Former Square Boss Calls Enix Merger A "Complete Failure"
A whole lot of long-time (and painfully bitter) fans have been saying it for years, and now a former company boss just echoed those sentiments.
Square Enix posted up losses (again) and former Square Co. head honcho Hisashi Suzuki took to Twitter (as noted by Kotaku) to lash out at his previous employer. Suzuki said that the total value of publicly traded stock isn't any higher now than it was when Squaresoft joined Enix. In his words- "The merger was a complete failure. There's no vision for the future." If you're wondering, Suzuki was the president of Square between 2000 and 2002 before the company merged with Enix. Since that time, things haven't exactly been the same.
This sort of falls into the "so what else is new?" category for those who have watched Square's fall from grace. We all remember a time when anything Squaresoft touched turned to instant classic gold...and it's hard to forget.
