After Horizon Zero Dawn, Days Gone, God of War and Marvel’s Spider-Man, the Uncharted saga has just made its grand debut on PC. The compilation Legacy of Thieves Collection, which brings together Uncharted 4 and The Lost Legacy, landed on Steam and the Epic Games Store last Wednesday for a price of €49.99. But unlike other productions PlayStation Studiosit does not seem to unleash the crowds.
Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection, a timid launch on PC
As indicated by the database SteamDBUncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection recorded a peak of “only” 10,851 concurrent players on Steam, and it’s not even in the top 100 most played games on the platform. In comparison, Days Gone (27,450), Horizon Zero Dawn (56,557), Marvel’s Spider-Man (66,436), and God of War (73,529) did much better on their respective releases.

A launch that seems disappointing, but that does not seem to cool Naughty Dog, determined to continue releasing PC games in the future. Here’s what the studio said on the PS Blog:
The PC debut of the Uncharted series is both exciting and instructive. This is an opportunity for us to leverage the lessons learned from porting our games to a new platform, and the expectations and opportunities that come with it. Thanks to everything we’ve learned alongside our partners at Iron Galaxy, we’re more excited than ever to write the future of Naughty Dog games on PC (…) We look forward to bringing The Last of Us Part I to PC very soon and we believe that, PC development in no way undermines PlayStation 5’s place as the platform of choice, adding this new skill to the way we develop our games will continue to benefit our team in the long run..
While waiting to discover a precise release date for The Last of Us Part I on PC, it’s Sackboy A Big Adventure which will be invited to the platform this Thursday, October 27, followed by Spider-Man Miles Morales on November 18.
