In a statement on Twitter, Okubo revealed his last day is August 31, and that he is moving to a new game company in Shibuya. The full statement from Okubo is below:
It’s been a while, but I will leave Bandai Namco Entertainment on August 31. From tomorrow, I will be working at a game company located in Shibuya. 25 years ago, I joined the former Namco and met various people. I am grateful to all the people I met.
Especially through SoulCalibur VI, I received enormous power from players all over the world. Thank you very much.
I’d like to show various goods I received from everyone, but there are too many! Allow me to show the 9 million units cushion, received last week from the development team of Tekken and SoulCalibur!
