Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Asia president Atsushi Morita has officially retired from the company as of yesterday.
Morita's successor has not yet been announced. However, his additional role as corporate director has already been filled by Sony Interactive Entertainment deputy president and CFO Kazuhiko Takeda according to the announcement.
In his time at Sony, Morita has worked as VP of administration and control as well as in other roles before taking on the position of president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Japan (before the reconfiguration to Sony Interactive Entertainment) in 2014. His activities since have included leading mobile-focused Sony subsidiary ForwardWorks.
This news follows yesterday's announcement that Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios chairman Shawn Layden is also departing the company, though the reasons behind his departure, his successor, and his future plans are currently unknown.
