Former Sony Interactive Entertainment America president and CEO Shawn Layden has come up against none other than Chinese giant Tencent Games.
“I am pleased to announce that I have recently joined Tencent Games as a strategic advisor,” Layden said in a new LinkedIn post.
He added: “In this new role, I hope to advise, assist and support the team at Tencent as they deepen their activities and commitments within the industry to which I have devoted the majority of my career. We are in an epoch-making moment in gaming and interactive entertainment. There are many possible paths ahead, but only a few are profound, expansive, inclusive, edifying, inspiring and/or sustainable. I am excited to continue this journey of discovery and thank Tencent for the opportunity.”
Shawn Layden left Sony Interactive Entertainment back in 2019 and hasn’t publicly taken on a brand new role since.
