PlayStation have officially announced the acquisition of Savage Game Studios, a development studio that specialise in making mobile games.
PlayStation Studios head Hermen Hulst said in the announcement that Sony share Savage Games Studios' ambition to innovate and bring PlayStation games to more people than ever before, which makes them a perfect fit to join the PlayStation Studios family.
Savage Game Studios are currently busy working on a new unannounced AAA mobile live service action game. The announcement states that it's still early to reveal the details but the team will be sharing more when ready.
Additionally, Hulst said PlayStation's mobile division will aim to provide more ways for gamers to engage with the PlayStation content, reaching audiences that are unfamiliar with their games.
PlayStation Studios Mobile Division operates independently from the console development and focus on mobile titles based on new and existing PlayStation franchises.
We fully expect to see Sony's biggest IPs like Spider-Man , God of War and Horizon: Forbidden West on mobile in some form. The possibilities are endless and it will be interesting to see what Sony and their mobile division come up with.
If you're one of those fanboys who are concerned that Sony's focus on other platforms may result in fewer games for PlayStation 5, fear not. Sony are pretty adamant that they will continue to create narrative-driven single-player experiences they're known for.
Sony have a big blockbuster God of War: Ragnarok releasing later this year, with Spider-Man 2 and Wolverine following in the coming years.
