It has been confirmed that Sony Computer Entertainment America's senior VP of marketing and PlayStation network Peter Dille has left the company.
Dille spent eight years at SCEA before heading to THQ in 1999. He then rejoined his former employer in 2006.
A replacement has not yet been named, nor a reason for this latest departure given.
"Peter has been a dedicated and valued member of the PlayStation team for more than five years, leading the North American marketing efforts since PlayStation 3 launch in 2006, as well as helping establish the PlayStation Network as a comprehensive entertainment solution in this territory," a statement released to IGN reads.
"The leadership of our marketing effort is a key to the continued growth of the PlayStation brand, and the deep bench of executives and marketing team at SCEA will continue to drive the marketing function in North America until we establish a replacement. We wish Peter well in his future endeavours."
