In the Tweet, Habu explains that this was due to a personnel change within the company and that he trusts the new director to develop the next Digimon Story game. So he hopes that fans will not worry about the quality. In a follow-up Tweet, Habu states that his biggest treasure in life is the fact that he could work on Digimon and see the passion that fans have for the series. He thanks all of the fans for loving his work and hopes they will continue to do so in the future.

Kazumasa Habu worked on the Digimon games between 2010 and 2022. He was a producer for all of the roles except Digimon Story: Lost Evolution, in which he was a production assistant. Games that Habu produced include Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, Digimon All-Star Rumble, and Digimon Survive.

Bandai Namco revealed the upcoming Digimon Story game during Digimon Con 2022. The story will feature the Olympos XII as central characters and will take place in the Digital World. Habu has not said who the new producer and director working on this game are.
