Sony wants to bring ‘popular’ PlayStation game franchises to phones

If you consider one-offs like Uncharted: Fortune Hunter, Sony hasn’t done much for PlayStation title franchises, but that might change eventually. Sony is hiring an executive at PlayStation Studios who will work on taking PlayStation’s “most famous franchises” to smartphones, according to Eurogamer. Although there are no names or timeframes included in the listing, the current Head of Mobile will ddevelop a three- to five-year strategy.

The corporation has a long history of attempting but failing, to merge the PlayStation brand with smartphones. Apart from a few titles, Sony’s most well-known product is the Xperia Play, a “PlayStation handheld” that was ahead of its time (see gaming phones like the ROG Phone 5) but a commercial flop. PlayStation Mobile is best known for PC ports such as Horizon Zero Dawn.

It’s easy to see why Sony will be interested in phones. It has the potential to introduce the PlayStation name to a far larger audience while still profiting from in-app purchases. Mobile players are responsible for a significant portion of the popularity of games like Fortnite, PUBG, and Roblox. Of course, putting the technique into action is the difficult part. The games themselves must transition to mobile without missing their unique features.
