The Last of Us has finally come to PC. Although the Part 1 PC port has been met with rocky reception due to technical issues, players are still wondering if the sequel will get one as well.

Will Ellie and Joel's adventure continue on Windows, or will Sony keep the sequel on PlayStation consoles only? Let's get into this Last of Us Part 2 PC guide and see what we know so far.

As of right now, there are no plans for The Last of Us Part 2 coming to PC. Although when it comes to PC ports of Sony exclusives, it's usually a case of "for now". 

Sony almost always has a track record of not announcing a PC port for a PS4/PS5 exclusive until long after its original release. 

For example, Horizon Zero Dawn's PC port didn't come out until August 2020, over 3 years since its PS4 launch. Spider-Man (2018) didn't come out on PC until 4 years later in August 2022. God of War (2018), arguably one of the best games of all time alongside The Last of Us, also had a 4 year wait to come out on PC - released in January 2022. 

All in all, Sony really likes to wait on bringing games to platforms like Steam not just taking time to gauge interest from the wider PC community but to also space out releases to build anticipation. 

In the case of The Last of Us Part 1, it was actually to longest awaited PlayStation-to-PC port so far since it had been 10 years since the original game's release on PS3. By waiting not only until the Part 1 remake on PS5 came out - but also the full release of the HBO series adaptation - Sony obviously is honing its output so releases come out when demand is at its highest. 

Plus, since the Last of Us Part 1 PC port has only just come out, Sony will most likely be aiming to wait for more time to pass before rebuilding the hype with an announced Part 2 port.

What's more, developer Naughty Dog LLC will want to take said time to iron out all the technical wrinkles with the Part 1 release - to the point where it's been regarded as the worst PC port ever
