Insider reports that Tetsuya Mizuguchi has walked out on Q Entertainment

CVG reports that an insider has let leak that Tetsuya Mizuguchi (Sega Rally Championship, Rez, Child of Eden, Lumines, Every Extend Extra) has left Q Entertainment, a studio Mizuguchi co-founded in 2003. Mizuguchi’s departure actually took place in 2013, however this was kept quiet from the public until last week when an employee at the company notified CVG that chief executive Shuji Utsumi had also left the company. It is believed that Utsumi’s departure is due to Q Entertainment’s stock being acquired by Sanyo Chemical Industries. CVG reports that these claims are not verified, due to Q Entertianment lacking an English-speaking spokesperson, however CVG was able to confirm via another source that Mizuguchi has left the group.

We wish Mizuguchi, and Utsumi, the best of luck in their future endeavors. Who knows, maybe Mizuguchi could return to SEGA?

    So after most of Sega’s original prized people like Yu Suzuki, Yuji Naka, Yasuhara and now Tetsuya Mizuguchi have all left Sega, who’s next and does Sega have any people left of the same calibre as them with the exception of the Ryu Ga Gotoku/Yakuza creator Toshihiro Nagoshi?

    Yu Suzuki alone is considered the father of video gaming, and the Sega equivilent of Nintendo’s Miyamoto, but his involvement with Sega now?
    He was there from the very start, along with Yuji Naka.

    I’d be glad if he makes his way back to Sega

    Eh? This was widely known at the time. He left to become a professor at university.

    At least he’s not making mobile games.
