PlayStation Have Bought Another Studio, Promise More AAA Games

PlayStation Have Bought Another Studio, Promise More AAA Games

PlayStation announced that it has bought Savage Games Studio, who will be joining a new PlayStation Studios Mobile Division.

What’s that, did someone say another games industry acquisition is happening? That’s right, although it’s not the EA one we were all anticipating on Friday. PlayStation has once again added to its lineup with the acquisition of Savage Game Studios.

“Today, we announced that we have entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Savage Game Studios, a hugely talented team of creatives with many years of experience making some of the most popular mobile games enjoyed by players around the world,” head of PlayStation Studios, Hermen Hulst, wrote on the PlayStation Blog. “They were founded a few years ago with the goal of fearlessly exploring bold new ideas. We share their tireless ambition to innovate, along with a continued drive to expand our audience and bring PlayStation to more people than ever before, making them a perfect fit to join PlayStation Studios.”

Hulst added that amongst the aim to expand PlayStation’s selection of games available on PC, there are plans to expand the studio’s mobile gaming efforts, “providing more ways for more people to engage with our content, and striving to reach new audiences unfamiliar with PlayStation and our games”. As such, Savage Game Studios will specifically be joining a new PlayStation Studios Mobile Division, which will operate totally independently from the development of console games, and “focus on innovative, on-the-go experiences based on new and existing PlayStation IP”. 

“We made this deal because we believe that PlayStation Studios’ leadership respects our vision for how we can best operate and succeed, and because they too are not afraid to take chances,” Michail Katkoff, Savage Games’ CEO and co-founder wrote. “All of that, plus the ability to potentially tap into PlayStation’s amazing catalog of IP and the fact that we will benefit from the kind of support that only they can provide.”

Wrapping up the announcement, it was confirmed that Savage Game Studios is already working on an unannounced AAA mobile live service game - we’ll just have to wait and see what it is.
