Rare Executive Leaves for Sony

George Andreas, a veteran with Microsoft-owned Rare, has left to join Sony according to his LinkedIn profile.

“My forward-thinking and unique creative vision combined with my world class user experience-focussed skills have made me a key go-to person throughout the organisation for many hardware and software initiatives,” Andreas wrote on his profile.

Andreas, who has been with Rare for 16 years, will now work from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe’s (SCEE) headquarters in London as creative director. There is currently no information on what projects he will be involved in.

It is notable that while working for Rare Andreas likely saw developmental prototypes of the next generation Xbox though Microsoft will no doubt launch legal action should he reveal any details of the project to their arch-rival.
