Square Enix Europe Formed From Eidos Acquisition

Square Enix Europe Formed From Eidos Acquisition

July 7, 2009 | By Leigh Alexander

From Square Enix's acquisition of Eidos emerges a new European arm for the Japanese publisher, currently known as Square Enix Europe, to be headed by Eidos boss Phil Rogers.

The Eidos name will still be used to brand its own developed games, but the move represents the elimination of the Eidos organization as publishing label.

"Square Enix Europe (final name TBC) will include Eidos’ global network of studios and combine the Square Enix and Eidos European sales and marketing businesses to create one efficient and powerful structure for game publishing," a spokesperson told UK trade site MCV.

In the move, some jobs will be lost, according to MCV's report, although the spokesperson didn't specify how many staff will be cut.

"Unfortunately we are expecting some jobs to be impacted directly by this in both Europe and North America," said the spokesperson. "We are hoping to minimize this wherever possible and offer support and advice to any employees directly affected."
