Dreams PC and PS5 ports were “ready to ship” before being cancelled

First shown off all the way back in 2013, Media Molecule’s Dreams served as one of the most interesting first-party PlayStation titles in recent memory. The community-driven game creation toolkit had seen a great deal of post-launch support following Dreams’ release in early 2020. Unfortunately, in April of last year it was announced that support for the game was ending – with reports now claiming that a PS5 and PC version was planned prior to its cancellation.

As claimed by known console hacker and dataminer Lance McDonald (and reported by GameInfinitus), prior to its end-of-life, a PC port of Media Molecule’s Dreams was in the works. Additionally, a PS5 upgrade was also planned, and was said to come with mouse and keyboard support alongside some form of ray-tracing.

Apparently, these ports were quite far along in development, with the PC version in particular said to have “already been finished”. According to McDonald, both ports were unfortunately cancelled following a round of lay-offs at Media Molecule last year – meaning Dreams will forever remain gimped by its PS4/PSVR1 limitations.

As a massive fan of Media Molecule and Dreams in particular, the reveal that a PS5 and PC version was in the works but ultimately cancelled stings quite a bit. Unfortunately, Dreams will never realise its true potential.
