Sony Is Acquiring Savage Game Studios

Sony announced it is acquiring mobile game developer Savage Game Studios and revealed the formation of a new PlayStation Studios Mobile Division. 

On Monday, Sony announced it has entered into an agreement to acquire mobile game developer Savage Game Studios. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Savage Game Studios will join PlayStation Studios and will be part of the newly formed PlayStation Studios Mobile Division which will operate independently from the company's console business and will focus on creating mobile titles based on either new IP or existing PlayStation IP.

Savage was founded in 2020 by veterans with prior experience at Rockstar, Insomniac Games, Rovio, and Next Games. The studio has offices in Helsinki and Berlin and the team is already working on an unannounced "AAA mobile live service action game." Sony hasn't shared any details on the upcoming title but said it will reveal more when Savage "will be able to."

"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," Savage Game Studios CEO and co-founder Michail Katkoff said. "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."

"They were founded a few years ago with the goal of fearlessly exploring bold new ideas," PlayStation Studios head Herman Hulst said of Savage. "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 also assured PlayStation fans that with the acquisition of Savage and creating a new mobile games division, Sony is not going to shift its focus away from its traditional console market. Instead, Sony's mobile gaming efforts are set to ensure that more people engage with the company's games.
