In a statement made to the press in the U.K. Square Enix is laying off an unknown number of employee in Europe. The publisher is quoted saying, “We do expect changes to the UK office, which will affect personnel. We will update you when the time is right, but our priority right now is for the people within the business.”

Square Enix has not been able to be reached for any further comment.

The layoffs in Europe follow those in Square Enix’s, North American Division. Square Enix is undergoing restructuring due to sales in the west not meeting the company’s expectations.
