Sony Interactive Entertainment to Acquire Mobile Savage Game Studios

Sony Interactive Entertainment acquired Savage Game Studios, a mobile game development studio with offices in Helsinki, Finland, and Berlin, Germany.

The amount of the deal was not disclosed.

With the acquisition, Sony will deliver innovative experiences to new players around the world by expanding to additional platforms, and continue to focus on fostering the industry’s creatives.

Led by veteran co-founders Michail Katkoff (Rovio, Zynga, Fun Plus, Supercell), Nadjim Adjir (Wargaming, Rovio, Gree), and Michael McManus (Wargaming, Insomniac, Kabam), Savage Game Studios will join the newly created PlayStation Studios Mobile Division, an independent operation from console development. The PlayStation Studios Mobile team is focused on creating new experiences for players through innovative, on-the-go gaming based on new and existing PlayStation IP that meets PlayStation Studios’ high-quality standards. SIE’s efforts to reach gamers wherever they play – be that mobile, PC, or live service offerings – will continue to complement its existing expertise building unparalleled single-player, narrative-driven AAA console games.

The day-to-day operations post-acquisition will continue to be run by Savage Game Studios’ current management team.
