Fuga: Melodies of Steel director Yoann Gueritot leaves CyberConnect2

Fuga: Melodies of Steel

Fuga: Melodies of Steel series director Yoann Gueritot announced he’s parted ways with developer CyberConnect2.

Gueritot left the Japanese studio as of March 31st, reassuring fans of the furry strategy series Fuga that he left the studio on good terms.

“Everything is cool with the company, but sometimes you just need to move on and think about yourself,” he said on Twitter. Gueritot will begin a new gig at another game developer next week.

His last title at CyberConnect2 is the forthcoming Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2, which launches on May 11 across PC (via Steam and the Epic Games Store), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch.

Here’s the word from Gueritot:

Today was my last day at CyberConnect2, after 9 wonderful years.

Everything is cool with the company, but sometimes you just need to move on and think about yourself.

I will forever be grateful to CC2 for the opportunities to work on titles like FFVII Remake or DBZ Kakarot, and trusting an annoying gaijin like me to direct the Fuga: Melodies of Steel series.

Next week a new adventure will begin for me at another game company, and I will be waiting for Fuga 3 with excitement as the series’ biggest fan.

I am sad I couldn’t guide my beloved and brave children through the end of their journey, but Fuga already has a strong and solid basis, and I am sure the team will do a fantastic job.

I will never forget the great people I met and the things I learned here as a creator and as a person.

Thanks to CC2, the Fuga team, the fans, and all the people who supported me and this amazing series.
