What is known

According to

Eurogamer, Leiden worked with the PlayStation brandsince 1987, becoming the unspoken face of the company at E3. Until 2018, he served as the boss of Sony Computer Entertainment America, and then headed SIE Worldwide Studios, the gaming division of PlayStation. Under the supervision of Leyden, the exclusive Detroit: Become Human, God of War and Days Gone were released.

“It is with great excitement that we announce thatWorldwide Studios Chairman Shawn Layden will leave SIE. We will miss his wise leadership. We wish him well in his future endeavors and are deeply grateful for his years of service. Thanks for everything, Sean!” the official PlayStation account wrote.

It is not yet known who will take Sean's chair, but Sonynever explained the reason for the employee’s departure. At the same time, Gematsu noticed that the president of the Japanese division of SIE, Atsushi Morita, also left his post, giving way to Kazuhiko Taekda. According to journalists, the second half of the fiscal year for Japanese companies begins on October 1, which also means personnel changes. Perhaps Shawn Layden was also influenced by an internal "perestroika".
