PlayStation acquires PC port developer Nixxes


The PlayStation studios keep growing

PlayStation has picked up a new studio with a specialty in bringing games over to the PC. Head of PlayStation Studios Hermen Hulst announced today that Sony Interactive Entertainment has acquired Nixxes, a Dutch studio with experience in porting games to the PC.

Nixxes has previously partnered with the likes of Eidos Montreal and Crystal Dynamics, including work on Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Under PlayStation, Nixxes will provide “high quality in-house technical and development capabilities” for PlayStation Studios.

“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,” said Hulst in a statement.

This is the second PlayStation acquisition this week, as Sony recently announced its acquisition of Returnal developer Housemarque.
