As long it doesn’t affect PlayStation core, it would be fine. Right now, Sony is happy with their SP games like Horizon Zero Dawn and God of War are doing pretty well, so I think Sony will keep that core.

Sony has to continue to grow and expand their gaming bussiness. As long it doesn´t affect Playstation consoles, i don´t see nothing wrong with their new focus on mobile.

Would Sony launch some games on Switch?

Sony Unties (Sony Music Entertainment) is a third-party game publisher (not part of PlayStation) who focus on smaller titles designed for multiple platforms. They already released some game for the switch.
