Guerrilla Games' Hermen Hulst: new head of Worldwide Studios at PlayStation

Guerrilla Games' Hermen Hulst: new head of Worldwide Studios at PlayStation”

Meanwhile, the new head of Worldwide Studios Herman Hulst will be charged with overseeing the creative and strategic direction of the 14 studios that Sony owns, including Naughty Dog, Media Molecule and Insomniac. Yoshida will step down from his role as head of Sony Worldwide Studios and will be replaced by Guerrilla Games' Hermen Hulst.

"I am indeed very excited to officially announce and formalise Malaysia's partnership with SIE WWS".

Making the comments to GamesIndustry.biz, Ryan said that PlayStation was "always looking" to strengthen their first-party portfolio, even if its team was "careful about who we look at and talk to". "I have no doubt Hermen can lead our teams to deliver compelling and diverse experiences at a steady cadence". This means that upcoming first-party PS4 games such as The Last of Us Part II and Ghost of Tsushima aren't going to be featured on PS Now at launch.

Guerrilla Games' studio director Hermen Hulst will now manage PlayStation's global studios branch. The studio is also responsible for developing proprietary game engine Decima, which has been used to create a number of videogame including Death Stranding by Kojima Productions. Sony Computer Entertainment acquired Guerilla in 2005.

"I have worked closely with PlayStation and the complete Globally Studios spouse and children because 2001, and I have the utmost respect and admiration for the inventive talent and ambitious strategies in just the network of studios throughout the US, Europe, and Japan".

So, essentially, Yoshida will be working alongside independent studios to make sure they have what they need to bring their games to PlayStation.

"I am beyond excited to have the opportunity now to lead such an inspired and talented team whose singular mission is to build incredible games for PlayStation fans". Ryan himself is reasonably new to his role, taking about as PlayStation's CEO in April. Per Ryan, who Yoshida will file to, one focal point of the initiative entails "celebrating exterior builders which could be growing unique and sudden experiences". While others feel that PlayStation has shifted away from indies, Ryan says that they have kept up their relationship through the promotion of independent games on PSVR.
