Square Enix’s chief technology officer Yoshihisa Hashimoto has left the publisher for ‘personal reasons’.
He’d been at the company since 2009 having joined from Sega.
Hashimoto will retain a role as technical advisor on FFXIV until a full time replacement can be drafted in. In the mean time, lead programmer Hideyuki Kasuga will oversee the game’s ongoing development.
