Sony acquires Savage Game Studios for mobile division

Sony has officially announced the acquisition of German mobile game developer Savage Game Studios. According to PlayStation Studios head Hermen Hulst, the developer will lead a brand new “mobile division” at Sony focused on “expanding” the PlayStation community and gaming offering.

Founded in 2020 by veteran developers from Wargaming, Zynga, Rovio and Insomniac, Savage Game Studios has achieved great success in the short time it has been in operation. In early 2021, the studio raised $4.4 million to work on a mobile shooter game and expand its development to multiple regions.

The move apparently caught the attention of Sony, which will now be collaborating with Savage Game Studios on upcoming mobile projects, including an “announced AAA live service mobile action game.”

In a new blog post, Hulst gushed about the acquisition, but also made it clear that Sony’s expansion into mobile — while Microsoft is making similar moves — is nothing to worry about.

“As we’ve 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 or our passion to continue creating amazing, narrative-driven single-player experiences ‘ Hulst said.

“Our mobile gaming efforts will be similarly additive, providing more ways for more people to engage with our content and striving to reach new audiences unfamiliar with PlayStation and our games. Savage Game Studios joins a newly formed PlayStation Studios Mobile Division that will operate independently of our console development and focus on innovative on-the-go experiences based on new and existing PlayStation IP.’

Mobile gaming is expanding at a rapid pace, and it’s likely that Sony will try to capture a piece of the market as it continues to grow. Expect more about Sony’s burgeoning mobile division in the coming months.
