Sony has confirmed that they have bought the Nixxes studio to transfer PlayStation games to PC

Earlier this month, Sony became the owner of the Dutch studio Nixxes Software and then we wrote to you that they probably bought that team to transfer the PlayStation exclusive to the PC platform. Now that has been confirmed.

PlayStation President Jim Ryan told Japan's Famitsu magazine:

We are still in the early stages of switching our games to the PC platform, but we are pleased and looking forward to working with the Nixxes studio to help us with that.

 

When Jim Ryan says he’s happy, he’s referring to the sales results of the games on the PC. According to analysts, Horizon Zero Dawn bought more than 700,000 players in the first month of PC sales. Sony later stated that the game in the PC version achieved a return on investment of as much as 250%.

Still, Horizon Zero Dawn for PC wasn’t a good PC port at first. The game took some eight updates to correct any technical difficulties. Sony is probably hoping to avoid a repeat of such a scenario, which is why they hired the Nixxes studio, which has been optimizing PC versions of games such as Hitman, Deus Ex, and Tomb Raider for years.

It has not yet been officially announced which next PlayStation production game will end up on the PC, but Sony documents have noted that it will be Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
