PlayStation Studios seems to have a new head of its mobile division, Nicola Sebastiani, who previously was the content head of Apple Arcade. The appointment is in line with Sony’s plans to bring more IPs to mobile.
Although PlayStation hasn’t publicly commented on it yet, the information appeared on Sebastiani’s LinkedIn page and was spotted by Video Games Chronicle.
According to a description, Sebastiani became the vice president and head of mobile at PlayStation Studios in July. Prior to that, he worked as the Apple Arcade head of content at Apple and the digital product manager at Ubisoft.
PlayStation Studios started to look for the head of its mobile division in April. According to the job description, Nicola Sebastiani will “lead all aspects of the expansion of our game development from consoles and PCs to mobile & Live Services with a focus on successfully adapting PlayStation’s most popular franchises for mobile.”
In May, Sony said that it will adapt more successful IPs for mobile platforms. This move should help the company expand the reach of its popular franchises and strengthen its position in the market.
