At No. 22, God of War was unable to break Steam’s Top 20 games on Friday, in terms of concurrent players, but it’s worth noting that virtually all of the titles above it on release day were multiplayer games.
Although this port was mainly handled by Canadian studio Jetpack Interactive, the game’s original creators at Santa Monica Studio helped supervise the project. A senior developer revealed this week that the PC port of God of War was in development for at least two years.
PlayStation recently acquired Nixxes Software, which is best known for its work on the PC versions of Square Enix properties including Tomb Raider, Deus Ex, Hitman and Thief, to help it bring its games to the platform.
