Mobile Gaming to get More Exciting as Sony Plans a Big Push!
Sony plans to go big in mobile games with PlayStation games being the key to this push.
In a recent job advertisement posted, Sony seeks Head of Mobile, resources for PlayStation Studios, and SIE. This job ad reveals what’s behind cooking behind the curtain; the job ad plans for the successful candidate to “focus on successfully adapting PlayStation’s most popular franchises for mobile.” The ad further read, “You will be responsible for building and scaling a team of mobile leaders and will serve as the Head of this new business unit within PlayStation Studios.”[novashare_tweet tweet=”Mobile Gaming to get More Exciting as Sony Plans a Big Push!” cta_text=”Sony Is Going Big On Mobile Gaming” hide_hashtags=”true”]
So, this ad means that we will see mobile iterations of popular PS franchises like Naughty Dog’s Uncharted and The Last Us Series. Moreover, we can also have Polyphony’s Gran Turismo, Sony Santa Monica’s God of War, and Insomniac’s Ratchet and Clank. However, this will take a lot of time as the job ad said that a roadmap must be developed for a three to five year time.
This isn’t the first time that Sony plans to enter mobile gaming, it already has a mobile publishing label called PlayStation Mobile Inc. This mobile gaming publishing house has published the PlayStation app, Run Sackboy! Run!, Uncharted: Fortune Hunter, Hidden Agenda, and more.
Moreover, PlayStation Mobile Inc. has also been used by Sony to publish games on PC such as Horizon and the upcoming game Days Gone.
Another effort in mobile gaming from Sony dates way back to 2011. It was the launch of Xperia Play. Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Play was dubbed as “PlayStation Phone” and it came with 60 games.
Mobile gaming is a lucrative business, games like PUBG, Genshin Impact, Candy Crush make millions of dollars in a month. Sony will surely fancy its chances in the mobile games industry.
