Sony Music to publish games on Switch and PC through new Unties label

Sony Music to publish games on Switch and PC through new Unties label

October 17, 2017 | By Chris Kerr




Sony Music Entertainment is turning into a multi-platform games publisher and intends to bring a selection of indie titles to platforms incluidng the Nintendo Switch and PC. 

The company has formed a new games publishing label called Unties to "penetrate the ever-expanding video game market with indie games." 

Turn-based tactics effort Tiny Metal will be one of the first titles released through the label, and will be heading to PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC. 

Some of Unties' other upcoming releases -- like Merkava Avalanche and Last Standard -- are slated for release on "PC/TBA," meaning other platforms could also be brought into the fold. 

"Recent progress in the game development world has made it possible for even small-scale production teams to create high-quality games," reads a translated press release (thanks PlayStation LifeStyle).

"The evolution of digital publishing has also made it possible for creators to deliver their own titles to consumers all around the world, which spawned an indie game movement centered around North America.

"Conversely, this has created an unfortunate side effect where certain creative, unique titles end up getting buried in the market without getting the proper exposure they deserve. Unties hopes to unearth high-quality titles like these and utilize Sony Music's vast entertainment business wisdom in order to expose them to as many consumers as possible."
