Stephane D’Astous, who helped found Eidos Montreal and acted as its general manager, has resigned from his position at the company due to “irreconcilable” differences.
“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,” he said in a statement to Develop.
“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.”
D’Astous will be replaced by Deus Ex: Human Revolution executive producer David Anfossi.
Eidos Montreal, known for the Deus Ex series, is currently developing Thief for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
