Sony is planning to bring more PlayStation games to the PC, and one of them could very well be the new Ratchet & Clank game that’s currently exclusive to PS5 consoles. As spotted by reddit’s Veloxz, Nixxes Software, the PlayStation-owned developer behind the celebrated PC ports for Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, is seeking a new UX-UI engineer for AAA PC titles who has experience with Coherent, a piece of middleware that’s used for creating what the company has described as stunning and high-performance game user interfaces. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart appears to be the only title from PlayStation Studios that is featured on the list of games powered by Coherent Labs.
