Sony is making mobile games under its newly spun-off PlayStation Studios Mobile Divison. As part of its mobile efforts, it has acquired Savage Game Studios. Here is what to expect in terms of Sony mobile games.
Sony is expanding its reach to the mobile gaming space with its latest acquisition of Savage Game Studios. We will learn more about this German company down below. But for now, know it has offices in Berlin and Helsinki and consists of industry veterans as developers. Not only that, the Savage management team would be handling the day-to-day operations at PlayStation Studios Mobile Division. The latter is the new fork of the Sony PlayStation business and exists independent of its Console division. All that business details aside, the exciting bit of news from Sony’s announcement is that the company is working on a AAA mobile title.
Sony PlayStation Studios Mobile Division: Acquisition and Plan Forward
Sony Interactive Entertainment (“SIE”) has got into a “definitive agreement” to acquire Savage Game Studio.
This adds co-founders of Savage Game Studios: Michail Katkoff (Rovio, Zynga, Fun Plus, Supercell), Nadjim Adjir (Wargaming, Rovio, Gree), and Michael McManus (Wargaming, Insomniac, Kabam) to the Sony PlayStation Studios Mobile Division.
With this move, Sony aims to “deliver a high-quality experience” and “make the best games that we can.”
I’m thrilled to welcome Savage Game Studios. They join a new independent PlayStation Studios Mobile Division whose mission is to reach even more new players around the world. Michail and his team are already working on something great; I can’t wait until they can show you. https://t.co/61HpPOmFvs
