That's quite the weird jump in industry field.

It is! I wonder if he was basically pushed/forced to resign to centralize Squenix's control, like they already did with marketing divisions. Then he pushes how good a liaison he is between companies with presences in Japan and the US, and gets the Amazon job.

Maybe he got tired of Squeenix being a terrible company as of late? *shrugs*

Nothing really wrong with Amazon.

Only three years? Why so short of a time?

I sure hope this doesn't affect production of KH3

It's not being made right now. They've stated a couple times that they won't start production of that game until Versus is finished.

Everyone is leaving the sinking ship known as Square-Enix.

Maybe if Square made good games instead of Final Nail in the Coffin Thirteen-3 or whatever it's called, people might not all be jumping ship, get back to making good games like the old FF's/Kingdom Hearts...Chrono Trigger etc.
