Purposefully cripple product = unequal treatment. Or, as their own developers put it "is PC only, who cares."

Was that confirmed?

Yes it was commented in the games source files, you can see it yourself as just as easily.

AAA publishers view the PC as an unimportant platform outside of DLC and microtransactional revenue. That's why all of the innovation on PC is happening outside of that space.

That comment is for PC graphics code amid a bunch of console code. Doesn't that seem more like a comment meant to denote what platforms the code was for rather than a buried public statement of platform prejudice? That DsoG link even says the same thing.
