Sony Computer Entertainment Japan, Sony Computer Entertainment Asia, and Sony Computer Entertainment Pan-Asia are being dissolved as of today, according to an official statement [via] from Sony this morning. Asia and Pan-Asia are also being dissolved.
In their place is a new company, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia, which will be headed up by President Hiroshi Kawano. We’re awaiting a proper English translation, but it seems the goal was to provide new management structure and support with a focus on publishing and development.
And no, it’s not an April Fools, even Shuhei Yoshida took to Twitter to confirm the news.
