In yet another shake-up to the corporate structure of PlayStation, CEO Andrew House has stepped down. House, who has been with Sony for over 20 years, will remain with the company until the end of the year as chairman in order to provide a smooth transition to new CEO John Kodera. House issued a statement regarding his departure:
“I’m tremendously proud of what we’ve built with PlayStation and Sony Interactive Entertainment: entertaining millions globally with the best in games and creating a fully fledged digital entertainment company. PlayStation has been a huge part of my life for more than 20 years but with the business having achieved record-breaking success, now seemed to be the right time for me to pursue new challenges.”
Andrew House has been with Sony long enough to have been involved in one way or another with each PlayStation console and is largely responsible for the products and services that make up the PS4 ecosystem that we enjoy today.
