Heres the report:

 

Rez producer leaves Sega

 

A snippet:

 

 

Sega's development department suffered a major blow today when legendary designer Tetsuya Mizuguchi announced he will be leaving the company. Mizuguchi has been working under the Sega banner for more than 10 years and is known for being the producer on a number of best-selling titles such as Sega Rally, Rez, and Space Channel 5.

Can't say I'm suprised, to be honest. I believe that setting up UGA in the first place was a way to get him to stay - give him a skunkworks team to do creative original games outside the regular team AM scheme.

 

As good as the games were, they weren't the huge hits they needed to be - Space Channel 5 in particular.

 

The latest reorganisation brought UGA back into the fold, under Sonic Team I believe. Can't imagine that went down well.
