Eidos Montreal head Stephane D'Astous has resigned from Square Enix and hit out at his former employer.

Last month, as part of a company-wide re-jig, D'Astous began work on a new project alongside new head of studios Darrell Gallagher. But the role was short-lived, with D'Astous today confirming his departure from the company.

"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," explained D'Astous in a statement.

"The lack of leadership, lack of courage and the lack of communication were so evident, that I wasn't able to conduct my job correctly. I realised that our differences were irreconcilable, and that the best decision was unfortunately to part ways."

It's not yet known what D'Astous will do next.
