It appears that PlayStation is planning to further develop and expand its mobile game offerings, if we can judge from a recent job posting at PlayStation Studios.
The job listing shared on the ResetEra forums (via IGN) is for a new Head of Mobile at PlayStation Studios. Based on the job posting, Sony Interactive Entertainment is seeking someone from San Mateo or Los Angeles to “define and develop the mobile gaming strategy for PlayStation Studios” and “be responsible for building and growing a team of mobile leaders and will serve as head of this new business unit within PlayStation Studios. “
While the list speaks in general terms that the chief mobile device has to lead “all aspects of expanding our game development from consoles and PCs to mobile and live services,” it also speaks of a “particular focus on successfully adapt the most popular PlayStation franchises for mobile. “
It also seems that Sony and PlayStation are thinking long term when it comes to mobile games; The announcement states that the director of mobile devices will work with the leadership team of PlayStation Studios to “develop a roadmap for mobile products over a period of 3 to 5 years”, although it also mentions that the position involves the management of a “Existing list of mobile devices already in development.” . “
It would not be entirely unthinkable for PlayStation to bring some of its most popular franchises to mobile devices. PlayStation Mobile Inc. previously released a mobile version of Uncharted with the puzzle adventure Uncharted: Fortune Hunter. The company also featured the popular character Sackboy in the endless runner Run, Sackboy, Run!
You may recall that PlayStation Mobile was announced in 2012 with the intention of “providing all PlayStation certified smartphone or tablet owners an attractive gateway to the world of PlayStation and giving PlayStation Vita players the opportunity to expand their collection. with a series of innovative and affordable titles. “That company ended in 2015.
