Eidos Montreal founder slams decline of Square Enix's Western studios as "train wreck in slow motion"

Stephane D’Astous, founder and former boss of Deus Ex developer Eidos Montreal, has described Square Enix’s handling of its Western studios as a “train wreck in slow motion” in an explosive new interview.

“It was a trajectory that could be predicted,” D’Astous said, discussing the decline of Square Enix’s Western studios, and Eidos Montreal in particular. “I left because things were missing at head office. [Pre-Square Enix] Eidos has a great tradition of development teams, but they don’t have superior knowledge of how to sell their games. And that was quite clear.”
