Since its release a few days ago, fans have pored over the game’s files and found references to PlayStation Network integration in its code, something that would allow connecting console accounts to specific games to offer in-game extras as rewards. So far none of the Sony games –spider-man, horizon zero dawn, days gone, God of War– allow to use a PSN account, but spider-man is the first with references to PSNAccountLinked Y PSNLinkingEntitlements.

Among the next confirmed releases of Sony for PC we know Spider-Man: Miles Morales Y Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection.
A PlayStation Network account is not required at this time
Sony opened a web page within PlayStation dedicated to its PC games and in the section of frequently asked questions it is explained that “no, you currently do not need a PSN account to enjoy PlayStation Studios games on PC”. This may change in the future, or at least be optional, as an incentive for those who already have a PlayStation console account.
In the case of Xbox, there are games that do not need an Xbox Live account on PC, such as minecraft dungeons, Ori and the Will of the Wisps either Psychonauts 2while others like ForzaHorizon 5, Sea of Thieves, Halo: The Master Chief Collection Y Ace Dusk Falls they do indicate it on their Steam page, which allows progress and achievements shared between systems.
