The creative director being the PS5’s Demon’s Souls Remake, Gavin Moore, has revealed that he’s left SIE Japan Studio after more than 20 years with the company.
Speaking on Twitter today, Moore commented:
After 24 years at Sony and 18 of those in Japan, yesterday was my last day at #JAPANStudio. I will miss the great creative spirit and camaraderie of the studio that was a huge part of my life. Time to seek out new and exciting opportunities!
Moore’s departure is the latest in a long line of exists at Sony’s Japanese studio, as the company refocuses its efforts around Astro Bot developer, Team Asobi.
Just yesterday, the character design for Gravity Rush announced he had left Sony Japan, and earlier in the year, a number of key staff members on the Bloodborne team confirmed they were jumping ship, including Masaaki Yamagiwa and Teruyuki Toriyama.
One of the biggest departures came in December 2020, when Silent Hill creator and Gravity Rush head honcho Keiichiro Toyama announced he was leaving to form his own studio, Bokeh Game Studio.
