Last month, Kotaku reported that another manufacturer travelled from Japan Studio. And this month we report that the emigration continues.
Yesterday, Shunsuke Saito twitret, “I am leaving SIE Japan Studio today.” Saito was the character designer and animator for Gravity Rush 1 and 2. He was also the art director for the sequel. His departure is a great artistic loss for the studio.
Kentaro Motomura also announced yesterday that he left Japan Studio, where the veteran developer was a senior producer with credits on a number of titles including Nye Minna no Golf, Blood-borne, Soul Sacrifice, Wild Arms, and Drained, among many others.
Update 07:45: Yasutaka Asakura, a producer at Japan Studio, just announced he leaves, and Gavin Moore, who has been with Sony for 24 years, has done so also revealed this is his last day in the studio.
As Kotaku previously reported, a number of high-profile creators have left Japan Studio. IN an official statement, Sony wrote that it reorganized the studio to “further strengthen business operations.”
