Several weeks ago, Sony made news by acquiring two developers into PlayStation Studios. Though Housemarque undeniably took the spotlight after recent work on Returnal - and they might've accidentally revealed a Bluepoint Games acquisition too - they surprisingly brought in Nixxes Software.
A Dutch team best known for PC ports and outsourcing projects, many wondered if this would tie into Sony's recent PC gaming push, having brought over Horizon Zero Dawn, Days Gone and Predator: Hunting Grounds. Now, PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan has confirmed this is indeed the reason.
Sony Confirms Nixxes Acquisition Is To Aid Future PC Ports
Speaking to Famitsu for a recent interview, Ryan confirmed this was done to better enable further ports of PlayStation games. Specifically, he advised:
We are also happy with our efforts to provide our IP to PCs, although it is still in its infancy, and we look forward to working with Nixxes to help with that.
While Sony previously stated they believe PlayStation remains "the best place" for their games, we've seen rumours surrounding releases for Ghost of Tsushima and Uncharted 4, though one leaker recently ruled out Bloodborne. We'll keep you updated as we learn more about Sony's expanding PC strategy.
