PLAYSTATION has announced that it will develop games for mobile devices with its major titles.
The company has acquired Savage Game Studios, which will now operate under the PlayStation Studios brand.
Savage is a studio that works exclusively on mobile games and is reportedly already working on a triple-A game for PlayStation.
Announced in a PlayStation blog postSony is looking to expand into the mobile gaming market after recent success in porting its popular games to PC.
PlayStation wanted to reassure gamers that their expansion into mobile will in no way hamper the development of games for the PS4 and PS5.
Instead, it wants to make it clear that the new mobile games will be an addition to current projects.
Hermen Hulst, Head of PlayStation Studios, said: “As we have assured you with our plans to bring select titles to PC, our efforts beyond console in no way diminish our commitment to the PlayStation community.
“Still [does the expansion diminish] our passion to continue creating amazing, narrative single-player experiences.”
The blog reminds gamers that despite delivering more PC ports like Spider-Man Remastered and the original God of War reboot, console gaming is still extremely strong.
Like the company’s PC ports and the upcoming PSVR2, the mobile games developed will be in addition to its console output.
Hulst continues, “Savage Game Studios joins a newly created PlayStation Studios Mobile Division.
“[This] will operate independently from our console development
“[It will] Focus on innovative on-the-go experiences based on new and existing PlayStation IP.”
The blog concludes by announcing a new triple-A mobile game that Savage is currently developing for PlayStation.
Huld explains: “[Savage is] is already working on a new unannounced triple-A live service action game for mobile devices.
“It’s too early to reveal more, but I’m so excited to see when they’ll be able to.”
