Hidetaka Suehiro has bid Access Games a fond farewell.

Deadly Premonition director Hidetaka 'Swery' Suehiro announced via Twitter that he has left Access Games.

"It's been about one year since I started treatment," Suehiro said in a Japanese tweet translated by Gematsu. "I have a report. I, Swery, have resigned as a company director at Access Games as of August 31, 2016. Huh? Took a while to say?! Now now. These things happen. I'll make another announcement later about what's next. Thank you for your continued support!"

"Day 360, Unfortunately I retired from Access Games after all. However Don't worry, because my health condition is getting be fine. Love you!," Suehiro tweeted in English.

The treatment Suehiro mentions above is related to his diagnosis of reactive hypoglycemia last year. At the time, he announced on the Access Games blog that he was taking a rest for a year.

Suehiro founded Access Games back in 2002. Since then, he has directed or designed Spy Fiction, Lord of Arcana, Deadly Premonition, and D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die. There is no word what will happen with the latter title, which is episodic in nature.

If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
