Fuga: Melodies of Steel Series Director Leaves CyberConnect2

In an announcement on his official Twitter, Yoann Gueritot, the series director behind Fuga: Melodies of Steel, has officially announced his resignation from CyberConnect2.

According to his message, he’ll join an undisclosed company next week. This decision was already set in stone a few days ago, so despite it being April Fools in Japan right now, the following news of his departure is not an April Fools’ joke.

His message reads:

Today was my last day at CyberConnect2, after nine wonderful years. Everything is cool with the company, but sometimes you just need to move on and think about yourself.

I will forever be grateful to CyberConnect2 for the opportunities to work on titles like Final Fantasy VII Remake or Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, and trusting an annoying gaijin like me to direct the Fuga: Melodies of Steel series.

Next week a new adventure will begin for me at another game company, and I will be waiting for Fuga 3 with excitement as the series’ biggest fan.

I am sad I couldn’t guide my beloved and brave children through the end of their journey, but Fuga already has a strong and solid basis, and I am sure the team will do a fantastic job. I will never forget the great people I met and the things I learned here as a creator and as a person.

Thanks to CyberConnect2, the Fuga team, the fans, and all the people who supported me and this amazing series.
