Square Enix cuts staff by 10 percent, keeps bike guy

I don’t know who they’re getting rid of and who they’re keeping, but I hope they kept the lesbian scissoring bike guy on board. That guy is their greatest asset!

Square Enix is looking to clean up shop, sending home about 10 percent of its 3,000+ employees. The cut is scheduled to take place early next year, in a move that they say will revitalize the company.

It’s strange, as Square Enix is making more money than they did last year, and they have their biggest title, Final Fantasy XIII, coming out soon. Altafista reminds us that they’ve recently done some merger and acquisition work, and that it may be time to clean house a bit.
