Yuji Naka confirms he resigned from Square Enix and is now thinking of retiring from games industry


Reports filled the internet yesterday after it was discovered that iconic video game designer Yuji Naka, who had wrapped up his work on the divisive Balan Wonderworld, had left Square Enix where he was given a one shot chance to make a brand new 3D platformer. It now appears as though Mr. Naka resigned from his position at Square Enix in April, telling his fans on Twitter that he can’t speak about what happened right now. He says that he is now considering retirement from the video games industry, so he can presumably relax with friends and family. Here’s what Mr. Naka said on Twitter:

“Due to inquiries from the media and users on Twitter, [I am announcing that] I resigned from Square Enix at the end of April 2021. I cannot tell you why right now, but I hope to be able to tell you when the time comes. As for my future plans, I’m already 55 years old, so retirement is in the cards. Here is a photo that was taken for the Sega Console Historia interview.”
