Bloodborne producer Masaaki Yamagiwa leaves Sony Japan Studio. The studio loses another big shot.

The announcement comes via the Twitter profile of the producer Yamagiwa himself who, thanks to a photo taken outside the offices, communicates:

“I will be leaving Sony Interactive Entertainment at the end of this month, but will continue to work hard to create new games. Thank you all!"

This is the umpteenth loss within Sony Japan Studio, after the farewell of Keiichiro Toyama - author of Silent Hill, Siren, Gravity Rush - and producer of Demon's Souls Teruyuki Toriyama, and this can only make us think of a period of internal turmoil within the company.

Hopes to see a sequel to Bloodborne are fading more and more, also thanks to the years of deathly silence that separate us from the exclusive PS4.
