Nintendo has already taken the leap by bringing several of its cult licenses to mobile phones, and will continue to do so thanks to a partnership with Niantic. Other major publishers do so occasionally, whileActivision-Blizzard also intends to build on this market, with Call of Duty Mobile, Crash Bandicoot: On the Run!, Diablo Immortals and even more. Xbox made him the bet of cloud gaming via the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and It seems like Playstation prepare his answer.
