After a year in entering the market, Square Enix shuts down its Indian operations without the release of a single game.

Square Enix India was set up to develop mobile games in the Indian market in collaboration with Indian Developers. While they didn't develop games themselves they had been working with several developers across India on multiple projects but none were green-lit by Square Enix HQ in Japan.

MCV tried contacting Atul Vibhandik, the now Ex-Vice President of Square Enix India but he refused to comment on the matter, although he did confirm Square Enix HQ had indeed decided to close its India operations.

The Square Enix India office had six employees which are all laid off now.

It is believed that the change in management at Square Enix HQ was the culprit especially since when Fukushima was in charged of management it had been stated that he didn't expect to see results until at least 3 years. Another thing that could be playing a large role is the fact that many of the projects presented weren't even green-lit because despite the lower end market they were aiming towards it still required to be up to par with Square Enix's other games.
