Square Enix axing Japanese staff?

In what is fast appearing as the game industry’s largest ever mass-migration from East to West, mega-publisher Square Enix is rumoured to be reducing as many as 300 staff from its native base in Japan.

The rumours, first reported by Kotaku, come as Square Enix continues to pour its sizable resources into European and American game companies.

Square Enix’s recent string of business deals resemble a company now fully rooted in Western game culture.

The full story can be found over on Develop.
