Just two days after announcing its acquisition of Returnal studio Housemarque, Sony has confirmed that it has purchased another developer: Nixxes Software. The news was shared in a tweet from head of PlayStation Studios Hermen Hulst today, who confirmed that the PC port specialist has officially joined its growing family of PlayStation Studios. Nixxes’ logo should be familiar to many PC gamers, as the developer has been responsible for porting a number of blockbuster titles such as Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Rise of the Tomb Raider. Sony’s acquisition of Nixxes seems to suggest that it is firmly committed to bringing more of its first-party PlayStation titles to the PC.
Excited to announce that the talented Dutch studio Nixxes Software will be joining PlayStation Studios. It's a real pleasure to welcome a team with such deep technical expertise and vast experience to the @Playstation family. Huge congrats to everyone @NixxesSoftware!— Hermen Hulst (@hermenhulst) July 1, 2021
“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.”
