Yoshifusa Hayama, who was producing Sony Japan’s upcoming The Last Guardian, has resigned his position as executive producer at Team Ico for a creative directing job at the London-based Tech City studio Bossa. His first project is a 3D social game.
According to Hayama, the future of gaming “is definitely online and thanks to recent developments with Flash 11, there is no reason why a social game can no longer be as visually stunning and as compelling as the big console titles.”
Last week, rumors emerged claiming Fumito Ueda, director of the upcoming Team Ico threequel, had left the company to pursue personal projects, though, is still working on The Last Guardian as a freelancer. Sony has yet to confirm or deny these rumors.
