Yuji Naka, the near-legendary Sega developer has announced that he will be leaving Sega to found his own development studio. On June 1, Naka will found Prope, Ltd. According to Naka, the name Prope is Latin for "nearby" or "beside" and will promote their cause. They will have full publishing rights to their games globally. This doesn't mean that Naka is completely forsaking Sega, however, as Sega has been hiring developers lately to work on single games, like Monolith with Condemned or Pseudo with Full Auto, and they currently plan to invest 10% into Prope. No games have been announced, yet.
