Only days after announcing the acquisition of Returnal developer Housemarque, PlayStation Studios head Hermen Hulst announced via Twitter that they have also acquired Dutch developer Nixxes Software.
Nixxes Software is best known for working on PC ports for titles as recent as Square Enix’s Marvel’s Avengers and Tomb Raider trilogy.
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!

According to the official press release, Hulst said:
“I highly respect Nixxes and am excited for this very experienced team to become part of the world-class development community at SIE.
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.”
This is probably part of Sony Interactive Entertainment’s long-term plans to bring more PlayStation exclusive franchises and titles to the PC platform. They have already ported Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone to great success, with probably more on the way. We’ll just have to wait and see what they are.
Bloodborne on PC, anyone?
