Square Enix considering further acquisitions


Square Enix has one goal: Be a more global company. After recently acquiring Eidos (and leaving its identity intact), Square Enix has exhibited an appetite that's larger than we could have imagined. President Yoichi Wada told the Financial Times that the Eidos purchase really gave Square Enix "a good platform from which to expand," possibly opening the way to another acquisition.

Wada explained the necessity for more global expansion as one dictated by the Japanese market. He described Japan as a "closed environment," and with no fresh blood or ideas coming in, Square Enix is forced to look outward. And then there's the US market weighing in, which Wada said has seen strong growth over the years and become the biggest market for games, despite being behind Japan for many years.
