Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection on PC has been out for almost a week and while it had some success – it wasn’t as big a launch as Sony’s other major PC releases like God of War, Marvel’s Spider-Man and Horizon. Zero Dawn. The game hit its all-time peak 2 days ago, reaching 10,851 players while the all-time peak for God of War is around 73,529 players.
The all-time peak for games usually comes within the first two weeks of the game’s launch, so it stands to reason that Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection on PC won’t compete with the likes of Sony’s other releases. Marvel’s Spider-Man and Horizon Zero Dawn hit similar numbers close to their launch and have a relatively active user base months after launch.
There could be many factors that probably contributed to this rather anticlimactic release of the game on PC, such as a price declining interest in the IP.

Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection on PC Fails to Launch
The collection features both Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: Lost Legacy, including some PC-specific enhancements like ultrawide monitor support and ray tracing. While the quality of the games is beyond reproach as they are clearly two of the best games in the franchise, they are also two of the best games the genre has to offer.
Perhaps the reason the collection hasn’t been able to take off like the rest of its PlayStation brethren is that the games themselves aren’t as new as God of War or Spider-Man. At this point, gamers have had Uncharted 4 around since 2017 and have seen a lot of it over the years.
Furthermore, every other PlayStation game released on PC was either the start of a new franchise or a soft reboot (God of War). This makes the games a good starting point for PC gamers as they can jump into these titles without the baggage of the series’ history.
With Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy, to a lesser extent, fans need the context of the rest of the series for the game’s story and themes to hit home. This could be a reason that contributes to the game’s all-time low and why players didn’t exactly flock to the launch like they did for God of War and Spider-Man.
While this wasn’t a home run hit for Sony, the platform owner is likely looking to bring more of its IP to PC to attract a whole new audience this way. Next up for PC gamers is Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part I Remake.
