Masaaki Yamagiwa, the producer of projects such as Bloodborne, Deracine, and Tokyo Jungle, is leaving Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Studio at the end of February, he announced on Twitter.
Yamagiwa did not elaborate on his plans for the future.
Yamagiwa’s departure is the latest in a series of high-profile departures from Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Studio. Teruyuki Toriyama, who also produced Bloodborne, a remake of Demon’s Souls, Soul Sacrifice, and other games, left Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Studio back in December. And the creator of Silent Hill, Siren, and Gravity Rush, Keiichiro Toyama, and colleagues Kazunobu Sato and Junya Okura left earlier this month to form the independent Bokeh Game Studio.
