Nikon Z8 firmware 2.0 pixel shift

From Nikon USA:

The update also adds Pixel Shift shooting, which enables the creation of super high-resolution photos by using dedicated software to merge multiple NEF (RAW) files captured with the function. With the Z 8’s high-resolution sensor, images can be captured with an astonishing 180 megapixels. Pixel Shift shooting is ideal for capturing the finest details in subjects with intricate designs, such as buildings and art pieces, while providing precise rendering of the subject’s colors, textures, and structures.

End excerpt. I understand that DxO PL supports pixel shift images from some cameras. Is this (will this be) supported in PL for the Nikon Z8 (and presumably Nikon Z9 in a future firmware release)? 180 Mpix presumably will be files between 4 and 5 times larger than the current FX NEF raw files from the Z8.
