Another Fire Sale At Square Enix?

According to a recent report from Japan-based analyst David Gibson, it’s sounding like Square Enix is looking to sell more assets. Gibson has said that the sale of Crystal Dynamics and Eidos to Emrbacer Group was “phase 1″ of the company’s plans. Now, the organization wants to focus on the “diversification of studio capital structure.”

“Rising development costs of making games means with 100% owned studios, they need to be selective and concentrate resources, which limits expansion,” Gibson wrote. Therefore, Square Enix will conduct “a studio portfolio review. “Some studios will remain 100% while others will change (equity method or joint venture).”

Square Enix has been busy selling lots of commodities. As previously mentioned, Square Enix sold its western development arm to Embracer Group for $300 million.
