It is still unknown who will take Sean’s chair, and Sonynever explained the reason for the employee’s departure. At the same time, Gematsu noticed that the president of the Japanese SIE division, Atsushi Morita, also resigned, losing his chair to Kazuhiko Taekda. According to reporters, on October 1, the second half of the fiscal year for Japanese companies begins, which also means staff changes. Perhaps Sean Leiden also came under the influence of an internal “restructuring”.
