Following the acquisition earlier this month, Sony president and CEO Jim Ryan has confirmed that Nixxes Software is working on porting PlayStation games to PC. This is according to a translation by VGC.
Ryan said in a Famitsu interview that PlayStation is “happy to be in the early stages of bringing our IP to the PC, and look forward to working with Nixxes to help us do that.” Nixxes is known for porting games to PC and worked on titles like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Marvel’s Avengers.
Sony picked up the Netherlands-based studio in early July, following its acquisition of Returnal developer Housemarque. The buyout price remains a mystery, but PlayStation Studios head Herman Hulst praised Nixxes for its “deep technical expertise and vast experience.”
Nixxes joins “PlayStation Studios Technology, Creative & Services Group to provide high-quality in-house technical and development capabilities for PlayStation Studios,” Sony stated in a press release while announcing the buyout.
After Horizon Zero Dawn released on PC last year, Sony made it clear more games could make to PC. Not long afterwards, Days Gone joined the PC world on May 18th. Also, a document discovered in May found that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End might be the next PlayStation exclusive to head to PC.
However, PlayStation clarified that it wouldn’t release its games on PC directly at launch. Xbox’s Phil Spencer doesn’t like this strategy, as the company has become more aggressive in releasing games on PC.
