The giant finally confirmed these rumors at the latest corporate strategy meeting, in which Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan said, “We’ve been thinking about how gamers enjoy our content and have had some initial success with experimenting with mobile games and apps to provide more choice for gamers. ”Ryan added the following:
The mobile market is just one of the areas we are exploring to reach millions of players beyond our target platforms.

We are exploring the mobile market with some wonderful PlayStation franchises, so stay tuned.
Given how profitable the mobile industry has been for Nintendo (and given that Xbox will cope with the Game Pass Cloud options), it’s no surprise to see Sony move in this direction as well. While there are some PlayStation sagas that may not necessarily make the move to mobile (not a mobile game anyone would want to play, anyway), there are several games that would fit pretty well in this industry, the reference being, in particular, to Sly Cooper e Jak & Daxter.
