The former head of Eidos Montreal, Stephane D’Astous, has left the company after saying his relationship with Square Enix, who run the Eidos studios, had become “irreconcilable.”
Stephane D’Astous, who during a company reshuffle last month was reassigned to a new post, released a statement saying that since the reveal of the poor financials has led to differing opinions between studio and publisher on how to deal with the problem. That wasn’t the only criticism.
“The lack of leadership, lack of courage and the lack of communication were so evident, that I wasn’t able to conduct my job correctly.”
Of course this is just one side of the argument, but it can’t be denied that Square Enix are struggling following a $134 million loss last fiscal year.
