Kenji Kaido, a producer on Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, announced today that he is no longer working at Sony Computer Entertainment.

"This August I retired from SCE," he wrote on his Twitter account. "Although my plans for the future are still undecided, I will enjoy my summer vacation for a little while.

Kaido joined Sony in 1997 after spending a decade at Taito. Before producing Team Ico's celebrated PlayStation 2 titles, he worked on the PlayStation titles Tomba!, Ape Escape, and Tomba! 2: The Evil Swine Return.

We've reached out to Sony for comment on Kaido's departure. His exit comes less than a year after Team Ico game designer Fumito Ueda left Sony; Ueda is finishing The Last Guardian as a contractor, not an employee. According to Wired, Kaido was not working on The Last Guardian.
