Square Enix has reduced the workforce of its Los Angeles, California, office this week, laying off an undisclosed number of staff.
The publisher confirmed the news to Massively, with Senior Director of Public Relations Riley Brennan telling the site:
"In order to ensure it is operating effectively, the Square Enix Los Angeles office has reduced its workforce."
"This was a difficult decision, and we wish the best for those affected by these changes. The decision will not have any impact on the operations of MMO titles."
The layoffs will reportedly not impact the upcoming launch of MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.
In August this year, Square Enix posted a $26 million quarterly loss. Its remaining slate of games for the current fiscal year includes high-profile new releases Tomb Raider and Hitman: Absolution.
