Fuga: Melodies of Steel and Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2 director Yoann Gueritot announced his departure from CyberConnect 2 on Twitter. March 31, 2023 is his final day at the studio, and the Fuga: Melodies of Steel director is looking forward to his next endeavor at another game company.
Alongside his director duties for the Fuga: Melodies of Steel series, Yoann Gueritot also worked on titles such as Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot and Final Fantasy VII Remake. Although Gueritot is sad about leaving the series and company behind, he looks forward to a potential Fuga: Melodies of Steel 3 as a fan. Gueritot thanks CyberConnect2, the Fuga: Melodies of Steel development team, and fans for the continued support.
Here’s the full message by Gueritot:
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.
