New Square Enix president promises a 'fundamental review' of the organization
As some of you may or may not already know, Square Enix recently announced the resignation of president and CEO Yoichi Wada. Replacing him is Yosuke Matsuda, who's already got some pretty big plans for the Japanese developer.
Speaking at a press conference in Japan yesterday, Matsuda revealed that he intends to review Square's entire portfolio of intellectual property and assets, stating that he plans to assess everything from a "zero-based budgeting standpoint."
"Due to the radical change of environment," Matsuda explained, "I'd like to fundamentally review what works and what doesn't work for our company, then cast our resources to wards extending what makes us successful and thoroughly squeezing out what doesn't."
Matsuda also named Phil Rogers as the new director of Square Enix Holdings.
