Square Enix Europe is a British video game publisher which is wholly owned by Square Enix, a Japanese video game company. Square Enix acquired game publisher Eidos Interactive on 22 April 2009, which was then merged with Square Enix's European publishing wing and reorganized as Square Enix Europe. [1] This list includes retail, downloadable, and mobile games published by Square Enix Europe since its formation in April 2009. [note 1] Prior to its purchase, Eidos plc was the holding company for the Eidos group of companies, including publisher Eidos Interactive and development studios such as Crystal Dynamics, IO Interactive, Beautiful Game Studios, and Eidos Montréal. [2] The majority of the titles published by Square Enix Europe have been developed by those former subsidiaries or by newer Square Enix subsidiaries such as Square Enix Montréal. Additionally, most of the titles belong to franchises previously published by Eidos, such as the Tomb Raider , Hitman , Deus Ex , and Championship Manager franchises.

Square Enix Limited, doing business as Square Enix Europe, is a British video game publisher, acting as the European subsidiary of Square Enix. The company was founded as Domark in 1984, named after the founders Mark Strachan and Dominic Wheatley. In 1995, the company was acquired by Eidos and was merged with two other studios and renamed Eidos Interactive the following year. Eidos was in turn acquired by SCi in 2005, and Eidos Interactive was sold to Square Enix in 2009. On 9 November 2009, Square Enix completed the merger of its existing European branch with Eidos Interactive, renaming the resulting company Square Enix Europe.

A video game publisher is a company that publishes video games that have been developed either internally by the publisher or externally by a video game developer. As with book publishers or publishers of DVD movies, video game publishers are responsible for their product's manufacturing and marketing, including market research and all aspects of advertising.

Crystal Dynamics, Inc. is an American video game developer that was founded in 1992 by Judy Lang, Madeline Canepa and Dave Morse. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, it was acquired by Eidos Interactive in 1998. After Square Enix's acquisition of Eidos in 2009, it became a subsidiary of Square Enix. Crystal Dynamics was the first licensed developer for 3DO. The company's mascot was the video game character Gex the Gecko until 2000.

[3] Several other series, including Deus Ex, Championship Manager, and Just Cause , have also sold several million copies over their lifetimes. [3] [4]
