Square Enix livestreaming from E3 show floor

New, 8 comments

Square Enix will be livestreaming from the E3 show floor throughout the three-day convention, the publisher announced today.

The livestream, called "Square Enix Presents," will show off the company's upcoming slate of games directly to Square Enix fans. The publisher did not list specific titles today, but said it plans to announce a full schedule of games and personalities for the program soon.

"Square Enix will be showcasing a terrific lineup of games this E3 expo," said Akio Oofuji, marketing director for Square Enix Japan. "Square Enix Presents is a new way we can engage on a more meaningful and personal level with our community and fans and share with them the spectacle and excitement of E3."

Polygon reported earlier today that Mike Fischer, who was the president and CEO of Square Enix of America, recently quit the job for a position with Amazon in Japan. It's unclear what effect, if any, his departure will have on Square Enix's plans for E3, although rumors abound that the company is looking to shut down its mobile gaming efforts in North America.

Square Enix reported a loss of $105 million for its most recent fiscal year, which ended March 31. The publisher blamed the "extraordinary" financial shortfall on missed sales targets for its three biggest Western games — Sleeping Dogs, Hitman: Absolution and Tomb Raider — and a highly competitive console market.
