God of War PC version is being processed by an external developer

Sony has confirmed that future God of War PC ports will be handled by Canadian studio Jetpack Interactive. The company previously provided engineer support for the PC version of Dark Souls.

In the statement provided to Ars Technica, Sony said the former God of War developer Sony Santa Monica oversees the development of the PC version being processed by Jetpack Interactive. The Vancouver-based studio is a port-centric developer who previously worked at EA on Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, NBA Live 15 and 14. Also, Orcs Must Die! Completed the PS4 port mission. Break the chain for robot entertainment.

The choice of Jetpack Interactive may come as a surprise as Sony acquired PC port specialist Nixxes earlier this year. However, this deal was only announced in July, so if the God of War PC version has been in development for some time, that could be the reason Jetpack is handling the ports instead of Nixxes. However, Sony has promised to bring PlayStation games to the PC, so Nixxes expects to be involved in future projects.

The PC version of God of War is announced this month, bringing the PS4 blockbuster to computers via Steam and the Epic Games Store. With a full 10/10 review and later the 2018 Game of the Year, it’s definitely popular on PC. Recently, voters in a series of IGN polls have named it the best video game ever.
