The Last Guardian producer Yoshifusa Hayama has left Sony for social games company Bossa Studios, reports Gamasutra. With his departure came rumors that famed developer Fumito Ueda, the creative force behind Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, was also leaving; rumors which were confirmed several days ago. Ueda will complete his work on The Last Guardian before leaving Sony. However, where he will turn up is not yet known.
Hayama's shift to social games follows the exodus of several very high-profile Japanese game designers -- among them Yuji Naka, Keiji Inafune, Goichi Suda, and Yoshifumi Hashimoto -- in the same direction1.
