Sony acquires the Nixxes Software studio, specialized in ports

sony acquires nixxes

If Sony defends itself against any “acquisition race”, the takeover of Nixxes Software follows very closely that of Housemarque.

Of course, there is no question of competing with an acquisition of the magnitude of Microsoft’s when the developer of Xbox spent a trifle of $ 7.5 billion in the buyout of Bethesda .

Still, Sony confirms its appetite for the moment and, a few days after having swallowed Housemarque – notably known for the excellent Returnal -, the Japanese announced the acquisition of Nixxes Software.

The company doesn’t tell you anything? So you haven’t, like us, spent hours on the measurement tool built into Shadow of the Tomb Raider . Founded in the Netherlands in 1999, Nixxes Software has indeed specialized in various and varied ports.

For example, this studio took charge of the PC / PS3 versions of Tomb Raider Underworld years ago. He also worked on Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Hitman: Absolution in their Windows versions. More recently, the company took care of Rise of the Tomb Raider and then Shadow of the Tomb Raider still on PC.

Through this acquisition, could it be that Sony is seeking to have a greater strike force on the PC?
