Sega of America President Simon Jeffery has been in many interviews recently, including this new one from Gamasutra. In it, he mentions that Yu Suzuki is not an employee anymore.
Speaking of names, what has happened to Yu Suzuki?
- SJ: Last I heard, he was doing some online stuff in China.
He's spearheaded an arcade racing title. Is he just really off in his own world?
- SJ: Yeah. He's kind of his own man right now. Every now and again, he'll come up with an idea, and I don't think anything has come out of that yet, but we're still working with him. He's not an employee anymore, but...
CORRECTION: The day after the interview, Simon Jeffery retracted his statements, saying that Suzuki is actually a Creative Director for Sega.
