Sources have indicated to GamesIndustry.biz that the head of Sony Worldwide Studios, Phil Harrison, who will leave the company at the end of this week, is to join Atari in the near future.
Harrison, who recently expressed his frustration at Sony Japan’s lack of foresight on the casual games front – ceding ground to Nintendo in the process – will apparently join up with ex-EA executive David Gardner and spearhead Atari’s push into the casual space.
He’s going to be a big loss to Sony. It’s going to be very interesting to see how Sony’s First Party output develops from this point onwards.
