Fischer left the company on good terms, according to Polygon.
Fischer joins Amazon as Vice President of Music and Video in Japan.
Before taking over leadership at Square Enix in July 2010, Fischer worked for Namco, Sega, and Microsoft.
Fischer’s departure comes after Square Enix announced a restructuring, causing a number of layoffs in both Europe and the U.S. and President Yoichi Wada to step down. The company posted a net loss of $134 million for its fiscal year 2013, which it attributed to “weak sales of big console titles.” It’s last two games Tomb Raider and Hitman: Absolution each sold over 3 million copies as of March.
