God of War PC port outsourced to Canadian developer Jetpack Interactive

By Kes Eylers-Stephenson,
Studio Santa Monica's God of War (2018) is coming to PC next year, causing quite the stir amongst hardcore PlayStation fans. It has been revealed that the studio making the port happen is Vancouver-based Jetpack Interactive.

A confirmation of the studio working on the project was given by Sony representatives to Ars Technica (thanks, PSU). In addition, the representatives confirmed that the PC port development has been "overseen" by Santa Monica Studio. Jetpack Interactive has worked on several different ports previously, like Orcs Must Die! Unchained for PS4.

In addition, VGC noted that Warren Lee of Jetpack has listed God of War: Ragnarök as a title that the team has been working on. Perhaps an immediate PC port is on the way for the sequel, or perhaps the team is just lending help as Jetpack has done previously for published like EA.

This is notable because Sony specifically acquired Nixxes for PC porting work, but the Dutch team has yet to be ascribed a project. This gives us an indication that the God of War port has been in the works for a long while and that Nixxes is being bedded in gradually. Colin Moriarty, speaking on Sacred Symbols podcast Ep. 173, reported that he believes that there is a Bloodborne PC port coming (and possibly a remake) as recently as last Friday. It is possible that the port is going to be Nixxes first major test.

Let us know what you think of the news in the comments! Are you happy with a PC port with a few upgrades? Are you excited about Ragnarök? We want to know it all, you hear?
