Shawn Layden, former president of Sony Interactive Entertainment America, has announced that he has joined Tencent Games as a strategic advisor. Layden left PlayStation in 2019 after a reshuffle that eventually led to Jim Ryan becoming the president of Sony Interactive Entertainment.
Here’s what Layden had to say:
I am delighted to share that I have recently joined Tencent Games as a strategic advisor. In this new role, I hope to advise, assist, and support the team at Tencent as they deepen their activities and commitments within the industry to which I’ve devoted the majority of my career. We are at an epoch defining moment in gaming and interactive entertainment. There are many possible roads ahead but only a few are profound, broadening, inclusive, edifying, inspiring, and / or sustainable. I am thrilled to continue this journey of discovery and thank Tencent for the opportunity.
