In an interview with Kotaku, Inaba was asked about the president of the studio, Minami, and his departure from Platinum Games. Inaba said:
Well, that first ten years is a milestone. And a lot was accomplished during those ten years [under Minami san], so for our former president, he seems to have felt that after reaching that milestone, he really felt like he wanted to do something else.
Essentially, that he felt he did what he set out to do and he went off to look for something new. When asked if it had to do with troubles in the studio, Inaba said:
Oh no, it was nothing like that. If anything, things at the company are going great.
- Inaba said they would like to develop more games for PC, but that’s up to the publisher.
- Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance 2’s chances seem somewhat grim.
- They’d like to make sequels including Bayonetta 3 and Vanquish 2.
