Andrew House, the President and Chief Executive Officer for Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) is stepping down after a 27 year tenure.
House has been around for most of PlayStation‘s history, working on the PlayStation 1’s launch and then becoming the Executive Vice President for Sony Computer Entertainment America by 2002. In 2011 he then succeeded Kaz Hirai as President and Chief Executive Officer. He oversaw the release of the PlayStation 4 and Hideo Kojima’s first non-Konami game, Death Stranding.
He won’t be leaving Sony just yet though, as he will be staying on at SIE as Chairman for now.
House will be succeeded by Deputy President John Kodera.
