What Is Happening to Square Enix?

In a post to investors, CEO Takashi Kiryu spoke of the company’s intention of “being more selective and focused in the allocation of development resources.”

The company has not revealed which games have been canceled, but this follows Kiryu’s statement in February at a financial results briefing that Square Enix needs to diversify its IPs, break into more genres, and not be so reliant on the Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest franchises.

But don’t worry if you are a Final Fantasy fan. Final Fantasy 14: Dawntrail will still be released on July 2. After that, we must wait to see what Square Enix has planned.
