Square Enix have confirmed Lay-offs at their European Offices
No reason given except reviewing business.
Square Enix may be restructuring according to a statement by the company. The side effects of that is some jobs could be lost due to cutting cost. Their European offices are said to be affected.
The company was disappointed with the sales figures of Tomb Raider, Sleeping Dogs, and Hitman: Absolution, and this could be a result of that since these games had that European flair to it.
“We are reviewing our business in Europe to ensure we have the right structure, content and skills for the changing entertainment landscape,” Square Enix told MCV.
“We do expect changes to the UK office, which will affect personnel. We will update you when the time is right, but our priority right now is for the people within the business.”
Meanwhile the highly productive Japanese branch won’t be suffering lay-offs, shocking I know.
