Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Producer Leaves Konami
Dave Cox, who has been with Konami for 17 years, announced that today is his final day with the company. Cox's most recent high-profile projects were the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow titles.
Cox made the announcement via Twitter, but he does not indicate specifically what his futures plans may be. He does mention exploring "new opportunities," however, so it appears as though there is something positive ahead.
After seventeen years I have decided to leave Konami to explore new opportunities. Today is my final day with the company #endofanera— Dave Cox (@kiddracul) August 29, 2014
This is a surprising move, considering that Cox was the face of the rebooted Castlevania series. Whether or not the disappointing reviews for Lords of Shadow 2 is playing any role in the future of the franchise or Cox's decision is unclear, but I hope we see him again before too long.
