Ico, Shadow of the Colossus producer leaves Sony

Kenji Kaido confirms Sony departure

Sony Computer Entertainment producer Kenji Kaido has left the company, he confirmed via Twitter today.


"I retired from the SCE in this August," reads the Tweet (via Google Translate, Andriasang). "Plans for the future is still undecided," adds Kaido, who is "going to continue to summer vacation".

Kaido joined SCE in 1997, where served as producer on both Ico and Shadow of the Colossus from Team ICO. It's unclear what he's been up to since, or whether he was working on Team ICO's third game, The Last Guardian, which has had a hard enough time as it is, with big-name resignations and seemingly endless delays related to development issues.
