Can't say any of this shocks me.
Reading Anime News Network (via Polygon), and this comes up:
America president and CEO Mike Fischer officially left the company this
month. Fischer declined to comment on his resignation other than to say
he left on good terms. Square Enix announced plans to let go
of Fischer last month after laying off half of its marketing staff and
around 20 employees in accounting, IT, and events. He has moved on as
vice president of digital music and video for Amazon in Japan.
Square Enix Europe CEO Phil Rogers will
be taking over Fischer's former position. Rogers will now supervise both
the European and American divisions."
Just more to keep in mind as time goes on.
