Square Enix is currently undergoing layoffs in both the US and Europe as part of their restructuring process

Square Enix is reorganizing to “aggressively” pursue a multiplatform strategy because the industry is in a crisis and their big games, Final Fantasy XVI and Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, are not selling as well as they were supposed to. This is sad news because it means more layoffs, which have already started in the US and Europe. People who work in the games industry are sharing the sad news on Twitter as the process of saying sorry starts.

Based on what VGC said, Square Enix employees were told in a meeting on Monday. The number of people who will be let go is still unknown, but Square Enix said that the layoffs will mostly affect people who work in publishing, IT, and the company’s Collective indie game division. They will happen over the next month. This week, employees who will be affected will be told; UK employees will enter

We hope that everyone who is involved in this mess gets back on their feet. How sure are you that Square Enix’s new strategy and direction will work? Leave a comment below and let us know.
