Staff Cuts Confirmed At Square Enix

Staff Cuts Confirmed At Square Enix

Square Enix Senior Director of Public Relations Riley Brennan has confirmed rumours that staff cuts have been made at the publisher’s Los Angeles office.

Despite rumours that a number of online titles would be affected by the lay-offs, the publisher has stated that the number of staff was reduced in the name of restructuring and that the current development of its MMO titles would not be affected by the staff cuts.

Speaking to Massively, Brennan stated, “In order to ensure it is operating effectively, the Square Enix Los Angeles office has reduced its workforce. This was a difficult decision and we wish the best for those affected by these changes. The decision will not have any impact on the operations of MMO titles. Customers can expect those services to continue, including the upcoming launch of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.”
