Guerrilla Games’s head honcho has just been promoted. Hermen Hulst, who helped launch some of Sony’s most recognizable franchises (e.g., Killzone, Horizon: Zero Dawn) now leads PlayStation Worldwide Studios. He’ll be managing the likes of Naughty Dog, Santa Monica, Sucker Punch, Bend Studio, Insomniac, and Media Molecule. Why Shawn Layden left his post remains a mystery.
“Hermen is one of the most effective and well-respected leaders in the video game industry,” Ryan said today. “Worldwide Studios is a critical part of the future success of the company, and we must deliver on the promise we have made to gamers to create imaginative and exciting content that is truly unique to PlayStation. I have no doubt Hermen can lead our teams to deliver compelling and diverse experiences at a steady cadence.”
