While many are still waiting to get their hands on PlayStation 5, it has been reported that Sony is working on bringing PlayStation (PS) games to mobile. PS5 is currently out of stock in many parts of the world including India, keeping many from playing PS exclusive games.

While the company has not officially announced its plans, the requirements and roles of the position gives an indication of what Sony has in mind. According to the job listing, the Head of Mobile will be responsible for leading every aspect relating to the adaptation of its PC and console games for mobile devices.
