PlayStation has announced that Worldwide Studios head Shawn Layden will be leaving Sony Interactive Entertainment after more than three decades .

“It is with great emotion that we announce that Worldwide Studios Chairman Shawn Layden will be departing SIE,” PlayStation confirmed on Twitter.

“His visionary leadership will be greatly missed. We wish him success in future endeavors and are deeply grateful for his years of service. Thanks for everything, Shawn!”
