The ForwardWorks division of Sony will handle the mobile game development as confirmed by the company early this year. However, no additional details were provided since then. According to reports, Sony has taken some interest in mobile gaming before; although it appears that the company is likely ready now for some innovative steps.
Moreover, Sony is also rumored to bring games that are not available on current-gen consoles, which means the classic games from PS3 and PS Vita may also be confirmed as the company’s first mobile games. The confirmation is believed to happen by the end of 2016. There are also speculations that the 2016 Sony PlayStation Experience event may be the platform to make the major announcement.
