PlayStation will have two CEOs

Sony has announced that Hermen Hulst and Hideaki Nishino are the new CEOs of Sony Interactive Entertainment. This comes over a month after Jim Ryan officially stepped down as the CEO in March. This also comes with the announcement of Studio Business Group which Hulst will lead.

The Studio Business Group, headed by Hermen Hulst, oversees the development of PlayStation’s first-party teams and the adaptation of PlayStation IP for film and TV. Hulst’s previous experience within Sony includes co-founding Guerrilla Games, which created the acclaimed Horizon franchise for PlayStation.

It’s a true privilege to be asked to lead the new Studio Business Group for Sony Interactive. I’m excited to continue working with incredibly talented teams and studios to deliver unforgettable game and entertainment experiences. #sony #playstation #playstationstudios
