It looks like Sony may be getting more serious about bringing PlayStation games to PC. Following on from Sony’s acquisition of Housemarque, today the company announced that it has also acquired Nixxes Software, a studio mostly known for bringing console titles to PC.
Nixxes Software has been closely partnered with Square Enix in recent years, having worked bringing the Tomb Raider reboot trilogy, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Marvel’s Avengers to PC. Now, Nixxes is joining PlayStation Studios for an undisclosed sum of money.
Hermen Hulst, head of PlayStation Studios, talked up the acquisition in a statement, saying: “I highly respect Nixxes and am excited for this very experienced team to become part of the world-class development community at SIE. They have a passion for improving games and for delivering the best possible experience for gamers. Nixxes will be a strong asset for everyone across PlayStation Studios, helping our teams focus on their most important goal, which is to create unique PlayStation content at the best possible quality.”
Sony acquiring a studio primarily known for bringing console titles to PC is particularly worthy of note. Over the last 18 months, Sony has brought Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone to PC and there are reportedly plans to bring other major IP over, like Uncharted, God of War, Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us.

KitGuru Says: Nixxes has done impressive work on a number of PC titles over the last six years. Hopefully this means we can expect more PlayStation games on PC and at a faster rate in the years to come.
