Deus Ex: Human Revolution
studio Eidos Montreal is saying goodbye to its studio head, Stephane D'Astous, who says his resignation is due to "irreconcilable" differences and poor communication throughout Square Enix.
"Since last year's financial short-coming performance of Square Enix Europe, we (HQ London and GM Eidos-Montreal) have had growing and divergent opinions on what needed to be done to correct the situation," D'Astous said in a statement, as reported by Develop
"The lack of leadership, lack of courage and the lack of communication were so evident, that I wasn't able to conduct my job properly," he continued. "I realized that our differences were irreconcilable, and that the best decision was unfortunately to part ways."
D'astous tweeted his resignation
this past Friday. He has not announced whether he is pursuing a position with a new company. David Anfossi, executive producer for Deus Ex: Human Revolution
, will be taking on the position of studio chief in D'Astous's stead.
