Sony is projecting it will pocket $300 million from PC gaming titles in the coming fiscal year.

The tech giant, which reported $80 million in PC net sales in FY2021, is projecting a significant jump thanks to its agreement in January to acquire Bungie — the original creator of “Halo” and current developer of “Destiny” — in a deal valued at $3.6 billion.

The deal, which will see Bungie continue to independently develop and publish games, is expected to close this year.

Sony expects roughly 15% to 20% of its releases in the fiscal year ahead to be on PC.

By 2025, the conglomerate expects that figure to reach around 30%.
Despite the desire to embrace PC gaming, Sony has only announced one upcoming title for PC so far, “Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection,” which has yet to receive a release date.

Sony deepening its ties in PC gaming allows the Tokyo-based company to expand its reach in a global gaming market that is projected to reach $222 billion in 2022.
