Outgoing Sony Europe president David Reeves has said that before last week he'd never heard of Scottish game developer Realtime Worlds.
It had been rumoured that the exec would be joining the APB and Crackdown developer after he retired from Sony at the end of the week.
"I've never even heard of the company. I didn't even know who they were," said Reeves, speaking to GamesIndustry.biz.
"I hope that answers the question. I've never, ever heard of them. Definitely not."
Realtime Worlds today appointed Take-Two, Rockstar and Capcom vet Gary Dale as its new CEO.
