Sony Interactive Entertainment recently acquired Netherlands-based Nixxes Software. The company was founded in 1999 and has worked on porting games to the PC including multiple Square Enix games.

Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan in an interview with Famitsu said he is looking forward to working with Nixxes to port PlayStation games to PC. 

"We are also happy with our efforts to provide our IP to PCs, although it is still in its infancy, and we look forward to working with Nixxes to help with that," Ryan said.

Nixxes Software will join PlayStation Studios Technology, Creative & Services Group with a goal to provide high quality in-house technical and development capabilities for PlayStation Studios.

Since Sony are clearly looking to release their titles on PC (even if not day 1), it's a smart move to have a team who can be dedicated to this procedure, especially one who is so highly regarded.

Great! Many here will say this is bad, but I really like to see more support for PC, which is the ultimate platform in "game preservation"!
I believe they will only release PS4/PS5 games 2-4 years after the initial release, but I would be pleasantly surprised to see "day 1" releases, it would be the perfect reason to focus 100% on my PC.

They did a day one release before with Predator Hunting Grounds (2020) and the PC release of ReadySet Heroes (2019) was only a month away from the PS4 release. I think that at least some upcoming multiplayer games will be released day one on PlayStation and PC with cross-play support between these platforms.

Yeah, agreed. I don't have a PS but would love to play some of the exclusives, like Infamous for example. I don't mind waiting for them to reach the platform, and adding to what you said I can mod the "preserved" games to make them look current gen and still have a blast. I like where this is headed.

Now we just need Nintendo and the dream of non-exclusivity is complete and as Nintendo always does the unexpected maybe it will happen.

I mean, there's still going to be console exclusivity lol you're not gonna be finding Last of Us or God of War on Xbox or Nintendo. PC seems to be more of a neutral ground when it comes to the console landscape. But it is a brighter future indeed though for more games on more platforms though!

All consoles will still have exclusives to each other, if that means something to the people buying the platforms, but its a mentality i never understood. Sony, Nintendo and Xbox know that there is a large PC audience out there with no intentions on buying a console.
