This past Tuesday, we reported on Sony's acquisition of Housemarque, the development studio behind games like Returnal and Resogun. Today, Sony announced that they have acquired Nixxes Software. This Dutch development studio is best known for bringing over a number of PC ports for games developed by studios such as Crystal Dynamics, IO Interactive, and Eidos Montreal.

While Nixxes does excel at their work in porting titles to the PC, there is really no saying yet what Sony will have them work on for PlayStation. Will they be the studio that polishes PlayStation titles prior to release on PC? Maybe. It's honestly anybody's guess right now.

All we know for sure right now is that Nixxes will be joining the PlayStation Studios Technology, Creative & Services Group to "provide high quality in-house technical and development capabilities for PlayStation Studios."

“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.”
