In a Monday morning press release, Sony announced that it will acquire Savage Game Studios under its newly formed PlayStation Studios Mobile Divison — a division that develops mobile games independently of Sony’s console development team.
Savage Game Studios, with offices in Helsinki and Berlin, is already working on an unannounced “AAA mobile live service action game”. The company’s co-founders have previously worked with mobile game studios Rovio, Zynga, Supercell, Wargaming and Insomniac.
I am delighted to welcome Savage Game Studios. They have joined a new indie PlayStation Studios mobile division with a mission to reach more new players around the world. Michail and his team are already doing some great things. I can’t wait for them to show you. https://t.co/HpPOmFvs
