Ryan identified as the variety of impartial video games that Yoshida will now be concentrating on much more carefully "the lifeblood of the market".

In addition to Hulst's announcement, SIE has also confirmed that PlayStation veteran Shuhei Yoshida will leave his role at WWS to lead a new company initiative.

Hulst will be taking on this job managing Sony's 14 studios immediately. Ever since 2004, the company he helped create has exclusively made games for Sony's PlayStation platforms, with Worldwide Studios acquiring Guerrilla back in 2005.

The studio also worked with Kojima Productions to suppor the development of Death Stranding, which uses Guerrilla's Decima game engine.

In this position Hulst will lead coordinate with all of Sony's big developers to streamline first-party games development, from Insomniac Games in California to Guerrilla Games in the Netherlands.

The executive said he is beyond excited to have the opportunity to lead an inspired and talented team whose singular mission is to build incredible games for PlayStation fans.

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. "These wildly creative experiences deserve focus and a champion like Shu at PlayStation who will ensure the entire SIE organisation works together to better engage with independent developers through a culture of supporting and celebrating their contributions to PlayStation platforms".
