Veteran executive and PlayStation Head of Internal Production Connie Booth has officially parted ways with Sony. And although the reasons and circumstances surrounding the departure remain maddeningly unclear, we at least now have confirmation of the rumours that began swirling last weekend.

In a statement provided to Axios, PlayStation thanked Booth for her hard work and many achievements, noting that she "helped drive the success PlayStation Studios is experiencing today and her passion in fostering an environment where a team's creative vision could fully flourish has left a positive impact on many game developers." Booth's career at PlayStation began in 1996, and her list of credited work is seriously impressive reading.

"We're thankful for Connie's numerous contributions to the company and wish her the best in future endeavours."

As has been suggested, it's likely that Booth simply needed a change of scenery or is ready for a break from what is a notoriously demanding industry. We'd echo PlayStation's sentiment and wish her all the best in future endeavours, and thank her for her tireless work in shaping our beloved platform.
