PlayStation changes its leadership as the now-former President of PlayStation Worldwide Studios steps down, Shuhei Yoshida. Yoshida is not leaving Sony; however, he is aiming to take charge of overseeing the development and success of more independent studios across Sony’s gaming networks.
In the recent press release, Sony says that it will be “led by PlayStation veteran Shuhei Yoshida and focused on celebrating external developers that are creating new and unexpected experiences for the gaming community.” Sony aims to add just as much focus on smaller studios as it does towards its more AAA developers.
In replacement, Hermen Hulst, director, and co-founder of Guerilla Games, the development team that gave us Horizon Zero Dawn, will replace Yoshida and take leadership of future PlayStation ventures. In the press release, Hulst says “I have the utmost respect and admiration for the creative talent and ambitious ideas within the network of studios across the US, Europe, and Japan.”
This is going to be a new age for PlayStation, we all should be excited and curious as to what Sony has in store for us. This new leadership will evolve the PlayStation brand into something greater, and pivot the idea of PlayStation into a more compelling direction.
