So we know that the game will be arriving on PC, but Sony didn’t share which studio will be handling the PC port, until now. As reported by Ars Technica, the port is being overseen by Sony Santa Monica Studio, but the studio actually taking care of the PC version is Jetpack Interactive. Which studio did you say? Well, not one of the better-known studios, but the studio previously worked with Sony on the PS4 port of Orcs Must Die! Unchained. In the past, the studio also helped out on several of EA’s titles, including the NBA Live series and Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare II.
"Sony representatives have confirmed to Ars that this port is being "overseen" by its creators at Sony Santa Monica while otherwise handled by Jetpack Interactive, a port-focused studio based in Vancouver, BC", the outlet writes in its update God of War PC article.
