In the wake of the news that Sony’s Japan Studio is reorganising, another producer has left the company. This time, it’s Masami Yamamoto, who made his debut as a producer on the Tenchu series.
Yamamoto would go on to work on a number of titles, including Tokyo Jungle, Soul Sacrifice, and Bloodborne.
On Twitter, Yamamoto revealed that he left Japan Studio on February 28, bringing a close to a 25-year-career at Sony. “Well, from now on I can make games for any platform…,” he wrote. “What a strange sensation!”
As Kotaku previously reported, a number of high-profile creators have left Japan Studio. In an official statement, Sony wrote that it was reorganising the studio in order to “further strengthen business operations.”
