Jetpack Interactive is handling God of War PC port

The upcoming PC version of PlayStation's God of War isn't being developed by Sony.

Speaking to Ars Technica, the platform holder confirmed that this edition of the critically acclaimed 2018 title was being handled by Jetpack Interactive. That's a studio based in Vancouver, Canada. The project is being "overseen" by the game's original developer, Sony Santa Monica.

This news comes in the wake of this new version of God of War was coming to both Steam and the Epic Games Store with a January 2022 release date. This came in the wake of other PlayStation exclusives coming to PC, such as Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone.

Earlier this year, Sony announced that it had acquired PC porting studio Nixxes, which points to computers being more of a focus for the platform holder moving forwards.

In addition to Sony Interactive Entertainment, Jetpack has worked with the likes of EA, Bandai Namco and Amazon Game Studios on projects including Dark Souls, Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare II and Orcs Must Die! Unchained.

God of War has sold 19.5 million copies between its April 2018 launch and August 2021.
