Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that Shuhei Yoshida will now lead an initiative at PlayStation to better support external developers making games, similarly to how Santa Monica Studio and Japan Studio help developers in their region to future progress their games for release.
I am thrilled to announce Shu Yoshida as head of this new initiative. Everybody knows just how passionate Shu is about independent games – they are lifeblood of the industry, making our content portfolio so special for our gamers. These wildly creative experiences deserve focus and a champion like Shu at PlayStation who will ensure the entire SIE organization works together to better engage with independent developers through a culture of supporting and celebrating their contributions to PlayStation platform. Jim Ryan, President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment
We wish the best for Shuhei!
