Former Scalebound Producer Leaves Platinum Games
JP Kellams is no longer with the company.
Producer JP Kellams, who’s last game Scalebound with Platinum Games was cancelled by Microsoft earlier this year, has left the studio.
Having worked on Bayonetta and MadWorld as well, Kellams issued a statement on his departure. “15 years ago, I came to Japan to fulfill my childhood dream of making games with my heroes. No matter how hard the day, I always walked into the office in awe of the creativity around me, and with the joy that working with each and every one of my coworkers brought me.
“It is hard to say goodbye to them, to Platinum Games, and to Japan. Yet, embracing new challenges is part of my DNA, and after almost 10 years of working with the team (more with my Capcom/Clover days), it is time to move on to new challenges that I’m excited to share soon. I’ll be forever grateful to all people who have touched this journey, because they’ve shaped who I am. Platinum maintains its luster forever.”
