Sony’s just confirmed that SCE UK head Ray Maguire is to leave the company after a 17-year career.

“Having been here right from the start and after a lot of soul searching, I feel that now is the right time for me to move on,” said Maguire.

“I am confident that I can leave the business in the hands of the brilliant teams here in the UK and across Europe that I’ve had the honour of working with. I’ve made so many great friends during my time here and although the thought of leaving was quite tough, it is essential for me to continue to grow.”

SCEE boss Andrew House added: “In a career at SCE spanning over 17 years, Ray has helped establish PlayStation as a household name and a major entertainment brand,”

“Ray is consumer focused and over the years has built and maintained a reputation as one of the industry’s most respected senior figures. We wish him luck in his future endeavours.”
