God of War: PC port is not in PlayStation Studios hands

After long months of making increasingly insistent foot calls to PC gamers, Sony fired its biggest cartridge this week, announcing the arrival of God of War in 2022. Boy.

The plans for domination of the gaming world are accelerating at Sony: after successively bringing Days Gone and Horizon Zero Dawn to PC, the manufacturer is now hammering out its repeated strategy to anyone who wants to hear it from the president of Sony Interactive Entertainment Jim Ryan: the home exclusives will eventually arrive on PC. By announcing last week the porting of the divine God of War, in 4K of families and with a 21: 9 display, the company was certainly striking a blow.

Faced with this oh so strategic project, some would have legitimately thought that the little guys from Nixxes were going to take care of further enhancing the GOTY 2018 (according to the Game Awards): the Dutch studio specializing in porting games to PC and bought this summer had a priori the tailor-made CV. But this is not the case, since representatives of Sony were able to confirm to our colleagues fromArs Technica than God of War is currently in the hands of the Canadians of Jetpack Interactive, which have already proven themselves with Orcs Must Die !, NBA LIVE or Dark Souls.

To everyone’s surprise, Jetpack Intercative had never directly collaboratedé with the manufacturer, who wanted to reassure the players: the site is directly supervised by the Santa Monica studio. We must obviously not miss the boat, especially after the criticisms that could have punctuated the release of Horizon Zero Dawn in 2020, since the developers of Guerilla had quickly been forced to explain themselves on the technical problems encountered by many fishermen.

The year 2022 will be a busy one for the master race platform: in addition to seeing God of War land at the beginning of the year, it will also be necessary to take into account the arrival of the Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection compilation, quite recently. announced, on PC and PS5.
