Another key Team Ico collaborator leaves Sony
Another key Team Ico collaborator leaves Sony
August 27, 2012 | By Eric Caoili

As Sony's struggles to ship The Last Guardian continue, another key employee who's worked with the team behind the troubled PlayStation 3 game has resigned from the company.

Kenji Kaido tweeted on Monday morning that he left Sony Computer Entertainment Japan this month. It's unclear if he was working on The Last Guardian, but he was a producer on Team Ico's previous acclaimed titles like Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.

Team Ico's latest project The Last Guardian has faced a number of delays and difficulties, including the departures of producer Yoshifusa Hayama and director Fumito Ueda -- though the latter is no longer a Sony employee, he's still working on the game on a contractual basis.

After opting not to bring the game to several trade shows with its other upcoming releases, Sony recently admitted that its Tokyo team has faced "technical difficulties" with The Last Guardian. The publisher has brought in Sony Santa Monica and other Western developers to assist with the title.

Kaido has said that his "plans for the future are undecided" currently, according to GameLife's translation of his tweet. Gamasutra has reached out to Sony for a comment on his resignation, but has yet to hear back as of press time.
