SIE Japan Studio is no more – the oldest Japanese studio PlayStation has ceased to exist

The company Sony Interactive Entertainment has completed the reorganization of its oldest Japanese studio SIE Japan Studio. Only a small team, Team Asobi, remains from it, which will be engaged in the development of games in the Astro Bot universe.

Previously, the PlayStation management noted that it helps SIE Japan Studio employees find work in its other divisions, and invites some specialists directly to Team Asobi, but judging by the whole parade of layoffs, not all veterans were interested in this.

Gravity Rush character designer Shunsuke Saito resigned from Sony in Japan yesterday, followed today by Demon’s Souls remake creative director Gavin Moore, and Bloodborne producer Masami Yamamoto announced the opening of his own studio, EPIGRAsm.

The actual disbandment process for SIE Japan Studio began in 2020. Some of the employees went to work at Bokeh Game Studio to the creator of Silent Hill and Gravity Rush Keiichiro Toyama. Together they are already working on a new multi-platform horror game.

As of today, the formation of the “SIE Japan Studio” no longer exists. Heading the studio in 2020, game designer Nicolas Duce, who created Astorobot, is now listed as the head of Team Asobi.
