Developer exodus to social gaming continues with The Last Guardian producer; Is Fumito Ueda next?

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.

  1. These dudes' presence always seemed like one of those "too good to be true" moments in videogames. I consider myself lucky to have been graced by their work 3 times, and hopefully the count doesn't stop there (though it could, and I'd still be satisfied.) Can't wait to see what they're up to next... especially Ueda.
