Recall that rumors about Returnal on PC have been circulating since 2021: the project was leaked from GeForce Now servers, the alleged game site was found on SteamDB, the VGC portal received a video with the project allegedly running on a PC works, and screenshots of this port have been posted on Reddit.

However, not everyone is convinced. ResetEra user Darkkahn expressed doubts about the reality of Returnal’s appearance on PC, but Battaglia retorted: “I literally saw her working on the PC lol”.

When Returnal can be seen on PC by everyone else, Battaglia hasn’t specified, but given recent activity on the SteamDB side, official confirmation of the port may not be far off.

Returnal debuted on PS5 in April 2021 and received an endless mode update in March 2022. The game tells the story of an astronaut Selene who finds herself stuck in a time warp on the exotic planet Atropos.
