Sony ForwardWorks may be preparing to announce its first mobile games and partnerships on December 7th.

This is according to a tweet from the Wall Street Journal's technology reporter Takashi Mochizuki. The tweet simply states that Sony will make the announcement at 4pm, December 7th.

Mochizuki has also claimed that ForwardWorks will be releasing up to six games across its 2017 fiscal year. He suggested titles like Hot Shots Golf and The Last Guardian could make the jump to mobile.

Welcome to the future

Sony's ForwardWorks studio was established back in March 2016. The studio was created to develop mobile titles based on Sony franchises for the Asia market.

Sony CEO Kaz Hirai has previously stated that the company would be targeting mobile aggressively. He has also hinted at an interest in augmented reality technology, claiming it would "lift all boats for the video game industry".
