Over the past few years, Sony has been focused on releasing games for its PlayStation 4 console, abandoning the PlayStation Vita and PC games. But with the recent announcement, the company has announced a new publishing label that will release games for not just the PlayStation 4, but also for PC and the Nintendo Switch.
The label is called “Unties,” which is part of Sony Music Entertainment (instead of Sony Interactive Entertainment) and will serve small development teams looking to get their games to a bigger audience. The first game releasing under the new label is named Tiny Metal, a strategy game arriving this fall.
Following games to come from Unties include the 3D action game, Last Standard, coming to PC and other to-be-announced consoles, Merkava Avalanche, a 3D robot action game for PC and possibly other platforms, and the PS4 game Deemo -Reborn- (working title), to be available with VR compatibility via PSVR.
Sony PlayStation itself, meanwhile, announced earlier last year its intention to branch out into mobile publishing, with games based on popular Sony franchises coming to smartphones this year in Japan.
