Final Fantasy XIII composer quits
The man responsible for writing the sweeping musical score to Final Fantasy XIII has left Square Enix, joining other high profile composers attached to the series that have quit to pursue other endeavours.
Square Enix Online has the story in detail, describing composer Masashi Hamauzu as just the latest in a series of departures from the company's audio design team.
Two other staffers recently exited, with the outlet projecting that more employees are expected to leave in the coming months. This, of course, after luminary Nobuo Uematsu leaving after 20 years of work in 2004.
Hamauzu has already received attention for his work on Final Fantasy XIII, though his 15-year stint with Square Enix put him on notable games like Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy X, and Musashi: Samurai Legend.
