Gio Corsi, the head of Global Second Party Games at Sony Interactive Entertainment, left PlayStation as of last week, Corsi announced.

Here is the full departure message from Corsi:

It’s been a hell of a ride but last week was my final one at PlayStation. I’m taking some time off but I will be back in games soon enough. I’m extremely proud of all the amazing things we accomplished. Big love to everyone past and present who made my time there truly special.

I want to thank Adam Boyes and Phil Rosenberg for giving me a shot with Third-Party Productions and #buildingthelist! Also John T. Drake, Brad Douglas, @the_femur, Don Sechler, Shawne Benson, Carter Lipscomb, and Brian Silva, and the rest of the Third-Party Productions family for all the memorable dev and pub adventures.

Also want to thank Scott Rohde, Shawn Layden, and Shuhei Yoshida for all the Second Party love and guidance. Speaking of Second Party, a big thanks to John Sanders, Christine Converse, and Alicifer Spookaber for joining the Second Party team! You are all the best and you will continue to knock it outta the park!

Finally, a hearty thank-you to all the great devs, pubs, partners, friends, and fans who made my time at PlayStation so memorable… so many cool moments. From all the titles, to all the shows, as I said, it was a hell of a ride! Thanks for it all and long love the Vita!
