Sackboy: A Big Adventure is definitely coming to PC, and another leak points to a Returnal release for the platform as well.
It looked like Sackboy: A Big Adventure was heading to PC after an anonymous list delivered the game a few weeks ago. And this is now official, with the PlayStation Latin America account uploading a trailer – currently unlisted – for the title.
Sackboy: A Big Adventure will launch on PC on Thursday, October 27, according to the trailer description. And it looks like it will be joined by Housemarque’s terrifying roguelike shooter Returnal. Which is fitting, given that Sackboy received Returnal-themed DLC last year.
ONE SteamDB listing (opens in new tab) discovered in May was the first hint that Returnal was coming to PC. A month later, in June, screenshots of the Sackboy and Returnal PC menus were leaked on reddit and posted on Twitter:

And earlier this month, during a presentation by GDC (via eurogamer (opens in new tab)) Returnal was seen running on a PC dev kit – a detail seen by Alex Battaglia of Digital Foundry:
Returnal’s presentation of GDC’s VFX and particle work is pretty cool – but I like the bonus that it has to once again confirm the PC version. Debug, read! Link to presentation: pic.twitter.com/xz4CUxqqU3September 5, 2022
The latest leak is a video posted on IconEra (opens in new tab) showing what appears to be Returnal’s graphical PC menu and the various options available. So we’re pretty confident that we’ll see a Returnal PC release soon. There’s more evidence floating around for the harbor than there is for Sackboy, but as always, with no official word, temper your expectations. Just in case.
A number of PlayStation exclusive games have already been released for PC now, including God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, which arrived on PS5 earlier this year and will hit PC on Wednesday, October 19th. .
The library of PlayStation exclusive games migrating to PC is growing and will only increase if this trend is anything to go by. With the PS5’s refueling issues refusing to abate, if you have a PC you’ll be in a great position to enjoy the console exclusives appearing on your platform in the interim.
