ICO, Shadow Of The Colossus Producer Departs Sony
First Fumito Ueda and now one of his right-hand men.
As reported at Andriasang, Kenji Kaido has revealed via Twitter that he's leaving Sony Computer Entertainment this month. That's too bad.
This is significant because he worked alongside Ueda as a producer on two of the industry's most beloved titles, ICO and Shadow of the Colossus. He wouldn't say what he plans to do after leaving Sony; for now, he says he's on vacation and that's where he'll stay for a little while. Unfortunately, there's no way to know if Kaido was involved in The Last Guardian, Ueda's latest project that has received plenty of attention as of late due to development difficulties. Sony confirmed that the game was still in development and it'll still come to the PS3.
Right now, that's about all we know. Maybe we'll get an official update on the game at the Tokyo Game Show next month. We won't read too much into Kaido's departure, as we're not sure if this has any impact on Guardian.
