Sony confirmed that Dyer has resigned to go work at Zynga, where he will become the company's head of partner publishing. Dyer first joined Sony in 2008 and previously worked as president of Eidos and later of Crystal Dynamics. Like Steinberg, Sony has yet to announce Dyer's replacement.
Gamasutra spoke to Dyer
about his role at the company last year -- at which time he was optimistic about the company's prospects with the PlayStation 3.
Earlier this year, Sony lost another executive when SVP of marketing Peter Dille left the company
social app and game monetization company Tapjoy.
In October, Sony announced that Guy Longworth would step in
to fill Dille's position. Longworth previously worked as a marketing executive for the food industry, working for companies like Procter & Gamble, Kraft Foods, and Kellog's.
