Several video game industry veterans join Sony Interactive Entertainment’s mobile team.
Almost a year after announcing plans to extend PlayStation licensing to mobile, Sony Interactive Entertainment created a team dedicated to games for smartphones by appointing Nicola Sebastiani, former head of content for the Apple Arcade subscription and head of commercial management of games for the App Store, as its head. The latter brought back Kris Davis, ex-director of business development at Kabam, Olivier Courtemanche, ex-head of mobile product at Disney and Zynga, as well as producers Chris Spencer (EA Chillingo) and Elizabeth Dumbrique (Glu Mobile).
