Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida confirmed the plans in a message to fans on Twitter, stating that “we are indeed working on an official application for PC/Mac.”
Some people asked if we plan to provide Remote Play function to PC, and yes, we are indeed working on an official application for PC/Mac. :D— Shuhei Yoshida (@yosp) November 27, 2015
The announcement comes days after a developer, going by the online handle Twisted, announced an unofficial Remote Play app for Windows.
Remote Play launched in November 2013, during the global release of PlayStation 4, and was pitched as an alternative way to play PS4 games through a second screen. Gameplay data is streamed to the PS Vita across a home Wi-Fi network, with input commands returning back to the system. Certain phones, such as Sony’s Xperia Z5, are also compatible with the service.
There are no further details yet on how the service will work for PC and Mac owners.
Microsoft offers a similar console-to-PC streaming service, where an Xbox One can be mirrored on a Windows 10 device.
