Sega Sammy Holdings, Sega’s parent company, has just announced the departure of Kenji Matsubara, who was its current President and Editorial Director to this day. In a recently released official statement, the company highlights the executive’s resignation with immediate effect, a voluntary march, where Matsubara alleges ” personal motives ” as the background to his decision.
Following his arrival at Sega in 2014 as chief technology officer, Kenji Matsubara became president in 2017, later adding the position of editorial director to his responsibilities as an executive at the company. But before this stage, the Japanese manager held the position of Koei Tecmo President and CEO for 9 years, until November 2010, and then spent two years in Zynga Japan in the role of CEO before jumping into Sonic’s company.
We remind you that Sega has several important releases on the way for the rest of the year. Games like Yakuza: Like a Dragon, which will hit the west in November and will feature a version for Xbox Series X, or strategy titles like A Total War Saga: Troy, which will be available for free on the day of its premiere at the Epic Games Store. Likewise, more news from Sega is expected throughout August, after the company confirmed its presence at Gamescom 2020.
