Rez and Child of Eden creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi is moving away from games development.
As reported by Eurogamer, the industry veteran and Q Entertainment CCO is to take up a more ambassadorial at the company.
“Right now Mizuguchi does not produce the games,” said studio director Nobuhiko Shimizu.
"He's now more of a spokesperson. He's not developing stuff right now."
Mizuguchi has worked on numerous titles during his illustrious career, including likes of Sega Rally Championship, Rez, Space Channel 5 and most recently Childen of Eden for Xbox 360 and PS3.
Q Entertainment’s last game, Lumines Electronic Symphony, was produced by James Mielke.
Since the title’s release however he has since left the studio for Kyoto-based outfit Q Games.
The Tokyo developer is currently looking into card-battling games, with its next project likely to combine the genre with music.
"We are now thinking about combining music games with card-battle games," said Shimizu.
"We now have several productions to develop that kind of game."
