Last Guardian producer quits for social pastures new

Executive producer on The Last Guardian, Yoshifusa Hayama, has left Sony in order to join up at London based, Bossa Studios.

Hayama certainly has had a colourful past at Sony, having worked on ICO and previously being the VP at Sony Computer Entertainment for four years. He also, at one point, work on the Final Fantasy series.

“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,” Hayama said.

“Together at Bossa we have plans to bring a plethora of games to Facebook and eventually other appropriate social media channels, which include 3D elements and can be enjoyed by all age and interest groups.”

This news comes after it was rumour that Team ICO head Fumito Ueda had left Sony, although he is still thought to be working with Team ICO to complete The Last Guardian, albeit in a freelance capacity.
