PlayStation Has Acquired Savage Game Studios

A mobile studio!

PlayStation has announced that it has acquired Savage Game Studio, a German mobile game developer. The announcement was made on the PlayStation Blog. 

The studio will be responsible for developing innovative, on-the-go experiences based on existing PlayStation IP and also new IP. The studio will run totally independently to PlayStation’s console/PC studios.

It was said that the studio is already working on a game, but it’s too early to show it at this point.

Head of PlayStation Studios Hermen Hulst said: “I’m thrilled to welcome Savage Game Studios. They join a new independent PlayStation Studios Mobile Division whose mission is to reach even more new players around the world. Michail and his team are already working on something great; I can’t wait until they can show you.”

PlayStation celebrated announcement with the below message talking about its current PlayStation slate which now involves mobile.

“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. 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.

As we assured you before with our plans to bring select titles to PC, our efforts beyond console in no way diminish our commitment to the PlayStation community, nor our passion to keep making amazing single-player, narrative-driven experiences. It’s been a tremendous year for games on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, with huge releases including Horizon Forbidden WestGran Turismo 7MLB The Show 22, and on November 9th, the highly anticipated God of War: Ragnarok. PlayStation VR2 is also on the horizon, and promises a huge leap forward in presence and immersion, bolstered by best-in-class software like Horizon: Call of the Mountain. We’re proud of our upcoming releases on PC as well, with Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection and Marvel’s Spider-Man giving gamers without PlayStation hardware a taste of our amazing library of first-party titles.

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 is joining a newly created PlayStation Studios Mobile Division, which will operate independently from our console development and focus on innovative, on-the-go experiences based on new and existing PlayStation IP.

I hope you’ll join me in welcoming Savage Game Studios into the fold, and that those of you who enjoy mobile gaming in addition to console or PC will look forward to what they have in store. They’re already working on a new unannounced AAA mobile live service action game. It’s too early to reveal more, but I’m so excited for when they’ll be able to.”
