Adam Boyes leaving Sony role to return to development

Self-publishing head moving back to the front lines

Adam Boyes, the charismatic head of PlayStation's self-publishing indie drive over the last four years, is leaving the company to return to front line game development.

Announcing the move on Twitter, Boyes was coy about exactly where he's heading, or if he'll be starting his own studio, but was keen to pay tribute to players and developers alike, saying that he was leaving the team in great hands for the future.

"The past 4+ years have been an absolutely amazing experience," wrote the Canadian. "I'd like to start out by thanking the incredible PlayStation Nation fans!

"The best news is that we have an incredible team here so the development & publishing community & gamers are in GREAT hands!"

Boyes was previously at publisher Capcom, before a brief stint at Beefy Media. Sony hired him in 2012.

Update: Boyes later clarified that he's going to work with an independent developer.
