According to a written post on sie.com it makes mention that Sony’s intention to restructure at the start of April will focus on creating “attractive” and “powerful first party titles.”
Sony will likely detail this move to push out more “powerful” first-party titles in the near future, but for now we know that this initiative will not slow down the company in its competitive field.
The company’s press release explains the restructure will allow it to “remain competitive” for now and likely in the years to come and deliver on making “PlayStation the best place to play.”
Furthermore, after April 1st, Shawn Layden, chairman of Worldwide Studios and president of Sony Interactive Entertainment will continue to drive the growth of platform “defining content” as noted below:
“Shawn Layden, current Chairman of Worldwide Studios (WWS) and SIEA President, will concentrate his focus on WWS continuing to provide platform-defining content that helps drive the growth of SIE.”
The written post also reveals that sales and marketing divisions of Sony Interactive Entertainment America (SIEA), Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe (SIEE), and Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Asia (SIEJA), will communicate and report to Jim Ryan, deputy president and head of global sales and Marketing at SIE.
The deputy president, Ryan, will also look over other branches in various regions along with president and CEO at SIE, John Kodera. April 1st is an odd time to start restructuring, given that it’s April Fool’s Day.
