The early leaks confirmed it, but now Sony has made it official.

After months of leaks (opens in new tab), Sony has now confirmed an October 27 release date for the PC port of Sackboy: A Big Adventure. The cooperative 3D platformer—a PS5 launch title—will boast a few nice quality-of-life improvements when it hits Steam (opens in new tab) and the Epic Games Store (opens in new tab), both of which now offer it for wishlisting and pre-purchase.
Confirmation of the port initially leaked out of the Latin American PlayStation YouTube account, and is now up on the PlayStation Blog (opens in new tab), along with an English language version of the trailer, which you can see embedded above. 4K resolution with support for 120fps is in, it’ll play nice with 21:9 ultrawide monitors, and DLSS and VRR are both supported.
GamesRadar gave Sackboy: A Big Adventure a perfect score (opens in new tab) on release, and I myself can confirm that it’s really fun: you can pick up your coop buddies and send them hurtling off cliffs. According to the announcement trailer, the port will release on October 27.
Now that Sackboy is out of the bag, it’s likely that Returnal—which is pretty much definitely coming to PC—will follow in November. Details on that port leaked via a rogue YouTube video yesterday, confirming DLSS and FSR. Sony has removed the video, but you can read the details here (opens in new tab).
