In the past few hours through a press release official by The Pokémon Company Junichi Masuda announced that will abandon his role as Managing Director at Game Freak to become “Chief Creative Fellow” in TPA.

The legendary co-founder by Game Freak, author of the music for Rosso and Blu, and then Director of countless mainline titles starting with Ruby and Sapphire will therefore leave the field of video game development, to devote himself more broadly to the Pokémon brand in general.

It is not yet clear what Masuda-san's next projects will be, and therefore we just have to wish him good luck and await official news on the matter from the manager himself.
