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.
