While initially it seemed like Demon’s Souls would be coming to PC, Sony has explained that the title is only coming to PS5.
Initially revealed earlier this year, the upcoming Demon’s Souls remake from Bluepoint Games will bring back the classic title for a new generation right alongside the PS5’s launch. While it’s been known for some time that the title would be developed for the PS5, the most recent trailer for the game may have gotten fans’ hopes up that it would arrive on other platforms. However, Sony has seemed to dash those hopes by confirming the title will be exclusive to PS5 owners after an erroneous trailer for the game seemed to suggest otherwise.
Following the PS5 Showcase that aired earlier today, an alternate version of the gameplay trailer for Demon’s Souls seemed to indicate that the title would not only be coming to PS5, but would also be available on PC and implied that it would be a timed exclusive that could come to other platforms. However, shortly after it went live, Sony removed the video from its YouTube channel, indicating that there may have been an issue or error.
According to a report from Kotaku–who reached out to Sony regarding the trailer–Sony clarified that the trailer that was uploaded was incorrect regarding Demon’s Souls coming to PC or other platforms. A representative from Sony noted that it was “a human error” and that the title will only be releasing exclusively for the PS5 when it launches in November.
While this might be a bummer for those that were hoping for the title to make its way to other platforms down the line, it was still a bit of an unexpected surprise that Demon’s Souls is ending up as a launch title for the PS5. Initially the game didn’t have a release window when it was first announced, but we won’t have to wait too much longer to die over and over again.
Demon’s Souls will release for the PS5 on November 12, 2020.
