Square Enix President Resign due weak sales of big console titles


SquareEnix weak sales

 

Square Enix president and CEO Yoichi Wada has stepped down after disappointing sales of some of its big titles like Sleeping Dogs, Hitman: Absolution and Tomb Raider.

“Despite the high critical acclaim, [the games listed] failed to meet each target,” the Sales briefing notes. “In particular, North America sales force was ineffective, ending up with 2/3 of number of units sold in Europe.”

Square Enix estimates that in North America and Europe, Tomb Raider will have sold 3.4 million units, Sleeping Dogs 1.75 million, and Hitman: Absolution 3.6 million.
