bases, assuming that Returnal would be getting a port.

So, it seems that Returnal does not yet have a release date for PC. It's still possible that we'll see one in the future, but considering that the game only came out in April, we might not get further confirmation until next year at least.
