Returnal PC port all but confirmed by tiny details in GDC talk

Returnal coming to PC has to be one of PlayStation’s worst-kept secrets, and here’s the latest slip. Back in May a Steam listing appeared with the codename ‘Oregon’, accompanied by tags and text that lined-up with Returnal’s contents, and shortly afterwards some screens leaked. In July the ‘Oregon’ listing was updated with Steam Deck support, and now some of the game’s developers have gone and given a talk containing what looks very much like footage and screens of a PC version.

Risto Jankkila and Sharman Jagadeesan, both of Returnal developer Housemarque, gave a GDC talk on VFX, during which they used clips and screens of the game. The game is running on a PC using a debug readout, first noticed by Digital Foundry’s Alex Battaglia, which is not a smoking gun in itself but includes some eyebrow-raising details.
