Stig Asmussen and James Griesemer leave Sony

God of War III and inFAMOUS: Second Son leads depart.

Stig Asmussen

Two notable developers have left Sony.

Earlier in the day, James Griesemer, lead designer on the Friday-due inFAMOUS: Second Son, confirmed he left Sucker Punch Productions.

“I’m excited for people to get their hands on it,” Griesemer said on Twitter. “And yes, I have left SP. Not really talking about it yet, tho.”

And now, sources at IGN have confirmed Stig Asmussen, director of God of War III, has left Sony Santa Monica Studio.

Asmussen was purportedly working on a new IP at the studio, which might have been cancelled as a result of recent layoffs at the company. He is now reportedly interviewing at several studios for a new position.
