Gueritot thanks CyberConnect2, the Fuga: Melodies of Steel development team, and fans for the continued support.

    Here’s the full message by Gueritot:

    Departing CyberConnect2

    Today was my last day at CyberConnect2, after nine wonderful years. Everything is cool with the company, but sometimes you just need to move on and think about yourself.

    I will forever be grateful to CyberConnect2 for the opportunities to work on titles like Final Fantasy VII Remake or Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, and trusting an annoying gaijin like me to direct the Fuga: Melodies of Steel series.

    Next week a new adventure will begin for me at another game company, and I will be waiting for Fuga 3 with excitement as the series’ biggest fan.

    I am sad I couldn’t guide my beloved and brave children through the end of their journey, but Fuga already has a strong and solid basis, and I am sure the team will do a fantastic job. I will never forget the great people I met and the things I learned here as a creator and as a person.

    Thanks to CyberConnect2, the Fuga team, the fans, and all the people who supported me and this amazing series.

    Lastly, Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2 launches May 11 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store.
