Shawn Layden

The former head of Sony's Worldwide Studios left the company rather abruptly in late September, without a reason given. While there wasn't much of a suggestion of ill will between the two parties, it's nice to know that Shawn Layden's departure hasn't left behind any bad blood.

The man himself has been active on Twitter for the past couple of hours, wishing his former colleagues all the very best in their new roles. Guerrilla Games' Hermen Hulst is now head of PlayStation's Worldwide Studios while Shuhei Yoshida has shifted positions into a role which will see him "look after and nurture external, smaller independent studios".
