Sony is Looking to Bring “PlayStation’s Most Popular Franchises” to Mobile

Uncharted, God of War, The Last of Us on mobile? Why not.

A recent report shed light on Sony’s shifting priorities, and how PlayStation no longer wants to make smaller games as it instead pivots to save all of its time and resources for larger AAA blockbuster productions. Outside of the console market though, it seems as if they’re still willing to expand and try new things. A new job listing was recently posted by Sony for the position of the head of PlayStation Studios’ mobile division, which suggests that Sony is looking to enter the mobile gaming scene in a big way.

The job ad in question states that Sony is looking to “develop the mobile games strategy for PlayStation Studios and help build a foundation for future growth opportunities” and is working toward the “expansion of our game development from consoles and PCs to mobile & Live Services with a focus on successfully adapting PlayStation’s most popular franchises for mobile.”

Of course, when you think of PlayStation’s biggest franchises, you think of the likes of God of War, Uncharted, The Last of Us, Gran Turismo, and more. It should be interesting to see how some of those make the jump to the modern mobile gaming scene (if they all do indeed make the jump).

That said, it’s not surprising that Sony is taking this step. There’s huge potential in the mobile gaming scene, especially from a commercial perspective. As games such as Genshin Impact and PUBG Mobile have shown (to name just a couple), there’s a lot of money to be made in the mobile gaming space.
