PlayStation's Adam Boyes is leaving Sony to 'go make games again'

VP of third-party relations

Sony turned it around this console generation by listening to and more actively working with game developers which has, in turn, benefited PlayStation gamers. When I think of the brand in its current state, a handful of public-facing individuals come to mind. Third-party relations vice president Adam Boyes, who you'll remember from on-stage E3 appearances and fun goofs like this PS4 used-game video, is among them. It's unfortunate to hear that he'll be leaving the company soon.

"After an incredible journey here at PlayStation, I've made the very hard decision to return to the world of game development," Boyes revealed on Twitter and the PlayStation Blogcast.

"The past 4+ years have been an absolutely amazing experience! 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!"

Before starting at Sony in 2012, Boyes worked for Midway, Capcom, and his own game production company, Beefy Media. The specifics of his move aren't clear yet, but responding to a tweet asking for some clarity, he said that he's "going to make games again on the independent side."

You would recognize this guy if you watched the Sony E3 press conference this year, he was the host there.

I watched E3 both years. Still no memory of this guy. He must not have made much of an impression. He looks like your average everyday dough boy.

"It's unfortunate to hear that he'll be leaving the company soon."
