Though the writing had been scrawled on the decrepit wall for some time, developer The Chinese Room has officially confirmed that award-winning PS4 exclusive Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is bound for PC.
Word comes by way of the studio’s Twitter account, noting that the port will boast 4K support and run at a native 60 frames-per-second, if your rig is up to the task.
In an interview with PC Gamer, Creative Director Dan Pinchbeck conceded that a PC version of the apocalyptic exploration game was always on the cards.
“We always wanted to get it onto PC as it’s kind of our home turf and we’ve got a lot of really passionate, supportive fans on PC. We kept making sure all the way through development that Sony knew that we could do it, and that we really wanted to do it. Around the time Rapture came out on PS4 there must have been an internal discussion at their end, as suddenly it became a possibility, so we jumped at the chance. It’s a bit like coming home—we’re absolutely chuffed to bits it’s going to get a PC release.”
Still no word on a release date at the time of writing, but keep your peepers peeled on The Chinese Room’s social feeds for further updates.
It’s been the worst-kept secret, but it’s now official… Rapture will be coming to PC! No release date yet, but we’ll keep you posted!

And there you have it. Choosing to confirm the fabled PC version on April Fools’ Day naturally drew apprehension that the news could be faked, but make no mistake, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture – and the heart-wrenching tale of a desolate Yaughton – is primed to make the jump from PS4 to PC.
