they barely release any console games in that 9 months period.

and FF has nothing to do with it. it's Hitman and Sleeping Dogs.

XIII-2 actually make profit for them in the previous period.


*coughcough*all the bravest, XIII-2, LR, XIV ARR *coughcough*


...

XIII-2 was the previous period, All the Bravest is not on the console and released after this period, LR is not even close to being out, and XIV ARR is what, in beta?

Sooo...what was your post even about?


Why was XIII-2 and LR announced? Why did they need to recreate an entire game? Why was All The Bravest created?

They have only themselves to blame. Hopefully they'll earn enough from selling Luminous that they can stay in business.


I don't think anyone wants to use an engine that expensive.


They will have to.

I'm unsure how to feel about SE financial losses. On the one hand I'm hoping they adopt some new, more efficient method of releasing their games but on the other, the losses they incur may cause the to stop releasing some games in the West, especially any potential rare gems.

Hopefully things work out for the better this year. I may have hated XIII-2 and refused to buy it, while their newer games just don't pique my interests (save for the new Tomb Raider). But LR looks promising enough based on what I've seen.

It's not that bad. Square-Enix just isn't performing as well as they have in the past. They are not on the verge of bankruptcy. So selling their propriety game engine at this stage in game would be foolish.

As long as they won't stop publishing games that's fine by me.

On the other hand, content for other platforms such as PCs


Then release your games on the PC.
And no, not on the SE store.

Protip:

Abandon Lightning once and for all. Move on.


Yeah, because abandoning the current most popular FF character in Japan and the character who is still netting profits is a great way to startv earning profits! Oh, wait...


Yes, all the people who are sick of looking at that pink abomination can't wait to throw money at her after not having any new protagonist since 2008 and after being forced to like her for all the years.

Oh wait...


Given Lighting has won a variety of popularity polls in Japan...Your personal opinion =/= the general opinion of the fanbase.
