The company sees further investments in the PC, mobile, and live service segments as a great possibility to bolster its gaming business.
Sony is planning to make more investments in its gaming business to bolster its push into PC and mobile. That's according to the head of PlayStation Studios Hermen Hulst who stated that the company sees further investments in the PC, mobile, and live service segments as a great possibility.
"Further investments in areas that will strengthen the expansion on to PC, on to mobile and into live services, that's definitely a possibility for us," Hulst told Reuters. The executive, however, didn't elaborate on the statement.
Sony, which previously focused on creating games for consoles, outlined its new strategy in May revealing its ambition to expand into PC and mobile as well as live service games.
Sony's increased focus on live games, PC, and mobile is already reflected in the company's recent acquisition of Halo and Destiny creator Bungie. The company's investments also include the purchase of a minority stake in Elden Ring and Dark Souls developer FromSoftware.
Speaking of the latter investment, Hulst noted that this purchase was made, first of all, from the consideration of "collaborations on the game development side", however, he stated that "it's also not unthinkable with [...] PlayStation Productions efforts that [the company explores] opportunities."
