Sony Boss Jim Ryan Confirms Nixxes Will Bring PlayStation Games To PC

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.

I am a Platinum lover and an ex- Cod-aholic. I've been playing games since I was 5 years old and I refuse to quit, despite my mother's attempts to get me to. God of War and its successors are my all time favorite games.
