PlayStation's London studio has announced that senior producer Justin Der Gregorian passed away over the weekend at the age of 44. 

"It's with great sadness that we are sharing our dear friend and senior producer, Justin Der Gregorian is no longer with us," wrote the studio.

"Justin was hugely loved and his positivity has had a massive impact on our work at the studio as well as in our lives," concluded PlayStation London. "We will remember him, always."
