Sony’s MLB The Show 22 could be available for mobile based on new recruitments

Sony is looking for a Mobile graphics expert with interest in baseball.

June 2021 saw Sony PlayStation boss Jim Ryan stating that Sony is actively exploring mobile games from the collection of PlayStation franchises. He said, “exploring the mobile market with some wonderful PlayStation franchises, so please stay tuned.” Now the company’s San Diego Studio and MLB The Show team is recruiting a mobile graphics expert with a specific interest in baseball, with experience in mobile application development for Android and iOS. This inspires a twist that Sony’s MLB The Show 22 will be available soon for mobile devices.

Over the last few years, users have seen companies trying to expand their horizons, by including more platforms. Sony’s San Diego Studios have developed a franchise with MLB The Show 21 and made its way to the Xbox platform for the first time in history. Earlier last week, the company confirmed that it will add Nintendo Switch to the supported consoles which will be launched with MLB The Show 22.

Sony’s recruitments signal towards the mobile release of MLB The Show 22

MLB The Show 22 is already on Nintendo Switch, and also on PS Vita with prior entries. The recruitment would also be aimed at any other companion app. There are high chances of Sony to port the series into smartphones, as baseball fits perfectly for the touchscreen gameplay-based controls.

Although, there has not been any official statement about this, although, imagining the outcome is not hard. Sony has had a mobile division for its games, which was only shut down after one or two years into PS4’s entry. With the coming of April 2021, Sony was discovered looking for a Head of Mobile for its PlayStation division, the responsibilities included expanding the game development of console and PC to Mobile and live services.

This listing is no longer available, which nonetheless means the role has been filled. The new recruitment sheds light on Sony’s possible attempt to get into the mobile platforms with MLB The Show 22 as their first release. Players can pre-order MLB The Show 22 which will be available from the 5th of May, 2022.
