Sony Acquires Nixxes Software

Sony acquires Nixxes Software, a clear bid to secure further PC ports of PlayStation-exclusive games, the company announced.

The news that Sony acquires Nixxes Software comes mere days after the company also acquired developer Housemarque, a Finnish developer known for their games mostly released only on PlayStation. Nixxes Software, on the other hand, focuses primarily on porting games to Windows PC.

Nixxes Software is joining the PlayStation Studios Technology, Creative, & Services Group to aid in development and technical support of further works from various PlayStation Studios teams.

“I highly respect Nixxes and am excited for this very experienced team to become part of the world-class development community at SIE,” said Hermen Hulst, Head of PlayStation Studios. “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.”

“We can’t wait to get to work and are so excited to bring our technical and development expertise to an IP powerhouse like PlayStation Studios,” said Jurjen Katsman, Founder & Sr. Director, Development, Nixxes. “We’re looking forward to working with some of the most talented teams in the industry to deliver the highest-quality gameplay experiences for PlayStation fans.”
