Sony confirms it bought a PC port specialist studio “to help with” PC ports

Earlier this month Sony acquired Nixxes Software, a studio primarily dedicated to porting console games to PC – leading many fans to theorise that Sony bought them to work on exclusively creating PC ports of PS4 and PS5 games. A month later, Sony has now confirmed that this is exactly the case and Nixxes is “to help with” bringing the publisher’s catalogue to PC.

On July 1, Sony announced via press release that it had bought Nixxes Software “to provide high quality in-house technical and development capabilities for PlayStation Studios,” with studio founder Jurjen Katsman saying that it would deliver the “highest-quality gameplay experiences for PlayStation fans”.

Nixxes has been around for over 20 years, and despite having a few PlayStation ports in that time its focus has primarily been on the PC – its most recent projects being the PC versions of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, and Marvel’s Avengers. Consequently, fans immediately jumped to the conclusion that Nixxes would be working on more PC ports for first-party PlayStation games – and now that’s been confirmed.
