Following the development of unofficial PS4 Remote Play Support for the PC, Sony has revealed that they, themselves, are working on official Remote Play for the PC.
Sony head Shuhei Yoshida confirmed the news via a Tweet.
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. 😀

Coming to both PC as well as Mac, we imagine that Sony’s solution will be a damn sight more capable than the unofficial application, if only because the unofficial app uses an Android emulator.
Direct streaming without software emulation should offer flat-out better performance and a application which should natively handle the many resolutions available to PCs, something Android emulation can struggle with.
Either way, Remote Play for the PS4 to PC is going to happen. It’s taken longer than expected, but it’s better late than never.
