Souls of the demon first appeared on PlayStation 3 in 2022 and quickly became the benchmark for challenging mainstream games. Sony kept the first Souls episode exclusive to its platform despite the series later moving to more platforms with the Dark Souls Trilogy. Now, Demon's Souls makes a harrowing return as an equally beautiful and sinister remake, ready to enrage a whole new generation of gamers on a new generation of consoles.
With From Software's other hits - Dark Souls, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and the upcoming Elden Ring - all spanning multiple platforms, the question remains: will the Demon's Souls remake finally break free from its shackles? PlayStation and will release on PC?
The answer, at least for now, is no. The Demon's Souls PS5 Remake announcement originally came with the text "Also available on PC." Unfortunately, a follow-up statement was released claiming that the inclusion of the text was due to human error. Whether or not the explanation is true can't be determined, though it's hard to believe there isn't a future where PC gamers have the ability to get in on the punishing action.
Sony said as recently as August 2022 that the company “will consider expanding [their] first-party titles onto the PC platform. We've seen this happen before with Horizon Zero Dawn and Death Stranding. The Demon's Souls situation is more like 'when', not 'if' when it comes to a PC release.
However, this is pure speculation at this point. With no definitive answer on whether or not there is a timed PS5 exclusive from Sony or developer Bluepoint Games, we are left with only the news that the Demon's Souls remake is a next-gen Sony exclusive and will remain so in a foreseeable future. .
