Romuald Capron, studio head at Arkane Lyon, has confirmed he’s leaving the company. He announced his departure in an update on LinkedIn. Capron had been studio head at the Lyon studio since 2019, but has been at Arkane for over sixteen years.

In his LinkedIn post, Capron says he was “feeling the need to try something new” and to spend more time with his family. While he doesn’t talk about what exactly is next for him, he says he wants to “keep on helping video game companies, and others, to make their creative vision become a reality.”

Capron says that following his departure, Arkane Lyon will be headed up jointly by technical director Hugues Tardif, executive producer Morgan Barbe, Deathloop game director Dinga Bakaba, and art director and creative director Sébastien Mitton.

Deathloop launched last month for PS5 and PC. It will remain a PlayStation console exclusive until September of next year, which will be a year after its launch.
