Rumor - One of the People Behind the Luminous Engine Has Left Square Enix

Rumor - One of the People Behind the Luminous Engine Has Left Square Enix

Written by Lauren — 22 Jul 2014

Although it has not been officially announced, there are now reasons to believe that Square Enix's technical director Yoshihisa Hashimoto has left the company.

Speculation began with a post one of Hashimoto's Facebook (via Twitter)wall where a friend wished Hashimoto luck in his new job which Hashimoto then acknowledged.

Hashimoto's work with Square Enix began in 2009. His efforts were met with a high amount of praise when Square Enix presented the Luminous Engine's capabilities with the Agni's Philosophy tech demo in 2012.

For the moment though, there has not been any confirmation on this by Square Enix or Hashimoto officially. Hopefully we'll have more information in the near future.
