Motohiro Okubo, producer of Pac-Man 99, Soulcalibur VI and Tekken 7, has confirmed that he has left Bandai Namco Entertainment as of the 31st of August 2021. Okubo-san will be joining a new studio based in Shibuya, Japan. No other details were revealed.

Here’s what Okubo-san had to say:

25 years ago, I joined the former Namco and met various people. I am grateful to all the people I met. Especially through Soulcalibur VI, I received enormous power from players all over the world. Thank you very much. I’d like to show the various goods I received from everyone, but there are too many! Allow me to show my nine million units cushion, which I received last week from the development team of Tekken and Soulcalibur! Once again, thank you, thank you, and thank you!
