Hideki Kamiya has launched a YouTube Channel in wake of his departure from PlatinumGames, and posted a picture of him leaving the studio in stylish fashion via a Lamborghini.
The Resident Evil 2 director announced his departure from the company that he co-founded 15 years ago last month, admitting he feels “very refreshed” after stepping down. Most importantly, he confirmed that he doesn’t have any plans to retire from the games industry.
I am Hideki Kamiya, unemployed. Welcome to my channel. I’m out of a job, so please subscribe. I feel very refreshed after leaving [Platinum]. I’ve been watching Netflix, Disney Plus, YouTube and stuff like that. I’ve already lost track of what day it is. I haven’t been to work for a while. I think it’s been about three months since I decided to quit. Once I decided to leave, I had to clean up all these toys and stuff like that. Once I finished cleaning, I was at home with my paid vacation.
To be super clear, I’m not retiring, as long as there’s a place that would hire me, so you know… I’m gonna wait for the offer. I will consider ANY OFFER ABOVE 100 million yen ($670,650) a year. So if there’s any company that would like to make an offer, Please contact me HERE!
Kamiya-san has worked on a number of major video games in his extensive career, including Resident Evil 2, Devil May Cry, Viewtiful Joe, Bayonetta, The Wonderful 101, and the cancelled Scalebound.
