Sony dumps Square Enix

Sony has sold 9,520,000 of its shares invested in Square Enix today, to the tune of approximately $46.9 million USD. The shares have been sold to Nikko Securities Inc.

Whilst Sony’s statement doesn’t imply any separation for the companies, it doesn’t look like it bodes well for the relations between them.

In terms of what gamers can expect, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see another third-party pounce upon Square Enix for future exclusives, should the ties between Sony and the developers deteriorate after this sale, which does look like a lack of faith in the Square Enix brand to the outside world.
