Following news earlier this week that Yu Suzuki hasn’t been working at Sega for ages, Sega US boss Simon Jeffery has retracted the statement – made in a Gamasutra interview – to say that he was essentially wrong.
“I can safely say that Yu Suzuki is in fact still a Sega employee,” he said, adding that Suzuki “is a Creative Officer of Sega Corp.”
Jeffery said in the original interview that Suzuki was “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 any more.”
Shenmue III will release on Dreamcast II in the third quarter.

Everyone else is running this and we don’t want to feel left out. In an interview with Gamasutra, Sega US boss Simon Jeffery has confirmed that Shenmue developer Yu Suzuki doesn’t work at Sega any more. Which is probably why you haven’t heard anything about anything he’s been doing at Sega for the past 3,000 years.
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…
I wasn’t sure if he was still actually a Sega employee.
SJ: Not as far as I know.
There. Now we’re part of the gang.
