We knew Moore was leaving like a month ago. His Linkedin profile suggested as much. We have also heard that supposedly Sony didn't renew contracts that were going to end beginning April. So there's that too.

thanks, so it seems like it was due to another team reduction, perhaps due to the transfer of the global management for third/second party efforts.
