PlayStation is now in the process of acquiring studios, with Housemarque being the latest team to join the AAA game publishing family, the Netherlands-based studio, Nixxes Software, was just acquired by Sony. In a recent tweet from the head of PlayStation Studios, Herman Hulst, the studio has “deep” technical expertise. Nixxes also helped with the PC ports of Marvel’s Avengers and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
Hulst also added in a subsequent Twitter post that the studio also helped develop Killzone: Shadow Fall in 2013. PlayStation Studios manager named in a press release that Nixxes will “help” the first-party teams to bring the “best possible quality”. Based on Nixxes’ portfolio, we’ve yet to see the team develop their own game, but with Sony’s pursuit of AAA games, the Netherlands-based studio can only help the other first-party teams.
Founder and Senior Director, Jurjen Katsman, said he was excited to help the PlayStation Studios teams by leveraging their technical and development expertise to bring high-quality AAA games to the platform.
It’s worth noting with the recent reports of bringing Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Ghost of Tsushima to PC, Nixxes could play a big part in porting this blockbuster exclusive.
