Sony has confirmed its acquisition of Nixxes is designed to enable further ports of PlayStation titles to PC. Speaking in an interview with Famitsu, PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan said: "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."
To help produce more PC ports was always the assumed reason behind Sony's purchase of Nixxes, but following Ryan's latest comments, it confirms the company will continue the initiative. Founded in 1999, the Dutch firm is best known for its work porting Square Enix titles to the personal computer over the past decade or so. Almost always of a very high quality, Nixxes has an excellent reputation as a result.
So far, Sony has brought Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone to PC. There's strong speculation Uncharted 4: A Thief's End could be next as the PS4 exclusive recently appeared in a presentation for investors, listed under a tab for PC. Sony is yet to confirm the port, however.
Speaking at the time of the acquisition announcement, PlayStation Studios boss Hermen Hulst was excited for the experienced team to join Sony's first-party lineup. "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."
