Ico Dev. Leaves Sony


Rumors have been floating around for the last fortnite (heh heh) of Ico creator’s Fumito Ueda’s departure from Sony.  Those rumors are confirmed today.  Ueda has been working for Sony since ’97 and has contributed to some of the most beautiful games ever created.  Ico and Shadow of the Colossus are gorgeous titles with a little brother on the way: The Last Guardian which is due at the end of 2012.  These are, in fact, the only games that Ueda has contributed to since working for Sony.

His departure appears to be a move to bigger and better places, but he will remain on board to finish development of The Last Guardian on a contractual basis.  There is no news yet as to where Ueda is going.  Gamasutra
