First with Sony Interactive Entertainment, a division that concentrates PlayStation and business networks, as well as the creation of the company ForwardWorks, which would be in charge only of the 'smartphone games'. And today we finally have a tentative date to meet the first games for smartphones Sony: March 2018.
Currently only for Japan and Asia
According to information collected Nikkei and Reuters , Sony plans to launch five games or more by the end of March 2018 , games which will be unique to the iOS and Android platforms and will be based on famous franchises of the company.
Sony Interactive Entertainment will adapt some classic video games of Playstation and ForwardWorks will be responsible for marketing and distribution platforms. It is estimated that by the end of this year Sony announced the titles that come developing and premiering the company in the video game market for smartphones.
The bad news is that by the time these games would only be directed to the Japanese and Asian markets, where still no information on a possible launch for the rest of the world.
