In the past hours Ryosuke Yoshida, one of the main minds behind Devil May Cry 5, announced that it has officially left Capcom after 12 years of honored service at the Japanese company.
On a personal note, I quit Capcom on July 4.
I was very happy to be able to develop for 12 years at Capcom.
From now on, I will leave Japan and go overseas to develop games for next-gen.
(I work from home in JP until COVID-19 calms down.)
I will continue doing my best！

The designer, who has also worked on titles such as Monster Hunter: Generations, did not specify in Tweet where he communicated his separation with Capcom the reasons that led to his farewell to the Japanese company, however Yoshida has no intention of withdrawing from game design, given that he announced his transfer to the West to work on new titles for next-gen.
We just have to wish Yoshida-san good luck for this new adventure outside Japan.
